Who Should Participate in Friday Night Lights?

You, yes, you!  It doesn’t matter if you have been at CFG for 2 months, 6 months, 1 year, or 5 years.  Each person adds to the energy and fun, no matter what their ability level.  This year, Friday Night Lights is more about challenging yourself at whatever level you are at, supporting the community, and HAVING FUN!!!
 
We need you on our team!  We will have three in house teams this year lead by Aimee (All-Stars), Danielle (Disco Ninjas), and Miguel (Mighty Mights).  You get points for your team for just participating!  That is right, you help out by just showing up.  
 
We are also really excited to work with local organizations this year.  Each week teams will raise funds to support a local organization.  So far, we have the Pace Center for Girls and Youth Combine on board.  Make it a goal to raise $20-$50 each week for your team.  This is as simple as getting someone to pledge just pennies per rep you complete :-)
 
If scheduling is difficult for you, don’t give up yet!  We can accommodate you with earlier or later heats.
 
This is your chance to meet new people, have a TON of fun, challenge yourself, and do something meaningful for your community.  I can’t think of a reason not to do it.  
 
Don’t wait too long! Register by February 4th to get a t-shirt with your registration.

Where is CrossFit taking you this year?

Recently I have had some great conversations with members about new and exciting events they are trying this year. Evan Stern is attempting his first Go Ruck and Alex James is competing in her first full Ironman triathlon. One of the main tenets of CrossFit is harnessing the fitness, skills, and mental attitude that you learn inside the gym and applying them to another sport or sporting event outside of the gym.

The options are limitless, especially in Florida. You can consider a running or biking race, triathlon, or adventure race. Or how about participating on a local soccer team or putting together a football team for the CFG Flag Football Tournament at the end of the month? If you haven't ever tried one of these things or haven't done so in a while, 2015 could definitely be your year!


For those of you who have already signed up for an event or have plans to do one, please let us know in the comments below. Who knows? You just might inspire someone to join you or you might find some awesome CFG members cheering you on in the crowd!
