Workout of the Day: Sunday 6-3-2012

Andy’s Rant: The fitness business is kind of shady. Why is this? Gyms close with no notice and keep your money. Trainers are unreliable and may or may not be around next week. At CFS we are trying really hard to change that trend. This is a personal promise that you will have a fitness home for life at CFS. Carol and I are committed to Salem, we are not moving, we are not going to change professions. We will grow our family with yours and try to provide a safe, positive, motivational, stable, and ever improving fitness destination. We will make mistakes, but you can talk to us about that and we will listen, we want to be member driven… you are a part of something, not just a member. There will be changes as we grow, that is evevitable. Classes are much bigger than two years ago, but we are booking multiple trainers to keep the small group feel and training attention you need. If you have comments, suggestions, or want to help make CFS better please talk to us! We love what we do, and hope that shows at the box!

WOD Guidelines (workout of the day)

Wear athletic shoes and apparel. Arrive 10 minutes early and introduce yourself to the other participants, start stretching (as best you know how). There is a basic warm up written on the white board... just start doing that and class will start at about 5 after.

Thanks for reading and we can't wait to see you at CrossFit Salem getting in the best shape of your life in a fun supportive environment!
