Selfless Loyalty has been the theme in all the comments about Pags.
Alhough we all knew he was the best athlete in the gym, we didn’t know how we knew because he carried a simple, quiet confidence. Finishing first, finishing fastest, getting his name on the whiteboard were secondary to the “experience” of Corps Fitness. In fact, to know Pags at CF is to know that the group efforts, where he could Selflessly commit his energy to a cause greater than himself, are what motivated him.
And whether Sunday Specials, Hero Weeks, Incentives, Holiday Workouts, or any other CF events, he was there, Loyal, and ready to go! Pags is a true CFer (video).

Incentive: Survive the Smoker sign up…spots are filling fast. Click on the Incentive link and read Pags’ last comment. This is not a pre/post test. This is one and done…can you survive? Nat kindly lent her rower…so we can have 2 people at each time slot now! Whoo hoo…let’s fill it up with some challenge seekers!
1) Kyle Pagerly Memorial Fund has been set up at the Berks County Sheriff: Corps Fitness will accept donations all week…starting with the JULY 4th WORKOUT at 7AM. Let’s make that a big workout and have a great showing to start off the week. A donation bucket will be by the Pags board (Friday 8th last day). CF will then make a mass donation to the fund.
2) JULY INCENTIVE: Survive the Smoker. Now you might be thinking, “That’s not for me” “I don’t know if I can survive 12 minutes of pain” “I’m not motivated to do it” “I’m not into the CF Incentives.” Here’s what you do. Click on the CF Incentive icon in the right frame. Scroll down and read PAGS’ last post ever from the day before he was shot. Guaranteed your ass will be signed up before the weekend is over…we’re here. He’s not.
3) Tomorrow, SUNDAY JULY 3…GRING”S MILL WORKOUT!
4) MONDAY JULY 4…7AM WORKOUT…begin donations to the Kyle Pagerly Fund…let’s start it off right!
Tragically, Pags was shot and killed Wednesday night while working with the Berks County Sheriff’s department.
Pags was a spirited CFer and an awesome human being! CF sends love and support to his family!
Just found out yesterday that his orders were bumped up so please help us wish Army Lt. Rich Blank as he departs for Ft Benning, GA for training. He’s been a great addition to the CF family over the past months but duty calls and much respect for putting on the uniform. For those that have not worked out with him he is pictured below doing wallballs. Good luck Blank and go motivate the troops!!!!!
