Today is a scheduled rest/recovery day, but don’t worry! We are open 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 out of them.
Huge congrats to Pierre D. and Coach Ro, who are currently ranked 5th worldwide and 1st in the Northeast Division in the 40-44 age division of the CrossFit Team Series. Let’s show them some CFSBK love in the comments!
1. Fight Gone bad is just a couple of weeks away! So far we’ve raised over $1,200 for Brooklyn Community Foundation, but there’s still lots more work to be done! On Wednesday, we posted a guide to getting started, and yesterday we posted some fundraising tips. Giddy up!
2. Get out of pain, stay out of pain, strengthen your weaknesses, and improve mobility and movement patterns, all while getting stronger! An evening edition of Coach Keith’s popular Active Life Strength class starts October 15th, and registration opened last week. Check out Tuesday’s post for details!
3. Kristin Hoesl (aka KH, aka Cage) has teamed up with her longtime colleague Michele Rinaldi to open The Pilates Local, a beautiful, intimate Pilates studio in the heart of Union Square!
