Upcoming CFM Events

Saturday, August 6th: 9am-12 noon.
As an annual CFM tradition, we will be doing the 31Heroes this weekend Saturday morning.

On August 6th, 2011, 31 of America’s bravest warriors gave their lives in defense of our freedom. These men were sons, brothers, husbands, fathers, and friends. 31Heroes.org was created as a effort to raise funds for the families of these fallen warriors, and has since then grown in purpose. Providing funds to families nationwide who have lost loved ones overseas, and providing assistance to those returning from duty with disabilities, we are honored to be able to associate with such a cause.

To learn more about 31Heroes.org and to donate to the CFM Team, click HERE: 31Heroes WOD Event

Friday, August 12th: 7-8pm. Lurong Nutrition & Fitness Championship Challenge Information Meeting.

Thursday, August 25th: Bring-A-Friend Day. All levels beginner friendly partner WOD.
