A highly emotional workout as we dedicate our smokehouse to Kyle Pagerly, now named ‘PAGS House’. This dedication took place on our 7th and final day of Hero Week. Pags was also the day’s workout honoree. CFers and guests all got to be part of this milestone as well as learning about Pags and how we can honor his legacy while we are here! Participants gave everything they had because they GET TO! Fallen, but Never Forgotten!
All of our heroes throughout hero week gave their lives so we could live on – we’re here, they’re not. We could at least suffer for an hour at a time in their honor.
Thank you to all who came out and were part of this special day! Thank you to Erin Johnson for capturing us ‘getting some’ for Kyle!
Honoring our very own fallen CFer, Kyle Pagerly, tomorrow:
Smokehouse dedication / Bio reading 9 AM
Class begins immediately after dedication
Spin / krank class also at 9 AM

Dundore / Heister will be on site with delicious, fresh, local, clean food as well as their new bad-ass grill! Plan to hang around for at least an hour or two socializing, having some food and beers!
Bring cash! Food will be available to anyone in attendance - no set prices, but donations requested. All $$ raised will be donated directly to the Kyle Pagerly Memorial Fund in order to keep programs like CF’s Badge 27 running, providing affordable fitness opportunities to our local first responders.
For newbie CFers, here’s a little background on Hero Week:
It started in winter 2007 when a group of about 7 CFers decided to honor a few young men and women who hadn’t made it back from fighting for our country overseas. Murph was one, and all told the first time around we honored 7 men and women who we never met but were eternally grateful for their sacrifices. They gave their lives so we could live on - we’re here, they’re not. We could at least suffer for an hour at a time in their honor.
So PLEASE, honor the men and women by giving everything you have every day this week. Yes, you’re sore. Yes, it’s a great workout. But that’s not all. You GET TO do this workout because you’re here. Think about that for a minute. Think about how quickly everything can change. All it takes is one phone call or a knock at the door to turn your world upside down, and the loved ones of our honorees have been through exactly that. Let’s make sure we remember the reason we’re here, especially this week. and do everything in our power to send the message that our honorees are Fallen, but Never Forgotten!
