An interview with (friend-of-CFNYC) Gillian Mounsey
NOTE: In place of Saturday’s WOD classes, there will instead be the Fight Gone Bad 6 Fundraiser from 9am-4pm. You can still join our team and participate on Saturday. If you want to participate, please first sign up for our team and fundraise at least a few dollars because this is a charity event (feel free to donate to yourself if you haven’t had a chance to fundraise amongst your friends and family). There’s no minimum fundraising requirement but we’d suggest $25 at the very least. In addition, you must sign up for the hour during which you’d like to participate. Priority will be given to those who are already signed up for a time slot, thanks.
If you need to know more about what Fight Gone Bad, the workout, entails, please watch this video.
If you’re new to CrossFit and are worried about if you’re ready to do FGB, don’t worry, we’ll offer various scalings on the weights: Men’s Rx’d: 75# barbells (on push press and sumo deadlift high pull), 20# med ball (on wallball). Women’s Rx’d: 55# barbells, 14# med ball. Further scaling: 45# barbells and 10# med ball. (In addition, due to the fact that the WOD is structured to be as many reps as possible, you can simply do fewer reps if you need to scale down the intensity.)
Also note that the 10am and noon Free Beginners’ Classes on Saturday are still as regularly scheduled.
On a completely different and totally awesome topic…
Smoke & Mirrors Collaborative presents POINT OF DEPARTURE Directed by Jonathan David Martin (Lincoln Center Theater’s WARHORSE), assistant directed by Katie Meister (Shakespeare in the Park’s ALLS WELL THAT ENDS WELL), and originally conceived with Zoey Martinson (Shakespeare in the Park’s ALLS WELL THAT ENDS WELL) and MacKenzie Meehan (Classic Stage Company’s DOUBLE FALSEHOOD) as the highly–anticipated inaugural production of this Brooklyn-based theater company. Performances begin Friday, September 16 and play through September 25, two weekends only, at Theater For The New City (155 1st Ave, New York, NY).
POINT OF DEPARTURE follows a series of extreme characters through the absurd landscape of a post 9/11 airport terminal. Hidden baggage fees and security pat-downs merely scratch the surface of the obstacles each passenger has to overcome, finally to depart to their chosen destination.
This highly physical, multimedia production mines the dark humor of today’s airport experience. POINT OF DEPARTURE peeks into the wonder and frustrations of taking flight, as the audience is taken on a joyride of high-energy choreography, stimulating projections, and broad physical comedy.
Tickets are $18 Adult and $15 Student/Senior with group discounts available, and can be purchased online here. For additional information on reservations and accommodations please email Smokemirrors.firstname.lastname@example.org.
