Don’t think we don’t see you. Don’t think people don’t recognize your efforts. Motivators by word. Motivators by efforts. Both are equal in importance!

This month’s Motivator fits the bill completely!

Congratulations to Amanda S. on being selected as April’s Motivator of the Month!!! Please let Sandy know if you’d like a free 1 hour massage or loyalty points added to your account!

April Challenge
Snow in March got you down?  Not feeling lucky this St. Patty’s Day?  Our April attendance challenge is the perfect thing to turn things around and create your own luck!!  See Wednesday’s post for more details and sign up today!!

All Out In Berks – Volunteers Needed
We’re in need of a few CFers to volunteer for the AOIB on April 1st.  The event will run from about 8 AM – 1 PM, and will be a fun time encouraging some awesome athletes and seeing some incredible feats of athleticism!  A bunch of other local gyms are participating, so it’ll be a great way to meet some others who share your passion for fitness.  If you’re in, sign up at the front desk today!

CrossFit Open
Speaking of volunteering, judging the CrossFit Open workouts is a great way to sharpen your skills at recognizing good and bad movements / reps.  This week’s workout is a 13-minute time cap of 4 exercises everyone is familiar with.  If you’ve got 13 minutes to spare after tonight, Saturday 9:15, Sunday, or Monday’s PM class, please stick around!  And a reminder: you don’t have to complete the CrossFit judge’s course to judge competitors this year!

Ongoing Open Gym Times
Open gym times are continuing thanks to our PSU student trainers!
We have added:
Mon-Fri 6:30am – 1pm and 6:30pm – 7:30pm
Sat 10:30 – 11:30am
Sunday 9:30 – 10:30am

Attendance challenge pic

Snow in March, just a few days before spring’s arrival, gotcha down? We have the perfect thing to help get your mind off of it….A CHALLENGE!
This is a challenge ANYONE can do. It’s an Attendance Challenge.
Rules are on the flyer attached, but key points to know:
1. Runs the entire month of April.
2. Must Pre-enter the challenge before the start of the month by signing up at front desk.
It’s a very simple challenge, and will result in a huge reward for a lucky challenger!
Sign up to commit! Nothing to lose here folks!

THIS SUNDAY May 15th is the CF Pinnacle Hike:
Join us for a social hike up to the Pinnacle overlook near Hamburg.  Meet at CF ready to leave the parking lot at 8:30 AM, or meet in the Hamburg reservoir parking lot by 9 AM.  Rain date TBD if necessary.  Out and back hike, approximately 7 miles, slow pace, plan for it to take most of the day / returning early to mid afternoon.  If you do 8:30 AM class, you probably can hike quickly and meet up with the group even if you get there around 10 AM, or we’ll eventually cross paths because it’s an out and back hike…  Just a thought for the FOMO CFers.

TEACHER + NURSE APPRECIATION
We’re rolling out a new pricing schedule for our teacher and nurses!  Check out the top of CF’s fees page for more information!

ANNOUNCEMENTS
Join Senator Judy Schwank at Corps Fitness this Saturday for a blood drive!

?

  • Remember to check out the CF Loyalty Program and Incentives we announced earlier this month: Earn points, get stuff!
  • The KAAG CHALLENGE is ON!  Let an instructor or Chris know when you want to try your hand at it!  Riley is available for moral support, and Carter is always happy to yell at you to go faster!

  • Please pardon our appearance as we rearrange and perform some spring cleaning!  Lots of great changes are coming, including repurposing the spin room as part IM ABLE office and part kids room (when needed), moving spin to the former kids area.  The former IM ABLE office will become a retail / social area for all CFers.  Thank you for your understanding!

SCHEDULE UPDATES:
– Effective starting NEXT week, we are putting the Wednesday 6:30PM CrossFit class on hold for the spring and summer.  Join in the 5:30PM class to get your CF fix!

– The 7AM Saturday class has been wobbly in attendance for a bit… so we’d like feedback from everyone.  We still want to offer 2 classes on a Saturday, but want to know what works best for our members.  Folks can reply to comments on blog, can reply to comments on FB or send an email to melissa@corpsfitness.net as per their choices.  If you have a preference, PLEASE respond….if there are no responses, we will make the change ourselves, but we’d rather here from you!
