He’s no master, but this guy
could probably be yours for not too much.
It’s a little hard to find the entrance to the building, so be prepared to call from the street (347.533.2439) to ask someone to come down and show you. The box was pretty new when we visited, with just the basics as far as equipment goes. The people were great, and there were plenty of fellow WOD Masters. Head Coach Darren Taylor has an impressive range of experience including serving as trainer for the Brooklyn Borough President and the Grammy winning Award Rap Group, Salt N Pepa. If you are lucky, WODs include racing through the building’s hallways and stairs. Definitely different than Texas. Oh, and they have awesome T-shirts.
