Overdue to check-in on a few things…so here we go
1) CFK Spring BBQ
Now that we are settling into the new CFK (more on that below), and since this winter has been LONG, we will be doing a CFK Grand (re)Opening BBQ on Saturday 5/5! FB event and details will be coming out, but we’re getting it on the calendar NOW. Time to celebrate the new space and the end of winter…
2) New Kells Building
We are loving the new space, and hope you are too! Our first order of brand new Rogue gear has arrived (goodbye Ghettoropes), and as previously mentioned, more will be coming in the coming months. Thank you all for bearing with us through this big change for our community and business! There are plenty more tweaks to make and much more to do to the space, but it already feels just like home…so thanks to all of YOU for making it so.
We will continue to figure out our running routes as the weather gets better, and will settle on the best ones. For now, the Bay and Chestnut routes have both worked, with the caveat of being mindful of traffic. We are playing around with another idea or two, but for now these work.
Also, the gym temperature has come up with a few folks. Please understand that for every person that is “too hot”, there is a person in the same class that is “too cold”…this happens all the time, and we do hear you. And while we will be tweaking the thermostats for optimal temps, the bigger picture is that a better place to focus attention is on the workout itself 🙂
There are many different temperature preferences in the gym….and it will not be perfect for all. So manage your layers accordingly (add or subtract), and have a great workout. There have been a couple of folks who have taken it upon themselves to actually change the thermostat….this is a no go, guys. Can’t happen – so please either manage your layers, or discuss with your coach if necessary.
3) The CrossFit Open
It has been an awesome Open so far! Pr’s, firsts all-around, muscle ups….such a blast to watch. We will be doing our final Friday Night Lights this Friday!! Wonder if we’ll see some thrusters and C2B??? Gonna be a doozy either way! We hope to see you on Friday…
4) KB Club and Founder’s Club
Great February for both of these groups!!! For the new CFK members, the CFK Kettlebell Club is awarded to those members who attend 15 classes per month for one consecutive year. Those who achieve this milestone receive their own customized CFK KB! The next level from here is Founder’s Club, with KB Club being a prerequisite, followed by 1 year straight of TWENTY classes per month.
For this month we have….
KB Club – Jen Jackson! Legitimate CFK OG (member #3), Jenny has been a CFK staple since we opened our doors. We have seen her crush boundaries over the past three years, doing things we knew that she could do, even if she wasn’t sure :-). From getting her pull-ups and Rx’ing WODs in the beginning, to now running marathons, Jen has evolved immensely as an athlete. And through her time and dedication with us, she and her family have become our family.
KB Club – Carmen Brzek! We are lucky enough to have a gym full of people who absolutely work their tails off, so it’s difficult to give any superlatives here…yet when you consider Carmen, she has to be in the conversation for ONE of the hardest workers in the gym. Before class, after class, double sessions, nutrition programs, Oly. Dedication doesn’t quite cover it. You impress us every day, Carmen! Congratulations on all of your progress…and you’re just getting started.
Founder’s Club – Jen Maser! Another CFK mainstay, Jen is such a huge part of this community. Whether it’s crushing it with the 9:30 crew, doing beach/seltzer wods in the summer, throwing the barbell around or simply helping to welcome new members, Jen has really helped make CFK a better place. Her commitment to CrossFit and to this community is beyond question, and we are so appreciative to have her in our lives. Thank you, Jen, for all that you bring to the CFK family…
Join me in congratulating these three on their achievements!
AND…below is the list for those coming up on their own awards. Congrats everyone!
All for now,
Jen Maser (Founder’s Club)
Shorty Spice (Founder’s Club)
Kimmy Tailspin (Founder’s Club)
Lynn (Founder’s Club)
