NYC for FGB!
A big shout-out to the 65 (and counting!) wonderful people who’ve signed up so far to be a part of Team CrossFit NYC for Fight Gone Bad 6:
Akash B., Aimee L., Alex B., (Coach) Allison B., (Coach) Avery W., Breta K., Brian K., Cass X., Chadron E., Chris F., Christopher N., (Coach) Court, Courtney S., Dawn M., Devon C., Emerson H., Eric A., Eric L., Erica G., Francisco V., Jai B., James A., Jamie F., Jared K., Jason L., Jason W., (Coach) Jeffrey B., John D., John R., Jordan B., (Coach) Josh N., Josh R., K.J., Kent B., Laura O., Leonardo R., Maggie D., Michael W., Mike S., Patrice N., Paul B., Raquel B., Ray L., Richard R., Sam G., Sanjay A., Scott M., Seth P., Stephanie D., Stephanie K., Steve B., Steve L., Steve Slo, Tina A., + 10 “Anonymous Player”s (if you realize this is you, please add your name to your profile)
We are well on our way to being the team to enroll the most new team members by 5pm Pacific Standard Time on Monday July 25. If we in fact qualify as the team with the most members, I will win an iPad 2 as Team Captain. I will then give that iPad 2 away to one random participant in FGB6 at CFNYC who raises at least $150 and who had signed up by the deadline of July 25. So get on it!!
If you’re having doubts as to your athletic abilities and/or your fundraising abilities…forget your doubts and just sign up. The event is about our community coming together to work hard to achieve something important. As long as you train consistently and put the word out to friends and family that you’d like their support…you will find that on September 17th you will have a very memorable experience that you can be proud of. No more excuses, just do it.
P.S.: You don’t have to be a member of CFNYC to participate in FGB6 on our team. We already have a few people signed up who are friends of CFNYC members and want to join in the event. So if you are a member and have a friend who’s fit enough to handle FGB6, invite them to join our team if they wish. If you read this blog and are a NY-area crossfitter who trains on his/her own, feel free to participate on our team. Thanks!
