Ok kids…some good stuff coming up. Right to it:

1) Kells Gear

Remember that the absolute cutoff to order your CFK swag is this Thursday, November 16th! The order will be placed first thing on Friday morning, so if you interested please enter your order here:

There was an initial issue with the the link that is fixed now, so you are good to go. There will be no extras ordered, so if you are a member, owner, coach, friend, supporter or watcher of CFK and you want some gear, you need to use this link.


2) Painting!

Due to a utility snafuuuuuuuu, we had to postpone the Paint Party at the new space. It has now been moved to THIS SATURDAY, November 18th. For all of you who volunteered, THANK YOU! And hopefully you can make it this weekend. And for anyone else who might now be able to make it, shoot me a note and let me know…we’d love to have you. Kickoff will be at noon on Saturday.


3) CrossFit Kells Bi-Annual Competition and Holiday Party

…is on the books!! Saturday, December 16th, we will be having our annual Holiday Party and Bi-Annual in-house competition.

There will be a new, fun twist to the comp this year, so stay tuned for details.

And as always, we will be having our Yankee Swap/Holiday/Festivus activities that evening. And thanks to our Shiny New CFK Event Coordination Club (aka Laura F and Lauren D), we’ll have some extra special treats to go along with the festivities (lord help us).

Mark your calendars!!!

CFK – you will notice that we will be posting Extra Work on some days. We have a number of athletes looking to work on weaknesses, or simply to get more work in during open gym. This Extra Work is merely a suggestion of something that you can do on an extra day.

The caveat as always: Listen to your body. This extra work is not a suggestion to overtrain – it is there for additional training if you would like and are ready for some. Additionally, if you need extra rest…REST! Recovery is just as important.
