Eating your lungs out while getting leaner
Pushing to the limit

Are injuries gifts?
Exercise: Do we really need more incentive?

Happy birthday to Max, who is both a member of CFNYC and recently Level 1 certed. He’s been getting his feet wet with coaching out at CFBK and here he puts his crossfit strength to good use:

    @ albany, longest drive ever. I hate west side uptown traffic.
    Got here hours ago, just got back form dinner. So there are like 240 competitors out here, tomorrow is going to be insane.
    Got to say hi and wish luck to some cool people today.
    Brian G. from Gotham is looking strong and way lean, since last time I saw him.
    Zach Singer, is up here and pretty psyched.
    Crossfit Harlem is rolling deep.
    Got to see Melissa Byers in person.
    Saw Jocylen Secondi and Lauren Plumey from CT.
    Still on the lookout for my fav Heather Keenan
    Saw Jacinto, we went to dinner and he had a huge steak and is ready to go.(we also had a sambuca for good luck)
    Met a couple of strangers that don’t even have affiliates
    that look super strong.
    Anyway there is a ton of people out here. Its quite the experience to see all this Crossfit, all in just one place. You can definitely feel the insyncness of community and competition here at the qualifiers, it’s so cool.
    but where is Robzilla!?!?
