“One who has control over the mind is tranquil in heat and cold, in pleasure and pain; and is ever steadfast with the Supreme Self.”…Batavi
– A quote from CF’s eternal philosopher Johnnie (from the old Corps Fitness blog…)

But anyway, heat can be dangerous and can kill.  Please heed the posted warnings in the gym, and listen to your body.  We’d rather have you step out for a workout than suffer worse consequences.  Don’t wait for someone else to give you the OK to step out.  Educate yourself, use your brain, and be smart!

What happens at Bldg 7 during Corps Fitness down-time?  Well, IM ABLE uses the space and provides some incredible fitness opportunities to some who may not have the chance otherwise.  Check out Dorian and his friends with Abilities in Motion, and others from the Spring Valley YMCA in Limerick exploring possible collaborations!

Hero Week
Hero Week 2017 is a wrap!  Thank you so, so much to Melissa and Emily for planning this brutally awesome week honoring the founding principles of the US Marine Corps and Corps Fitness.  Thank you to all the CFers who “get it” and give your all because you know the true meaning behind Hero Week.  There was a large number who went for all 7 days…. CONGRATS!
Big props to Ryan McLin who was awarded the inaugural Kyle Pagerly CF Spirit Award for giving well beyond 100%, doing it with integrity, and motivating those around him by work ethic and by words.
Here’s the link for the youtube video recapping the week.

Bring on the heat!  And with that, more sweat!

We are happy to provide you with sweat towels, but it seems as if many of them have frown feet and left the premises!  Please remember to drop off your towel in one of two locations: either in the “Dirty” bin next to the clean towels, or in the laundry basket by the front door.  This allows us to properly launder and sanitize the towels and keep them in the rotation for everyone!  Thank you in advance!!
