December 2012 Update

Hey Folks,

We had a very busy summer coaching and training, thanks to all who came to train with us from distant points, and all the locals who kept it real.

Things have slowed down a bit after Labor Day, which is to be expected, but we are still here, and still training hard, and we have a goodly contingent of dedicated local CF'ers who are unwilling to be held by the lack of amenities at our gym (you know, those basic creature comforts like insulation or heating!) training through this winter season.

We are pleased  to announce that we are now scheduling all of our classes via Mind Body Online; please click here to view our class schedule and to reserve your training sessions.

And, we are also pleased to annoounce that we will be signing up as a Mind Body Online Wellness Program partner, and will be offering discounted packages for MBO employess, several of whom are already athletes at our box.

Have a happy and safe holiday season. Peace on Earth, Good Will To All

Wook Smart. Play Hard. Eat Good Good

Garage Gym - Redux

We have been hard at work over the past few weeks renovating and expanding The Garage Gym. Many thanks again to Kyle for his dedicated work, as well as Leni and everyone else who pitched in.

We have opened the space to include the entire structure, and have cathedralized the ceiling to create two full height areas, allowing for unobstrucuted overhead work; pressing, rope climbs, rings work...no problem...
We installed our pull-up structure inside (salvaged from the former CrossFit NYC Black Box - Brooklyn, many thanks to Cort and crew, this is some vintage CrossFit welding and machining work, and was one of the first custom made pull rigs for one of the first CrossFit affiliate), as well as mokey bars for the kids (and grown-ups too). We now have room for more athletes to train, so come on down and train with us in our newly expanded gym!

Still here

Been a couple weeks since our last post. Just wanted to let everyone know we are still going hard through the winter.

I will post some pictures of the improved space because the work that we put in (mostly Ben and his family) looks incredible. More room for pressing, more pull up bars, more awesomeness.

It's never too late to start fulfilling those New Years resolutions. Whether it be losing 10 pounds, running a triathlon or getting a double body weight back squat, CrossFit will get you there.

Capoeira Class at Evolution Fitness

We are pleased to continue our training at Evolution Fitness in 2012 with our weekly Capoeira class. Class meets every Saturday from 11am to 1pm. The first 30 minutes is Capoeria Kids (ages 5 to 15) and then adults from 11:30 to 1pm . We provide a play area and activities for the kids to hang out while the adults train, so families can attend together.

For those unfamiliar with the art, Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial dance form that blends music, dance, song, acrobatics, folklore, tradition, and philosophy in an awe inspiring ritual practice. The training is challenging and fun, and can help to cultivate not only peak physical conditioning, but a well-rounded athleticism, and a benefits that go beyond the merely physical. And capoeira training can accommodate people of all skill levels, so beginners are welcome, as are the avid capoeiristas.

So if you are looking for a new challenge, or something fun and different for the kids, for the spouse, for the family, or for yourself, please come play capoeira with us. Classes resume this Saturday, January 7th, at Evolution Fitness in Southampton. We hope to see you there.

Please call or email with any questions. Thanks.

Salve Capoeira! Axe!
