July 9 2016
Don’t forget! Today we’re happy to host NOOMA for our morning classes, 8:30AM to 11AM! They’ll be handing out free samples of the updated flavors they offer!
Here is the link for the 2016 Clash At The Cabin, hosted by our very own Ben Schiemann, that will occur next Saturday, July 16th, at 11AM. Last year was a ton of fun and there are some very memorable photos from the event! Be sure to respond if you can make it!
Invite anyone you would like, just let me know how many will be coming. Arrival time 11am, race starts at noon. This will be the 2nd annual fun yet challenging Clash at the Cabin obstacle course. This is 100% outside, rain or shine. Expect mud, water and possible painful conditions! The course will be around the cabin and through the woods for a total of over a mile long! Be prepared for a challenging workout. There will be a $20/person fee, which will include bottled water, hamburgers/hot dogs (bring a side dish or snack to share). All proceeds will go to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners, with the remaining money being donated back to CFS. Winners will be determined based on the total time a 2-person team takes to complete the course.
** Slip and Flip was a hit last year so it will of course be bigger and better this year!
The course will be run in teams of 2, one male and one female or we might do male/male and male/female teams like last year. (TEAMS WILL BE PULLED FROM A HAT DAY OF RACE), unless you don’t care about Winning 1/2/3rd then you can run with anyone! One team member has to attempt or finish the obstacle as stated before the other teammate can attempt it. If either teammate fails the obstacle, both teammates have to do the penalty at the same time. You cannot start going to the next obstacle until the current obstacle is finished or both members finish the penalty. Arrows will be directing you to the next obstacle all the way through the course with signs telling when and what obstacle to perform. Teams will be set off in 5-10 minute intervals to hopefully only have one team performing each obstacle at a time.
Anyone who does not want to run the course can still come, cheer everyone on and be part of the “safety crew” or just watch. Also anyone willing to be the photographer let me know. After the prizes are given out everyone is welcomed to stay or come back for an evening of fun at the cabin or just sit by the fire. Kids are welcomed all day as long as a parent can watch them since there is a pond! There is a bathroom in the cabin but there is no drinking water, I will provide bottled water for the race or you can bring your own drinks, the after party is BYOB. Race will start at noon everyone is encouraged to be there by 11 to sign the waiver form and walk the course if desired. Anyone participating in the challenge needs to sign the waiver form!

Today we’re focused less on intensity and lifting heavy things and much more focused on quality metabolic conditioning through this spicy lung-tester. Any extra time after class should be spent stretching or making up for a strength assignment you missed from the week.
