The Shutdown, Week 1

We’re as bummed as you to have to stay out of the gym for two weeks, but stay positive! It could always be worse, and as we’ve been saying, FITNESS ISN’T CANCELLED!

The gym is closed & the weather is gloomy, but you can’t control that. If fact, if you think about it, you have very little control of anything! However, the few things you DO have control over can mean everything, when given the right amount of focus. Here is the comprehensive list of everything that is 100% within your control:

  1. Your thoughts
  2. Your actions

Stay positive, and look for the opportunities in every situation. The obstacle IS the way! Gym closed? Here’s a chance to become a better runner. Raining outside? Burpees in the living room (or, run in the rain!!). When you see the opportunity, instead of the obstacle, you become UNSTOPPABLE!

Of course, we’re still here for you and will continue providing massive support, accountability, and guidance. Here are a few things we have planned.

Home Workouts

We will now have 2 programming tracks to follow. The Home/Travel WOD program will have the backpack workouts we’ve been putting out. The CFK Power program will be strength + metcon style, and all you’ll need is a set of dumbbells.

Equipment Loan

We’ll loan out certain items, free of charge, for the next 2 weeks. An email outlining the details of this program will come out Sunday afternoon, so stay tuned. Pick-up will be from 1 pm – 3 pm on Monday, at each location. Priority will be first-come, first-served so if you’d like something, we recommend showing up at 1 pm!
