Starting tomorrow, Wednesday April 12, we are rolling out Em's Fitfest, where we are combining the CrossFit and Em's Fitcamp classes into one class (similar to the High-Intensity Mix Classes). The Wednesday workout format will still be a long, grueling and fun workout but we will now offer a fitcamp version of the WOD. Please NOTE that this is on a trial basis as we need to test out the sizes of the classes. As with anything we do, if we feel that it is not working, we will adjust or return to our normal class set-up. We plan to do very intentional programming to accommodate a larger crowd and varying ability levels. There will also be two instructors for the larger afternoon and evening classes. FOR TOMORROW ONLY, we kept the WOD simple and purposely did not include a lot of equipment or barbells so that we can see how many people will be attending the different time frames. NOTE: This will not be the norm, so please don't assume the WODS will no longer be "CrossFit-esque." They still will. You will see barbells, rigs, etc. in future Fitfest WODS. Em's FitFest Class Times * All Fitfest Classes are on the CrossFit side (except 5AM). Please note that CrossFitters may take the 5AM. The only equipment we do not have on the Fitcamp side is Rope Climbs. You should be able to do all other movements.* 5AM, 6AM, 7AM, 9:30AM, Noon, 3PM, 4PM, 5PM, 6PM, 7PM

Em's FitKids & CrossFit Kids - COMING SOON!

The primary reason we created the combined Fitfest class on Wednesdays was to open up space in our Fitcamp area to bring back our Kids program. With so many families at the gym now, we figured it was a great time to re-introduce this. We will be offering Em's FitKids classes (Age 2 - 8) and CrossFit Kids and Teen Classes (Ages 9 thru Highschool). More details to come! We want to test out the Fitfest classes before officially announcing the kids class times.

Annual Survey Follow Up Thank You to all of the members who completed the annual survey. We sincerely appreciate the feedback and will do our best to implement your ideas and suggestions. We strive for constant improvement each and every year. Our first line of business was to address some cleaning related concerns. We purchased a new machine scrubber that is more reliable and has better water control to address the mat issue. We have also restructured our front desk and open gym staff's duties to help with cleaning throughout the day and not just at night. We are in the process of reorganizing some of the storage areas and equipment placement as well.

Annual Equipment Purchase We use 100% of the annual equipment fee to purchase equipment each year. Thank you to our members for paying this additional fee as it helps us to maintain, repair and replace equipment on a regular basis. The fee this year was used to refurbish and repair 23 rowers. The following purchases were also made: one echo bike and 2 ski ergs, lots of new barbell collars, 2 men's barbells, 2 women's barbells, more bumper plates of all sizes, more dumbbells of various sizes, more slam balls of various sizes, replacement of all the climbing ropes, additional battle ropes, more wall balls of various sizes, more ring sets, dumbbell storage shelf, slam ball storage shelf, more benches. We will be building more boxes soon and will continue to add and replace equipment throughout the year as needed.
