From our Instagram account: “Congratulations to Ryan J. and Matt J. on their wedding this weekend! The guys decided to get together for their first date in part because they had both recently become interested in @crossfit. Their third date centered on cooking a paleo meal together. They’ve gone to a @crossfitaffiliates in every city they’ve ever visited and, after moving to Holland a year ago, are still going strong. They got married at @threesbrewing on Saturday but needed to get some wedding shots at the gym first” | Photo & words by Kate R.
This Week at CFSBK in Review
1. The Look, Feel, Perform Better Challenge is upon us! See that widget to the right of this post? All LFPB Challenge info can be found there. Signing up is easy! Buy in with $30 cash at the front desk and write your name on the big poster near the couches. Why should you sign up? Chas C., who participated in last year’s Challenge, says that one year later he has experienced “[a] significant loss of weight and boost in self-confidence.” The biggest change, Chas tells us, has been his diet: “While there’ve been ups and downs since the end of the challenge, I’ve successfully jettisoned french fries for good and am generally much more cognizant of the fact that a little fat (or salad dressing, or whatever) goes a long, long way!” He’ll be participating again this year!
3. On Tuesday, we shared Mauricio A.’s thoughts one year after placing 3rd in the 2016 LFPB Challenge. As Mo says, “For those thinking about participating – DO IT!”
4. We love dogs at CFSBK, which is why we’re doing another Dogs of CFSBK calendar for 2017! 100% of the proceeds go to PupStarz Rescue, a foster rescue started by our own Robyn O. Both the desk calendar and wall calendar are available for a cash donation of $30-60. You can place your order by filling out this online form: http://bit.ly/cfsbkdogs. Pre-paying at the front desk will guarantee your copy. Orders will be taken until Christmas day. E-mail Bree P. at breebree [at] mindspring.com for any questions.
7. Finally, our holiday schedule kicks in tomorrow. The full rundown of classes and cancellations can be found at the top of the Class Schedule page.
