Thanks to the entire CFM community for training with us over the years.
Whether you joined recently, or back in May 14th of 2012 when we opened the doors, THANK YOU for building the CFM community.
We've enjoyed coaching you, PR-ing with you, grinding through tough WODs together and just helping Midtown Atlanta become a fitter community.
