Ashley’s Send Off WOD: 

As many of you know Ashley will be leaving us as she and her husband are heading to the Sunny West Coast for the next chapter in their lives.  A few of our CFK family requested to use the gym for a send off WOD for Ashley.  So if you would like to wish Ashley a bon voyage, please join us tomorrow at 8 p.m. for a WOD and a few toasts to Ashley.  We are very sad that she is leaving us, but know the future will hold many wonderful adventures and blessings for them both.

The CFK PNL Challenge is a five week challenge designed to help give you the tools to establish a healthier life style.  This is not a diet, but rather a path to helping you identify and implement better eating habits and as a result improve your overall well being with the added benefit of enhancing performance in the gym.  The challenge does not focus solely on nutrition, but also encourages better sleep and recovery habits, stress reduction, as well as healthy supplementation.  We often have members who are looking to make positive changes in their lives, but at a loss as to where to start.  The challenge is designed to help you get started and give you the tools to assess and identify areas in your life that may need improvement, while at the same time holding each other accountable in a fun and friendly competition. We have had so many great success stories over the years with each challenge we have completed.  So if you have been struggling with how to achieve your goals not just in the gym but in your daily lives, I encourage you to sign up and take the first step.
