Register for Anti-Gravity Strength
Struggling with your Pull-Ups? Stuck at the bottom of your Handstand Push-Up? Or do you just want to be able to do some badass weighted Chins? A new cycle Coach Arturo‘s critically acclaimed Anti-Gravity Strength class starts on September 8th, and there’s just one spot left. Better grab it!
Each AG Strength class will be an hour-and-a-half long, focusing on the strength and skills needed to improve Pull-Ups and Handstand Push-Ups. This will include a variety of skill exercises, progressions, weighted and strict practice, and other techniques to teach, develop, and perfect your Pull-Up and Handstand Push-Up. This fundamental strength work will carry over into other CrossFit gymnastics movements, including the coveted Muscle-Up. The class meets 2 times per week for 8 weeks according to the schedule below.
Tuesdays from 6pm to 7:30pm
Saturdays from 11am to 12:30pm
Cost and Eligibility
The cost is $160 per month ($320 total plus NY sales tax). This cycle is open to all CFSBK members as well as CrossFitters from other affiliates.
What Happens in a Class?
The first class will begin with an assessment of each individual’s upper body push, pull, and core strength. Once the assessment is completed, each AG Strength class will consist of skill work, strength development, and flexibility training based on your personal needs, weaknesses, and strengths. If a member chooses to do a CrossFit group class on the same day, we recommend doing the skill and strength work from the AG Strength cycle first. Arturo can advise you on this on a case by case basis. Just ask!
News and Notes
- Today is a scheduled rest/recovery day, but don’t fret! We are still open, of course, and running on a normal class schedule, but you’ll have the option of doing either yesterday or tomorrow’s programming (which can be found in the comments section of today and every Rest Day’s post). We recently explained why we program Rest Days twice a week and how you can get the most of of them.
Dear Freelancer gym members: We are planning a film and speaker presentation on the New York Health Act—a single-payer health insurance program that would cover all New Yorkers for ALL health are needs without co-pays or deductibles. The legislation has a good chance of passing but needs more support from small businesses and freelancers. One of our members, Dr. Judy, is organizing the program and would like to talk with any freelancers who have contacts to the Freelancers Union. If you can help, please email Judy at judith.feldman [at] yahoo.com.
- Hey, the 2018 Subway Series kicks off right here at CFSBK this Sunday, and there are still some spots left! Go here to get in on the fun. We’re still on the hunt for volunteers to help out with set up/break down, judging, and scorekeeping. It’s a great way to get involved and make some new gym buds, even if you don’t want to compete. Email David [at] CrossFitSouthBrooklyn.com if you’re interested!
