As we approach the holiday weekend we want to remind everyone about the importance of staying present.  It’s so easy to get swept up in how busy and hectic the holidays have become.  Take some time to enjoy the loved ones around you.  And don’t forget… Come on in for some great holiday themed workouts with our CFML team! 

We’re starting the week off with a big one: “8 Crazy Nights” to celebrate the start of Hanukkah.  On Friday we’re looking forward to “The 12 Days” workout.  Saturday we have a cardio based partner workout before the celebrations begin.  No classes on Sunday and Monday (open gym is available). 

Thank you to all who are participating in our 2023 equipment upgrade pool. Voting ends December 23rd!
