Speed on Saturday: The Seminar

We made it official. Again Faster hosted our first group workout, and we had a great time.

Me, Sam, Dave, Patrick, and Joe did a brutal takeoff on Murph, combining 200m sprints, Beck's Burpees, and more than a few pullups, pushups, and squats.

We were blessed with a ton of quality coaching from Neal Thompson and EC Synkowski of Crossfit Boston, and Manla Nkosi and Mathea Levine of Kettlebell Boston. Neal and EC are both Crossfit-certified instructors, and Manla is powered by Pavel, as an RKC-certified instructor and Combat Applications Specialist.

Thanks to Neal and EC for encouraging us through, and to Manla and Mathea for the great cool-down. All of these folks know exactly what they're doing, and continue to do wonderful things for the Crossfit Community in the Northeast.

Dave came out on his birthday, and even managed to do some projectile vomiting halfway through the workout. Then he just kept going. Puke and rally, baby!

The Jamaica Pond sun was absolutely blistering, with the temperature topping 82 degrees. We had a hell of a workout, and gave the public a little taste of Again Faster.

Thanks to everybody for coming out. (L to R): Brad Nelson of Advocare, EC Synkowski and Neal Thompson of Crossfit Boston, Me and Sammy, Patrick and Dave, Manla Nkosi and Mathea Levine of Kettlebell Boston, and Walter of YMAA Kung Fu.

We're going to be getting together all summer, to workout hard and to let the public know about Again Faster's mission of delivering top-flight fitness information to the world.

If you're in the area, come out for a workout. We'd love to have you.

Go faster!

very good workout- dropped to 5 beck's burpees after the first round (EC is right- they are the spawn of satan)
completed the 20 rounds as posted and finished in 45:07 slightly dizzy, slightly nauseous, but I had a great time!
