From Wyomissing to Mifflin to Wilson to Daniel Boone students and more, Corps Fitness has hosted teens looking to improve speed, strength and mental fortitude.
**We are excited to announce a NEW class just for teens, ages 13 through 17 beginning this Tuesday, 12/6 and Wednesday, 12/7 from 4:15 to 5:15PM.**
Cost is $10 per class. Pay when you arrive. Parents must sign a liability form available at the front desk (or you can download and print from our website). We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday!



Our friends and teens from Bethany’s Children’s Home will be coming to celebrate the holidays with us on Dec. 16th, and we’d love to have a big group of CFers there to help spread some holiday cheer to them.  There are still a few Angels hanging on our tree by the front desk.  On these Angels, are a name, age, and a few ideas for perfect gifts for these young guys and girls.  Wrapped presents with Angel affixed to package should be returned to CF Front Desk by 12/12/16.  If you are unavailable to attend the party that evening, you can still choose an Angel and give a gift that we are sure will be much appreciated!

And, if you ARE available to party with us on 12/16, would you consider bringing a dish to share?  The request list is as follows:

Entree: BBQ, Meatballs, Mac n Cheese
Drinks: Cider, Water, lemonade, * non alcoholic Egg Nog
Desserts: Cookies, Brownies, Cupcakes
Sides: Pasta Salad, Macaroni Salad, rolls/buns

If you are planning to bring any of the above items, please email either [email protected] or [email protected] and indicate what you are planning to bring.

We know this is a busy time of the year for everybody, and we appreciate your help in making this a nice evening for our Bethany Children’s Home guests.

This is Ainsley McLain, daughter of Dave and Alexis McLain.  Many of you know Dave from his work on the IM ABLE board or from his regular attendance at 5:30AM classes.  A few weeks ago, Ainsley had her tonsils removed after she indicated she had discomfort in her throat, and it was noticed that one tonsil was abnormally large.  A test on the tonsil revealed that it was a lymphoma…and more specifically, they later diagnosed it as Burkitts Lymphoma.

Thankfully there has been some good news since that initial diagnosis.  First, the doctors indicated that this was a very treatable cancer.  Secondly, it was suspected and then confirmed that the lymphoma was confined just to her tonsil…it was no where else in the body.

However, Ainsley does require chemotherapy which she already began at the start of this week, and she will conclude her first round of treatment next Wednesday.

Next Wednesday, we would like to officially join “Ainsley’s Army” as her Corps Fitness family, and show her that we are in her corner and rooting for her positive outcome all the way!  All workouts next Wednesday, November 2nd will be dedicated and done in support of Ainsley and the whole McLain family.  Additionally, we are doing a pre-order of Ainsley’s Army t-shirts in her favorite color, purple, with gold graphics in support of pediatric cancers.  A look at the t-shirts is below.

We need all pre-orders with sizes by this Friday at 11:00AM so that we can have the t-shirts by next Wednesday’s workouts.

T-shirt pre-orders can be emailed to [email protected], or can be done at front desk.  And don’t forget:  you can make it easy by simply asking the front desk staff to charge the cost of the t-shirt to the credit card we have for you on file!  Even if you are not able to make next Wednesday’s workout, you still can purchase a t-shirt.  Cost is $12/shirt, and proceeds of the shirt sales will be used to purchase a meal gift card for the McLain’s.

Let’s do what we do best at CF and rally around and support someone within our Corps Fitness family!

We have some schedule updates, and we are not waiting until Thursday to tell ya!
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: The Tuesday/Thursday 9:30AM CrossFit classes will now be in an Open Gym format. The workout for those days will be posted for anyone coming in at that time to perform.
EFFECTIVE NEXT WEEK: After it’s summer hiatus, Aimee’s Tuesday 10:30AM spin will be back on the schedule beginning 10/4. Spin classes are a great non-impact work and Aimee spins a [email protected]$$ playlist (and she might even sing for your too!). Come join her next Tuesday! **Krank-ers are welcome to join in too!!!
EFFECTIVE NEXT WEEK: On a TRIAL basis, we are going to launch a SPIN HYBRID class with Melissa beginning next Thursday, 10/6 at 8:45AM.

We will be experimenting with this class as well as the time/day that it is offered to see if there is enough interest. Come and check it out!
