SEND ME YOUR HEADSHOTS! To help with tracking membership through MINDBODY Online, I am requesting that all current members (and Elements students) send me a headshot photo of themselves to my email (allison AT crossfitnyc DOT com) so that I may upload it to our system. Please keep the photo size relatively small and a clear closeup of your face. If you don’t have one, just ask me to take your photo the next time you see me at the gym.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: While we have been strongly encouraging everyone to sign up in advance on MINDBODY Online before coming to any of the WOD classes (and we appreciate those of you who have been doing so!), from here forward we are enforcing a strict policy with regard to pre-class online sign-up. You must sign up with MINDBODY Online before coming to class in order to have a guaranteed spot in that class. If you arrive without having signed up and the class is full, you will have to attend another class that day instead. Evening classes tend to fill up more than morning or lunchtime do, but no matter which class it is, if it’s full and you haven’t pre-registered online, we’ll have to turn you away for that class. If you sign up online and do not show, your punishment will be burpees. To avoid burpee hell, just cancel your planned visit through MINDBODY Online once you realize you cannot make it to any class you’ve signed up for. If you have questions about how to use MINDBODY Online, please voice them in the comments.
To further facilitate check-in on arrival to class, please be sure to sign in to the sign-in book on the front desk with first and last name upon arrival to the gym. Your instructor needs to know who has arrived of those who are signed up online and your physical sign-in makes it easier for him/her to keep track. Thank you!

Gawker sez: “I have met some people who do CrossFit, and they are scarily in shape and also not at all fun to be around.” (Obviously they’ve never been to a free intro class.)
