Hey Team,

When I first opened our gym in 2012, I swore that for better or worse I would run the business exactly the way I wanted .  A place where I could be myself and a gym where members are free to let their hair down and keep it real.

I have always been careful to, and taken pride in running an honest business, and in treating our people the way I would like to to be treated. It has been a point of pride for me throughout our years in business, and that won't change going into the future.

A year ago, we had 129 members.  Remember those days? Classes were HUGE.  Slowly, people started avoiding certain class times due to the size.  Then gradually people began to leave, for the same reason. 

For the last year I haven't done any serious advertising. No Groupon, or big specials.  I've let the gym find its balance, and I think we have.  We've been in a holding pattern for the last 3 months, as far as membership numbers go, as I've let things settle.

The gym has found its sweet spot.  Retention is solid, class sizes are perfect (in my opinion), and we are able to provide the type and quality of coaching that I believe is missing in most other gyms, not just in CrossFit. 

So the decision was: raise membership rates, or bring in 30 more members and try to manage chaos.  It was an easy decision, only because of its necessity.  We have more classes, more equipment, and better coaching than any gym in our area, and our rates have been considerably lower than other local CF boxes. 

So beginning February 1st, all members will be brought to our 2018 rate of either $119 or $149 per month. And because I love you all equally, we'll also cease "special case" discounts on that date.

I know the increase isn't much for most of you, but there are other cases, and I understand that.

If this places too much of a surprise burden on your budget, you may prepay for up to 2 months in advance at your current rate. This payment is due before Feb 1st. Then, beginning April 1st, (or 15th) you can make your fist payment at the new rate.


For the few of you that have Paid In Full for the year, you will not owe anything, and won't be due for an increase until your current 12 months expires.  At that time you can purchase a paid in full 6 months, or 12 months at our current rates, minus your 10% or 15% discount for being a Paid In Full.


Those of you on a Couples Membership will still receive 10% off of the second membership.


1: You may Freeze your membership for 30, 60, or 90 days for any reason, at $25/per month of the Freeze. 

2: If the Freeze is for a medical reason, for you or a family member, you will not be charged.


If you believe that your case warrants a different arrangement from everyone else in the gym, you can email me directly at

I am meeting with the coaching staff on Friday to discuss some changes to help us continue providing the best CrossFit experience around.  I want to provide our members with the best, and I will be expecting the very best from our coaching staff.  

I will post some of the changes here on the website over the weekend, after the Coaches meeting on Friday.

I am super stoked to announce that on February 17th from 5-9pm, we will be offering a CFC Parents Night Out.  You are welcome to bring your kiddos by anytime during those hours, allowing parents some much needed adult time.  

We will have a video game system set up, as well as projector and large screen for a movie.  Please provide snacks and drinks for your kids. 

This is a free event for our members and their kids.

There will be a sign up board out on the floor beginning next Monday.  Please sign up if you plan to drop your kids off, and let us know how many kids you're bringing, to help Howard and Gina better plan.

Looking forward to a great 2018, Cimmerians. Thank you for allowing me an incredibly rewarding career.  I promise to give you my best.

Getting started

Option 1: CFC 4 Week Foundations Program.  $150

New Programs begin on the first Monday of every month, and meet MWF from 6-7pm.  This 12 Class Program is the perfect chance for people who are brand new to CrossFit to learn the basics, in a safe and welcoming environment.  The goal of this program is to introduce new athletes to all of the movements they'll need to know to be successful in CrossFit.  Safety and mechanics are priority #1. By the end of this program, you'll be ready to jump into our normal classes during any of the other regularly scheduled times.


Option 2: CFC Fast Track Program.  $150. 

For busy parents, or those who can't commit to the days and times of the Foundations Program, this is a great option to jump start your CrossFit journey.  You will work 1-on-1 with a coach, on days and times that fit your schedule.  You will cover all the same material that you would learn in Foundations, but because we are working 1-on-1, we are able to get you through it a bit faster.  At the end of this program, you will have a full understanding of CrossFit methodology, and be ready to begin taking normal classes.
