Torch wasn't available, so...

Nonetheless, CrossFit NYC: The Black Box is still very proud to be featured in this month's Men's Fitness, on newsstands now. Here's a sneak peek:

Want to read the rest? Like I said, check your local newsstand!

And in other important news, for those of you Black Box members who go way back, you'll remember the fact that our head trainer and co-owner/co-founder Court Wing, RKC-certified kettlebell instructor, once "courted your favor" and asked you to help vote him into the Top 10 RKC-certified instructors of the entire country. We were a small gym back then, yet apparently a powerful one, as we managed to raise Court's ranking to the grand heights of #4 on that very list!

However, it seems we've had our backs turned for too long and Court's ranking has slipped lower than the Top Ten. So, please, dear loyal students of our very own supreme Court, please take a moment out of your busy schedule to offer your review of Court's abilities as a trainer (whether specifically on kettlebells, crossfit, or Z-Health for that matter). We appreciate it most highly!

In BBB news, due to some conflicts regarding the teaching schedule, it looks like the best time to schedule a Townhall Meeting regarding the closing of BBB is this Thursday at 9pm. Hopefully, that will work for most people. Anyone who is a current member of BBB is invited.
