“Crossfit NYC and Josh, Thanks for the encouragement today. It was a great way to spend the afternoon. Per your request, I’ve attached a photograph of David Rodriguez and me. We were each other’s judges and it was David’s first WOD. He scored 90 reps, which is pretty remarkable considering he hadn’t ever done a burpee for time before. Thanks to the gym and his screaming I got 126. Best, Zander”
