Get cookin’, go paleo
Introducing The Crossfit NYC Members’ Favorites Paleo Cookbook filled with recipes from YOU!
Crossfit NYC is collecting your favorite paleo recipes to publish our very own Members’ Favorites Cookbook.
We will be hosting a Recipe Submission Paleo Potluck on January 7, 2012 at 2pm in the new CFNYC space.
This event will be open to all members (whether you want to be featured in the cookbook, or not.) This will be a great opportunity to get a taste of some delicious paleo cooking, have a few drinks, and make new friends!
This event will also kick off our 3rd Annual CFNYC 30-Day Paleo Challenge.
We will be selecting from your best recipes to feature breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert categories. If you are interested in submitting a recipe (or two) please register the dish you would like to share by emailing Kelly@CrossfitNYC.com.

What’s on tap for Saturday’s High Noon Hero WOD as well as the regular Saturday WOD:
High Noon Hero WOD Week 3:
This week we will be doing “Brenton.” Bear Crawls, Broad Jumps, and Burpees (and a 20 LBS Vest if you have one). Don’t worry, the running will return. We figured we’d try out the new space, and being the innaugural WOD there, this saves us a little with equipment carry over.
First, though. What an awesome turnout these past two weeks. We had first-murphers and first timers. “Mr. Joshua” was even someone’s first post-elements WOD! Great work to each and everyone of you. Great work pushing yourselves and great work pushing everyone else. The energy in the room these past two weeks has only gotten better.
Now for some updates. We are currently looking into the Disposable Heroes Project and other NYC-based veterans’ charities for a way to raise money and use these Saturday WODs for some good. Suggestions are still more than welcome, so please keep the information coming. Also, please continue to send in your times so we can keep the digital leaderboard going. It will be a great way to track progress!
Finally, if there is a Hero WOD you want us to schedule for any reason, let us know, and we will do our best to get it on the schedule. Difficult non-official Hero WODs are welcome as well.
Below, please find some more information on Timothy Quinn Brenton and take it to heart as we hit this WOD hard Saturday.
Field Training Officer Timothy Quinn Brenton, 39, of the Seattle Police Department, was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting while on duty on October 31, 2009. He is survived by his wife Lisa, his son Quinn, and daughter Kayliegh.
See you Saturday at noon (at the new space)…
Sweat, Suffer, Honor, Remember, Repeat.
