By | Uncategorized | 6 Comments

Welcome to Dale, Jared, John H, Lucinda, Mary Anne, Scott D and Tiffany!


Paleo Night

Thanks to everyone who joined us for Paleo Night last night at Urban Pl8. Our party of 14 enjoyed a delicious dinner: Summer heirloom tomato salad with avocado, red onion, green olives, basil, and garlic vinaigrette, Puerto Rican beef stuffed roasted red bell pepper with basil oil, grilled hangar steak with grilled asparagus, tomatoes, and Vidalia onion with sweet pepper relish, and Paleo chocolate pudding.
Paleo night is held the last Tuesday of every month, so mark your calendars now to join the CFM crew for the next one on July 31st!

July 4th Holiday Schedule

CFM will be closed on Wednesday, July 4th. The 6 and 7 am classes will also be cancelled on Thursday, July 5th. All other classes next week will be held as regularly scheduled.
We'll post a no-equipment-needed WOD on Tuesday in case you wish to get moving on your own on the 4th.

Athlete Profile - Drew Vabulas AKA VABS

Hometown: I call Atlanta home now.
Age: 30
Occupation: Jack of all trades at IBIS Inc.

WOD... what was it, and how did it feel?
First WOD was 500 air squats for time with SealFit. Freaked me out, couldn't workout for 3 days after.
What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting CF (before/after)? I have seen a lot of changes. I was in the best shape of my life up until surgery. And now I am seeing more size being put on (muscle).
What sort of changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on something like CrossFit that were totally unexpected? Meeting some great friends, really understanding how to feed yourself and what you put in your body really effects your attitude, your looks, and how you feel.
