Gymnastics & Yoga updates

Our 4-class gymnastics series continues tonight at 8pm. Last week we learned headstand & handstand progressions, hollow position and splits/stretching. This class is full, so only those who RSVPed can attend. Yoga with Monica is on Thursday night at 8:15 pm. We have spare yoga mats if you need one!

Bring-a-Friend Days

Do you have a friend or family member who is dying to try CrossFit but needs a little push? Well next week they'll get that chance! We're hosting our first Bring-A-Friend days December 13, 14, & 15. So that Thurs, Fri & Sat, you're welcome to bring a friend with you to any class (including Thursday night yoga!). These classes won't be capped and your class limits don't apply that week IF YOU BRING A FRIEND (so you can earn a few extra visits that week if you bring a friend along to your Thurs, Fri and/or Sat class).
We do ask that you be the host/hostess for your friend that day, so a) you have to join them for the class they attend and b) you can only bring one friend per class. Got two friends who want to visit on Thursday? Well then you get to do TWO CLASSES & TWO WODS that day!
The WODs on these days are scalable/doable for all levels. On Thurs & Fri, we'll do partner WODs so you can work out with your friend. Saturday's WOD is a four-person team workout.
BUSY DAY SATURDAY! This Saturday CFM teams will compete again at the Atlanta Affiliate League Invitational. Make the trip up to CFHD to see Arielle, Dave, Ellen, Carlos, Brianne and Tirzah compete in the morning's Mixed division, and at 12:30 pm, cheer on the Elite team of Krystol, Shay, Austin and Matt C. Good luck!
Saturday is also the Atlanta Santa Speedo Run, a fun run which goes right past CFM's front door. Come join us from 2 to 3pm to cheer on the runners outside the gym. And don't miss the CFM holiday party that night in the box at 7pm!
