How does two weeks feel like two years? A BIG thank you for the patience, the moving help and the flexibility as we moved into our new, temporary space on Eastern Ave in Gloucester. Lots of Blockbuster Video jokes have been made and we can't wait to make more! Bring it on! (For those that don't know, the last tenants of this space was Blockbuster Video. And no, the rental drop, still outside the space, doesn't work. I'm bummed about it too.)

In our new space there are a few quirks.

  • No classes between 9-5. Sorry nooners! We'll get back to it soon.

  • We can't hang stuff from walls and ceiling. No rope climbs, no mounted rig, no wallballs, but we have ace coaches and members that are up for the adjustment for a few months.

  • Also working on getting a water situation for your water bottles. Should be up and running by the end of this week. I’m the meantime, bring full water bottles!

  • No showers, only bathrooms. New space will have showers of course! Another opportunity for practicing flexibility. Yeah!

With this new leaf of CFCA, we are also rolling out some new software. It's pretty intuitive and should be easy to navigate. With that said, technology isn't always friendly, so don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions or issues with the app we are using. Once you sign up for a membership, you will receive an invite to download the app and you'll be off and running. If you haven't already, you can sign up for a membership here.

And guys. Don’t let the tech stop you from coming to class. If you’ve bought a membership and can’t figure out how to sign up for classes, just message me! I’ll plug you in, and he’ll you figure it out for next time.

With the gym app, ZenPlanner, you will be able to book classes and see the class schedule. To see the workouts and log your results if you would like, you will be using SugarWod. There is a button in ZenPlanner that takes you right there. So don't get too hung up on multiple apps, it will feel seamless once you're in practice of booking classes and checking the workouts.

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy is the hope and prayer!

Although we will have the same stellar coaches and heart of CFCA members joining us in this next phase of the gym, I do realize we are doing a lot of things different. Sometimes different feels hard, I know this. We can do hard things. I am really excited about what's next for our gym and the amazing people who workout here.

So please be patient with your coaches, other gym members and this {not-so-tech-savvy} Captain of the Video Store Gym as we find our new normal together.

In other words, Be Kind (rewind).

See you in the gym,

Coach Kara
