The Support Your Local Box Fundraiser is a CrossFit event for the benefit of CrossFit affiliates affected by COVID-19 around the globe. We will be doing the first workout on Monday April 6th. Learn more about this event and how you can support CrossFit NYC.
Strength: Scale the Single Leg Squats/Pistols by performing eccentrics to an object (chair, bench, bed, etc) and then standing with 2 legs (or 1 if able). Aim to increase the range of motion each set. Scale the bird dog plank with quadruped shoulder taps. The wall supported tibialis raises will burn – that’s the point!
Conditioning: This is a posterior chain (back side of body) dominant combination, team. During the Sprint Lunge Jumps be conscious of your knee position and do not allow it to drop in. If it is, focus on foot pressure and glute engagement to fight against it. You can scale the Plank Opposite Toe Touches by touching your shin or knee instead. Be conscious not to lose your midline/overextend during the Glute Bridge Hamstring Curls. Scale the movement by performing 20 Glute Bridge (no hamstring curl).
Upcoming Events and News:
Update as of 3/16/20: CrossFit NYC Will Temporarily Close Monday Evening at 8:00 PM
In accordance with the directive of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, CrossFit NYC is closing this evening at 8:00 PM and will remain closed as long as the governor’s mandate remains in effect.
We will extend your membership by the number of days that we remain closed. (If you have a specific question about your personal situation, you can email us at Desk28@CrossFitNYC.com or Desk67@CrossFitNYC.com, but please allow us up to 48 hours to respond.)
Since we opened our first location in 2006, we have never been closed for more than a single day. However this is a matter of both law and public safety. With the support of our members, we intend to reopen at the earliest possible date.
Tomorrow, we will begin publishing workouts on the website for members that can be done at home with minimal equipment. We believe that maintaining your fitness during this time should still be a priority. We would love to see you share your workout results with the CrossFit NYC community on the blog.
We are grateful to all our members during this difficult time, and we know that our survival as a small business will depend on you returning when this is over.
