Yes, Virginia, There Is a CrossFit in NYC…
and you should come train with us.
“I can‚Äôt stop thinking about CrossFit. Greg Glassman, the founder, has, since 2001, been building a video-driven online fitness empire. Is empire the word? It‚Äôs more like a ministry. A tyranny. With bellowing and dogmatic seminars and psych-up speeches that make you sit like a sheep and think you finally understand the secret of existence….”–“Our Warm-Up Is Your Workout,” Virginia Heffernan, New York Times
Ms. Heffernan, who co-wrote one of my favorite comedic books in years, seriously should come check us out. Let her know in the comments of her blog post why she needs to try CrossFit with us, why dontcha? I already left my own comment, though it’s currently pending because NYT moderates their comments.
“Fight Gone Bad!”
Three rounds of:
Wall-ball, 20 pound ball, 10 ft target (Reps)
Sumo deadlift high-pull, 75 pounds (Reps)
Box Jump, 20″ box (Reps)
Push-press, 75 pounds (Reps)
In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of “rotate”, the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
Add your points and post them to comments.
