New addition :-)
The latest arrival for MaD (Matt and Donna) CrossFit is a 15 pound olympic training bar. This will be great for use by those who are not ready to move straight onto a standard 45 pound bar. We tried to get Simons Rock and the Y in Pittsfield to get some but they were not up for it, preferring instead to spend thousands of $ on "Cardio machines", rather that less than $150 on a barbell. So don't be surprised to see Donna carrying our new baby around soon.
