He even dropped off a sample medium box to us, so check it out up front near the check-in computer to get an idea of what your order might include.

November Food Drive

Please donate to our food drive this month... we've started with two barrels, but I think we can fill at least FIVE! Courtney had the fabulous idea for all the Coaches and Instructor Training Program members to do a burpee for every can we get donated.
ONE BURPEE FOR EVERY CAN/BOX/ITEM. I said, "Courtney, that seems like an awfully obvious gimmick, but let's go with it!"***
***This conversation may or may not have been modified... Courtney actually volunteered LIS to do all the burpees, and Lis promptly recruited some help. So there you have it, folks...Your Coaches & ITP team will do LOTS of burpees this month, if you wish.

Glow Stick WOD ROCKED THE HOUSE!

October showers...

WE! HAVE! SHOWERS! Two of them, to be exact. We're still in the process of decorating the new bathrooms (don't be too blinded by the very white walls!) but they are fully functional and ready to use for your post-WOD rinse off! Please remember to bring your own towel and toiletries.

So fresh and so clean. Clean.

Glow Stick WOD

Join the 8pm class tonight for a Halloween WOD in the dark with GLOOOOOOW STICKS! This class will not be capped and guests of CFM students are welcome if they RSVP by emailing us... other visitors can also attend if they RSVP and pay the $25 drop-in fee.

Hoodies are in!

Just in time for the chilly weather, our CFM hoodies are here. If you pre-ordered, pick yours up off the counter under the pro shop shelves. If you didn't get your order in, you can still snag one for $45... we ordered a few extra in each size (S, M, L, XL) and can place another order if demand is high. On that note, we'll remind you...
How the Pro Shop works...
1. Pick out your item
2. Grab the clipboard hanging by the pro shop (or on top of the water cooler) and fill out your info: name, item (including size, variety, etc...for example: "XL yoda Tshirt" NOT just "tshirt") and how you'd like to pay (CC on file, cash or check... clip your check or cash behind the order sheet on the clipboard).
3. Enjoy your new purchase. Boom. That was easy.


Throughout November, we'll be collecting non-perishable food items for the Atlanta Food Bank. Please donate a few cans of grub to the cause. Let's fill these barrels and feed the HONGRY.

Partner WOD... athlete's choice of one*:
A. Partner 5k Row (split between partners however you choose)
B. Partner 400 cal AD (split up however you choose)
