    More good news on the Men’s bathroom at 28th; 2nd shower is now online ready to use and third shower will be ready to go tomorrow. Women’s bathroom ceiling is being taped and sanded, with primary paint and possibly final paint done by the end of the week.

    • David

      There was no soap in the shower in the men’s bathroom yesterday, and no soap at all in the men’s bathroom today.

      • Hari Singh

        We’ll take care of that ASAP.

    • Aaron Segal

      Are there towels available at 28th?

      • Hari Singh

        Yes, at the Front Desk. They are free through the end of July.

  • David Stogsdill

    5:45 WOD
    A: 115, 125, 135, 145#
    B: 10 PP into the round of 18 — PushPress @ 85# and DU’s

  • Jim S

    A: 4×2 x135
    B: Push press at 75lbs. Finished 5 rounds plus 18 push press plus 1, yes 1, double under. I should have done 85lbs. I don’t do maths so good.

  • Jana B.

    3k row
    A: 93-103-113-103 (L shoulder doing something wonky)
    B: 5 rounds +59 2x single-unders, 63#. Again, L shoulder feeling really unstable for some reason.

  • MR

    Music (or lack there of). Are there any plans in place to have speakers/music installed at the 28th st location? I feel lately there has been no music to help push thru the WODS. I have been to a Florida and New England box, and they blast music during the WODS, which really seemed bring everyone together and push hard.

    • Hari Singh

      We have plans, but it is not an immediate priority. Given the nature of our space, with multiple WOD’s at different points at any given moment, it is not practical to have music blasting from one end of the box to another. We are looking at some sort of zoned music system, but again, it will likely be the last thing we get to.

  • Albert Insogna

    A: 135,155,175,185 (PR).
    B: 95#, got to round of 18 + 16 DU.
