This workout begins with the athlete standing on the floor under the pull-up bar. After the call of “3, 2, 1… go,” the athlete may jump up and perform toes-to-bars. After 8 reps are complete, the athlete will move to the dumbbell for hang clean and jerks. The athlete must complete 5 clean and jerks on one arm, then 5 on the other arm. He or she will then move to the rower and pull 14 calories (12 for women). The monitor must read 14 calories (12 for women) before the athlete can unstrap and move to the pull-up bar for the next round.

The athlete’s score will be the total number of repetitions completed within the 20-minute time cap. Each calorie completed on the row will be equal to 1 rep.



The CrossFit Open & Friday Night Lights

By: 0

OK kids! The 2018 CrossFit Open is upon us…

If you haven’t signed up yet, do it now. Do it…do it!

Here’s the link:

For those new to The Open, here’s what it means:

1) CrossFit HQ announces a workout on Thursday night, 8PM EST for 5 weeks straight
2) We all have until the following Monday night at 8:00PM to complete the workout and submit our scores online or vie the downloadable app (the workouts will be Rx and Scaled)
3) CFK will have The Open workouts programmed as the WOD on every Friday for the duration of those 5 weeks. If you can’t do the workout on Friday, not a problem! We are happy to accommodate you doing the workout when you can before Monday 8:00PM
4) Remember that these workouts are judged, so be prepared to hit the movement standards, and to help your athletes do the same!
5) We will be doing a “Friday Night Lights” tomorrow 2/23, as well as Friday 3/23, at CFK. This will run from 5PM to 8PM, at which time we will have open heats…so there will be no official classes on these nights! Just heats running back to back to back of the Open WOD. Feel free to bring some cocktails to sip on after you crush your workout and cheer on your community!

So sign up, and enjoy the start of the CrossFit “season”!

Let me know if you have any questions,

AMRAP Burpee Pull Ups



Gymnastics WOD

7 Minute AMRAP

5 Ring Dips

5 Pull-ups

*The goal is to work on a variation that is challenging for YOU. If you do ring dips unassisted try a deeper ring dip or scale it way up to a strict muscle-up. If you can do 5 push-ups on your toes scale up to a handstand push-up variation. Pull-ups should be scaled up: strict, chest to bar, or bar muscle-ups if proficient without a band. Toes to bar should be strict if able, but today is a good day to try t2b with a kip if you always scale to knees to elbows.

CFK Seminar, The Open, New Classes & KB Club

By: 0


Plenty to get into…so here we go

1) New Classes

Our first weekend with the new schedule was great! Coach Eric’s Prehab class on Saturday morning was awesome, and I’d say it is a must-attend for all CFK members, at least once! You will get smarter around taking care of your body for the sport of CrossFit. And a point of clarification on this class – it DOES NOT count toward your class count if you have a 3x per week membership, so do not let that limit your decision to go! We want this class available to as many people as possible – you can still get your 3 classes in and still come to this

Also, Coach Courtney’s 8:00AM was awesome today! It’s a great option to get moving on a Sunday morning and get on with your day…

2) Shoulder Love

Speaking of Prehab, we will be hosting a one hour talk on Saturday, March 3rd at 10:30AM. Dr. Sean Rockett will be joining us to present!Dr. Rockett is a well known, well respected Orthopedic Surgeon specializing in Sports Medicine. He practices right here in Massachusetts, and he’ll be talking to us about the best way to take care of your joints, especially your shoulders. Attendance will be $20 per person, as Dr. Rockett raises money for various local charities (we can actually pick the charity to whom he will donate).

He’s a CrossFit L1 certified trainer, and knows exactly what we do day in and day out. He’s a phenomenal resource, and a wealth of knowledge for all of us to access. Check out his blog at

Don’t miss this! Normal class times will be scheduled for that morning, and he will lecture beginning at 10:30AM

3) The Open

This CrossFit Open is here this week! You’ve heard us talking about it for the past few weeks, so it’s time to sign up! The Open is for everyone, all levels!
Go to to sign up.

We will be having a “Friday Night Lights” for 18.1 and 18.5, where we will celebrate the start and finish of the open together! More details to come this week, but plan on getting your 18.1 on this Friday, 2/23!

Fun, cocktails and hilarity will ensue…

4) KB Club

Below is the updated list of KB Club and Founder’s club.

And a huge, gigantic, mammoth, monster round of applause for the THIRD ever CFK Founder’s Club member….Laura MacEwan!!! Laura, what a phenomenal run. I’ll say it again…I’ve seen you do the Lumberjack 20 days before giving birth to Will, and you were right back at it in a blink of an eye afterward. Never have I heard an excuse come from your direction. You have worked so hard from the moment you joined CFK three years ago, and we couldn’t be happier for your success.

Thank you for your commitment, and for being such a great part of the CFK community!!

As always, congrats as well to ALL of the members on this list who are striving for their own goals. You guys rock…

See you this week,
