Wine Down Yoga

Wine Down Friday is happening again Friday November 7th at 7pm.  This is a great way to celebrate all the hard efforts of our DYP Challenge.  We had such a great turnout in the past that we couldn’t wait any longer to do it all over again.

Bring your illuminated candle, yoga mat, and favorite bottle of wine and glass.  This is a slower paced class vs. the usual YogaFIT classes. It is designed for more stretching, flexibility, breathing and restoration from the week of workouts. Feel free to hang with us after and have a glass of wine with your favorite gym and community.

For members it can count as a class. Or you can buy a special single class rate for $10 for this event only. Friends or Spouses that are non-members can attend this class for $10 as well. The more the merrier so please bring your friends plus more friends means more wine :-)

Date: Friday, November 7th

Time: 7:00p – 7:45p is the class time; you are welcome to stay and hangout after class and have wine afterwards.  This is located on the class scheduler. Please sign in as you would for a normal class.

CPM Sleigh the Rower 2.0

It’s already November and the CPM Rowing Challenge will be here before you know it. Many media stories suggest the average person gains 7 – 10 pounds between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Whether this is true or not, let’s face it, it is easy to pack on the pounds this time of year.  The rowing challenge is a great way to make sure that does NOT happen to you! The challenge starts November 28th and ends December 24th.

Reflections, by Mother Plucker

My personal thoughts on another fantastic week at CPMFitness.

  1. Chris says screwing your feet into the ground in prep for your backsquat will turn your butt on. What exactly is “turning your butt on”?
  2. I’m in a pull-up club now.  Being in a pull-up club automatically makes you better at pull-ups. I am accepting applications for new members. Details are here: Pull-Up Club (That’s me in the picture :-) )
  3. I have trouble counting reps during some workouts and usually it’s the workouts that are hard for me.  Am I doing this on purpose because I know my reps won’t be great or is it coincidentally hard to count on those particular workouts?  It’s a mystery.
  4. I want to give a shout out to everyone that got a 1 rep max on their power clean today. We had about 7 people hit their max at the noon class. Good job!! It’s my favorite lift and then we mix it with running…. THE BEST!
