THE STORY:

Each fall, my gym, CrossFit South Brooklyn (CFSBK), hosts a big fundraiser-slash-workout called "Fight Gone Bad." All proceeds this year go to the Brooklyn Community Foundation, a great organization that supports all sorts of causes: the Bushwick Housing Independence Project, the Brooklyn College Foundation, and the Brooklyn AIDS Task Force, to name a few. Last week, the board of Brooklyn Community Foundation was so excited about our fundraiser that it pledged $1 for every dollar we raise before Saturday.

Please give. Every little bit helps. In fact, I'd love just to have a lot of PEOPLE invested in this.

When a mixed-martial artist named BJ Penn did this CrossFit "benchmark" workout and was asked how it compared to a real fight, he said it was like a "fight gone bad" – hence the name. It consists of one minute at each of the five following movements:

  • Wallball Shots: 20 pound ball, 10 ft target. (going for # of reps)
  • Sumo Deadlift High-Pull: 75 pounds (going for # of reps)
  • Box Jump: 20" box (going for # of reps)
  • Push Press: 75 pounds (going for # of reps)
  • Row: calories (going for # of calories on a Concept 2 rowing machine)

After the last station, take one minute of rest. Then, repeat two more times. Woohoo!

CFSBK is much more than a gym; it's a fantastic community of wonderful people. It's the kind of place I can bring Linus and hand him off to friends while I do a quick workout. We have movie nights, a book club, a bus quiz club, and various events all year.
