  • Hey guys, I’m the one hosting the DU contest that is linked above! It’s gonna be super fun. Reebok 5th Ave has been promoting the hell out of the event for me, don’t let the Black Box be outnumbered! The competition is 3 minute AMRAP DU, and there are flyers by all of the sign-in computers. Coach Heidi and Coach Kyle have donated an hour private session as prizes, and there are Rx custom ropes up for grabs, Pr wristwraps, Yankees tickets, our very own Jessica Steiert donated one of her sterling silver kettlebell necklaces that she designed, and so much more!! Prizes, fun, and a good cause!! Let’s do it CFNYC!!
