ONE more free intro this month after a BIG one last week. 1/28 at 9:30 AM is your last opportunity in January to give Corps Fitness a try for up to 6 weeks for just $70!
Remember that your attendance at a free intro class will then qualify you for a free 2-week Corps Fitness unlimited trial membership. And wait, there’s more! After your 2 week free trial is complete, you can take advantage of a one-time introductory rate of $70 for your first one-month unlimited membership! Great deal, great start to the new year!
Spread the word, and show your friends why Corps Fitness is Best in Berks!
The CrossFit Open will take place from Feb 23 - Mar 27. If you want to register (gives you access to website to see how you’re ranked among others nationally), visit https://games.crossfit.com/
It’s not required to register online - you can still do the workouts at Corps Fitness during the times we’ll set up. Corps Fitness does not get anything for you registering; it’s a personal thing if you want to.
We WILL need judges for the workouts - the judges course is available online. I haven’t tried it yet, but it appears to be open and ready at any point (and a good way for XF to make $10 a pop…). No doubt it’s a good way to learn the movements and what IS vs ISN’T a rep in CrossFit. We’ll gather a list of all who take the judges course and can then score workouts when they come up.
Fight Gone Bad Benchmarking
What were you doing this time last year? Were you all set to start the New Year off with a bang, only to get 3 weeks into it and feel a little off course? How about some CF-style accountability? …as in Fight Gone Bad benchmark testing! Beginning 1/25 and running through 1/29, we’re holding testing. 2 CFers per time slot, 2 rounds of FGB. We’ll repeat at regular intervals so you can see your progress! SIgn up at the desk and be ready to go at your allocated time!

Congratulations to Meg and Brian Flannery on the birth of their daughter, Molly, on Monday 5/30! Meg was at Murph on Saturday, endured a 24 hour labor, and brought little Molly into the world on Monday. This little lady has already given her mommy and daddy a run for their money, but now mama and baby are doing well and getting lots of snuggles. Welcome to the world, Molly!! <3

A short bio on Owen, who will be teaching our Sunday morning class this week:
I’m originally from West Chester PA, where I was a three sport athlete in high school. I studied and played football at Juniata college. I started crossfit after graduated college as a way to stay in shape and was hooked from the beginning. I was certified as a level 1 trainer in 2014. I moved to the Reading area for work purposes in the spring of 2015. After missing the high intensity workout lifestyle for a few months I quickly found Corps Fitness… I got my butt kicked and signed up right after the first workout.

Corps Fitness would like to extend a warm welcome to Justin Cox, who joins us by way of California. Justin will provide opportunities for fitness / strength building in Bldg 7. He is an ASFA trainer as well as a US Marine who served in Afghanistan, Iraq, Africa and the US. In 2004, his Humvee was hit by an RPG and he sustained damage to his hearing and skin, but fortunately avoided catastrophic injuries. We’re excited to provide an opportunity for Justin to get back into the civilian world and motivate some willing CFers!
