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

The CrossFit Total

The CrossFit Total is the sum of the best of three attempts at the squat, the press, and the deadlift, the three most effective lifts in existence for developing and testing functional strength. Done correctly, the CrossFit Total (CFT) is perhaps our best tool for telling us the things we need to know about a very important aspect of our training. Mark Rippetoe outlines why we do the CFT, the rules for the CFT, and the standards for each lift... Click here to read more: CrossFit Total "The CrossFit Journal" by Mark Rippetoe
