Halloween Throwdown Series Is Here!

As a gym we are participating in the Halloween Throwdown Series. Saturday morning classes will be participating in the workout/wod written for this occasion. This looks to be a lot of fun and we already have several people registered to participate during this next week.

The cost is 7.00 and you need to register online if you would like to have your times recorded so you can compare yourself to your fellow CFC athletes and those on the web. Take a look and register and then let me know so I can enter you into our CFC Throwdown pool to see if you win. If you register on the website and participate you will be entered into a Halloween Throwdown drawing for a 30.00 gift card for dinner (or whatever)!

You will also have the opportunity to complete the wod on Sunday and at least one class session during the week so there is plenty of time to get it done.

Let’s have some fun and some competition! This is a great time to test your fitness and skills to see how well you are doing as an athlete and to see if all you hard efforts are paying off. Let’s go!

LOOK IN THE COMMENTS FOR THE ACTUAL WOD WE WILL BE DOING!
