Attention — Judges Needed!

Hi Ben,
We are still in need of judges for our Nor’Easter Masters event at ReebokCF1 Sat June 29 and Sun June 30th.

One year of CF experience required, but they don’t need to be level one.  We will pay cash (prob $100 for Saturday and a little less for the shorter day on Sunday), they’ll get free food and a shirt.  The link to register is here:

Thanks for helping out however you can!


  1. Braatz

    From the Bad Timing file… ReebokCF1 just picked the wrong day to ask for something.

    Kidding. Sort of.

  2. Hey FUEL FOR FIRE Fans!

    GOOD NEWS: The killer new version of our Fuel Packs — the ones that will not require any refrigeration– are almost here! Same clean ingredients, same 10 grams of protein, same great taste–but now you will be able to take Fuel For Fire anywhere without having to keep it cold. You can leave one in your gym bag, forget its there (who would do that??) and find it a month later, and it will still be just as yummy. Cool, right??

    The sadder news is that the last of the refrigerated Fuel Packs were delivered to CFNE and have already sold out. On the bright side, this means more fridge space for CFNE’s second favorite post-WOD option (Beer).

    The new Fuel Packs will be available MID-JULY at CFNE and affiliates around the country. Sweet Potato Apple, Banana Cocoa and Apple Berry are the first 3 flavors we’ll be rolling out. For you Tropical fans, don’t fret– that’s in the works too. We’ll have a fun tasting event at CFNE when the new packs are in, and maybe bring back that spicy Fuel For Fire team WOD that Ben cooked up.

    We can’t thank you all enough for your incredible support as FFF continues to grow. We are so grateful to have our roots in the amazing CFNE Community, and appreciate all that you have done to help us get FFF off the ground. Please keep sharing your ideas and feedback with us–it means more than you can imagine. Email me at if you have any questions.


    Cindy, Rob and the FFF Team

      Congrats Cindy and Rob! I know this is a big step for you guys. can’t wait for the new packs

    • YES!!!! so happy for your guys.

  3. Just saw MDV’s post and news!!!

    MDV, congratulations man. In my short time here I have come to think of you as an anchor, synonymous with CFNE to me. While it won’t be the same without you, Reebok will be that much better for having you. What I do know about you is that you are deep. You think deep, write deep, and dig deep. Don’t look back, but please come back often.

    Felt pretty good today, other than being the lowest rung on the evolutionary ladder.

  9. Snatch: 85#
    C&J: 125#

    Oof. Haven’t done these in awhile and I could tell.

  10. Andy L

    Snatch: 95
    C & J: 140

    Oh and I PR’d some consecutive DU’s. Maybe around 20… I don’t know b/c I lost the ability to count when I’m actually hitting the du’s. progress is progress!

  11. Rick W.

    Snatch: 115#
    C&J: 155#

    Didn’t get all the reps but I’m ok with that.

    C&J – 115# (worked up to 145#, hit a few at 155#)

    Went light today. Rachel gave great tips…thanks! Form felt solid, and most importantly, shoulder and wrist felt great. Slowly climbing back.

  13. Annmarie

    Snatch: 40#, I haven’t increased the weight since my form has yet to improve

  25. Yeah Kath! One of our Awesome 8:30 anchors.

    Run day – needed to soak up some Vitamin D after all the rain: 1 mi buy in at a med pace + tabata hill sprints + 1 mi cash out at an easy pace.

  26. Big Mike

    Snatch: 105#…squat felt great today…watched a little EC and Gilson Snatch tutorial last night, in the basement, on my iPad, in the dark…I know…creepy but very helpful

    C&J: 155# had been locking in at 135 the last few times on this and decided I needed to grow a set. Jumped to 175 on the last round and they felt VERY light today. Flew the whole team in to meet with me (yes I make them come to me) and I walked in all jacked up and shit. Killing it today…love WWW’s

  27. marissa

    • Melinda

      Snatch: 85#
      C&J 110#

      Good idea to go lighter on snatch today Ashley, much better form.

      • Melinda

        Since everyone calls me Marissa anyway, figured I may as well post under her name too. Oops.

      • Laura c

        Yeah… 85# is a pretty light snatch:)! You are strong girl!!

  28. Heather V.

  31. You guys made the header of the Kronicle! Check it out and thanks for supporting Kill Cliff!

  32. ss: 40# c&J 60#

  33. MDV-

    Congratulations! I wish you the best on your new adventure. Your departure is a tremendous loss for CFNE and you will be sorely missed. Shortly after starting CFNE, I had heard the rumors – people referring to you as the “double under master.” Thus, I thought why not learn from the best, and signed up for a half hour session. One of the first things you said to me was “Relax Amie, do I scare you?” My response, “Nope, that’s just me, ball of nerves”. Point being you acknowledged my anxiety immediately, addressed it and made me feel at ease. Your ability to recognize people’s strengths and weaknesses makes you good at what you do. Your ability to take a movement, break it down and explain it so that it is relatable to a particular person based off of their strengths and weaknesses makes you GREAT! Congratulations again on this exciting next step for you. Hope you soar with the stars.

    Hopefully I’ll have double unders next time we meet.

  34. Sara C

    Snatch: 55#
    C&J: 75#

  35. Curly Max: 100 burpees for time (first time) 7:59

  39. Snatch: 45# BUT , it felt good today
    C and J: 70# only can do reg. jerk

  40. 100/135

  41. Maureen B.


  42. Cheryl


  43. Megan B

    85×5 sets, 90×2 sets / 105

    The snatches felt great today – like I could have easily put up a lot more weight (still working under the % called for). C&J not so good – lots of coming forward on my toes on the cleans. Room for improvement!
