Lonnnngggg day at work. It’s cold. It’s windy. It’s dark. Sometimes, the car just naturally steers it’s way home and not to 5:30 or 6:45PM classes. And sometimes, WE just steer it that way home, because it’s just too dark, cold and windy. BUT, you know the feeling PMers…..that one before you go to bed at night….the one where if you could, you’d kick your own a$$ for skipping class. Sooooo….on that note Chris Kaag and Sara Shincovich Mider will eagerly look for your happy, smiling faces tonight. And you will be soooooo happy you steered your car to CF and not home. To heck with the cold, the dark and the wind!
Love,
Melissa 😀

Lunchtime!
But it’s windy. It’s cold. It seems so appealing to just stay in your work clothes, skip the sweat, eat a nice warm lunch and skip your NOON workout. Right 12PMers??? BUT, you know the feeling that evolves a little later in the day after you skipped. You know….the one where if you could kick your own a$$ you would because now you regret not going to class. So, on that note, Tim Shields will anxiously await your arrival for Noon class today! He looks forward to it!
Love,
Melissa 😀

It’s windy. It’s cold. There is a ton to do before the holidays are truly here. How will it ever get done?!?!
9:30AMers……you know the feeling. You just don’t have time to squeak in a 9:30AM class. BUT you know the feeling….the one that kicks in a little later in the day. The one where if you could, you’d kick your own a$$ for not taking just an hour for yourself to get to class.
And you know how badly Chris will miss seeing your faces. So on that note, Chris Kaag looks forward to catching you at class Wednesday at 9:30!
Love,
Melissa 😊

It’s windy. It’s cold. It’s really dark. Early AMers….you know how it goes. Alarm goes off and you re-think going to class on that dark, cold, windy morning; how easy it would be to stay in bed (not to mention warm!). BUT…..you also know what happens a little later in the morning….that feeling you get where if you could, you’d kick your own a$$ for not sucking it up and getting to class.
So on that note….see you all bright and early Wednesday!
Love,
Melissa 😊

Tim McD shared with Seth today what y’all did…..Seth’s response (more or less😊): “that’s (bleep) awesome! And tell everyone I really appreciate it!”

Way to go all!!! Join us to honor and support Corporal Seth Kelly as he recovers from gun shot wounds suffered in the line of duty early November. This is a workout open to all-abilities. You do not need to be a member of Corps Fitness to participate.
We will be collecting funds to purchase and provide life-saving tourniquets to local law enforcement departments in Corporal Kelly’s name. Please consider donating to this life-saving cause and in support of Corporal Kelly, his family, all first responders and our own Tim and Emily McDonough. Monetary donations will be collected up through 12/15/17.

What else can be said…..but to all who came out this morning to honor Corporal Seth Kelly……YOU ROCK!

Partner workout from start to finish. And check out the last few pics….THIS is how we get a Corps Fitness workout done…ALL TOGETHER!!!

And we are currently at $918 raised for the purchase of tourniquets and holders!!!!! That is fantastic! Remember….collection for this will remain open until 12/15.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU….for your support in attending the workout, and your generous monetary support of our tourniquet fundraising efforts! Stay tuned for a final collection amount and total number of tourniquets purchased!


45+ folks gathered to honor PA State Police Trooper Corporal Seth J. Kelly who was shot in the line of duty on Nov. 7th. Miraculously, he survived multiple gun shot wounds, and after spending 23 days in the ICU, he is home and continuing his recovery there.
This workout was a partner effort through and through.
