Bring a friend to BrickYard!
Thursday October 6th is bring a friend day! Do you have trouble explaining to your non-CrossFit friends why it is you do what you do, or why you're so passionate about BrickYard? Is it difficult for you to convince them that CrossFit is not scary or impossible but fun and infinitely scale-able?

Member of the Month
Our member of the month for August is Jen Schaefer! She comes in at 5:45AM with a huge smile on her face ready to GO! Congrats! Check out her interview below!
How long have you been with us At CFBY? Do you remember your first workout? I started in July of 2014. I don’t remember exactly what the workout was, but I remember feeling humbled. I knew it’d be a while before I was an Rx regular at Brickyard. And it sure was.
How would you compare your previous lifestyle with the one that is today? This is a hard question because I’m always changing and challenging myself. I’ve been active in one form or another for most of my life. Right now at 44, though, I’m in the best shape of my life. Better than when I was running miles and miles each week. Better than when I was 20 and thought a fast metabolism could outpace poor nutrition. I take nothing with my health for granted now. I have a family history of a lot of things that have risk factors that can be lessened with good nutrition and regular, vigorous exercise so I want to do everything I can to be around as long as I can.
If you could design the perfect workout for yourself that would it be? All the things I’ve fought so hard at getting, even though I’m still not great at them: double unders, HSPU, squat cleans and squat snatches. That’s a terrible workout, though. Please don’t ever offer it.
What animal best represents you today? Elephant. Smart, steady, family centered, and strong.
If you could pick the perfect song to listen during the best workout of your life what would it be? Anything from the Foo Fighters or Cypress Hill. You can get up a mean sweat to the Hip Hop BBQ channel!
If you were to summarize your lifestyle in 5 words or less, how would it go? Family, Challenge, Change, Dedication, Goofy
What advice do you have for anyone thinking about starting? Just start. We all just started at one point. You don’t have to be more fit or stronger or thinner or less out of breath or anything to start. You just have to start. You don’t grow unless you push outside of being comfortable.
