December News and Events



Happy Holi-gainz! If you haven’t seen Darrick talk about Holi-gainz yet, go to the CFRE Facebook group to watch the vid.

Basically, this month, we want you to ENJOY life (and food!), and we want you to keep coming to the gym. For one, all those calories will help you get really strong, which is our goal this month. For two, exercise is the best stress-reliever. Let’s keep each other sane!!

November Athlete of the Month


Leo jumped right into CrossFit with no hesitation (even with no previous experience!), and it’s been awesome to watch him progress quickly in even the most complicated lifts. He shows up for class consistently week after week, and always comes with a smile and makes things so much fun. He even leads an ab workout after the 8am class every so often. Thanks for being part of the family, Leo!

What’s Happening Next Door??

There has been some chatter about what’s going on next door. Yes — we are looking into expanding into that space, in the hopes of moving offices, storage, retail, hangout, and personal training space next door. Just so everyone knows, nothing is official and we don’t have anything in writing, but we are conversing about it. We know things are getting tight in our current space and this will free up another 1,000 square feet if we make it happen. If and when it becomes official, we will release more info.

We appreciate you SO MUCH!!!
