If you’re reading this blog post, chances are you saw last week’s post about the IM ABLE wine and paint party happening tomorrow evening at Corps Fitness from 5:30 - 9:30 PM.  Due to the forecasted inclement weather and the fact that we’d prefer to keep our CFers from getting pneumonia, we’re moving the class up to 4:30 PM for tomorrow only and adding a noon class.  If you’re still interested in signing up for the wine and paint party, please see last week’s post for the link - deadline is NOON on Tuesday 12/1!

In summary, we’re adding a NOON class, and the class normally scheduled at 5:30 PM is moved to 4:30 PM for tomorrow only!  We apologize for any inconvenience.  All other class times are unchanged.


Join IM ABLE, Corps Fitness and your friends on Giving Tuesday, next Tuesday December 1st, for a Wine and Paint night out!  Fundraisers like these are crucial to help offset the costs of providing adaptive equipment grants to our many deserving applicants.  Tickets are $50, with $20 going directly to the IM ABLE Foundation.  The evening will include a grant presentation, fun time out with friends, raffle items, food, music, not to mention walking away with a beautiful painting!  Please sign up in advance at the following link: http://blushbrushart.com/sign-up.html#!/December-1-2015-Tuesday-5-30-9-30-Corps-Fitness/p/56215062/category=14086079 See you on Tuesday!!

It’s very normal to be mildly, moderately, or very sore with limited mobility after a workout like we did on Friday.  That means you pushed yourself beyond what you have before, and are establishing new comfort levels.  However, if you experience any symptoms of rhabdymyolysis (severe pain, dark coca-cola colored urine), please seek medical attention immediately!  This is no joke and can be treated if caught early.  It can be very dangerous if not deadly if not treated.


Honoring Sean Flannery all day today as we approach the 5th anniversary of his sacrifice.  Sean, of Wyomissing, was killed on November 22, 2010 in Kandahar province, Afghanistan, when insurgents attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device. CF’s very own Brian Flannery, will lead the 5:30 PM workout this evening.  His words about his brother and how we could honor him with our suffering will undoubtedly inspire everyone through a tough workout. Please keep the Flannery family in your thoughts today and every day.
