400 Fans Dance!

Let me assure you our coaching and programming are much better than the quality of the audio, video and editing of this video, but we sure had fun making it! Thanks to Kenley, Carlos, Jon and Dan (and ROHAN the DJ!) for staying late last night to film our dance celebrating 400 Facebook fans. If you haven't already liked the CFM Facebook Page, please do so. We're shooting for 500 fans by Saturday, so please share our page and encourage your friends to like it too!!!


Matt took his abs on vacation to Guatemala last month.

If you know your 1 rep max, do set 1 at 60%, set 2 at 65%, set 3 at 70%
B. 5 rds:
Max rep pull ups
One resisted run

Partner up on Part B. You and your partner will each do a set of max pull ups, then Partner 1 will run while Partner 2 holds the band/resists them, then Partner 2 runs while Partner 1 resists. Your score is the total amount of pull ups you do over five rounds.
