Box Closed for holiday.
We will run an AM only schedule tomorrow, Monday September 7, Labor Day. We will be open at 8am, 9am, 10am, and 11am.
September On-Ramp begins this Tuesday September 8 at 6:00pm. Last chance to share with friends/family to join us for the program before October. If you know someone who is interested or on the fence give them one last nudge to come in and join us.
This coming Friday is September 11 which is our annual 343 WOD. If you have bunker gear please consider bringing it and wearing it for the WOD. If you have body armor, a bullet proof vest, or weight vest please consider wearing it. We will run a regular Friday schedule with an abridged warm up and no skill session to allow ample time to complete the WOD. We would like to get photos of all classes in front of the memorial flag in the lobby pre-WOD. If you don’t typically attend Fridays please try and attend this coming Friday.
The box will be closed next Saturday September 12 as we are renting the space to a production company to shoot a commercial. We have decided to take to the softball fields of the neighborhood for a little AM vs PM softball game. All CFB athletes are invited and encouraged to represent their respective time of attendance. We will assemble at 9:30am at Kennedy Park. You can park on the street on 113th St. I hope to use the softball field just behind the playground. On the north side of the park.
We are happy to participate in the Recovery Rocks Serenity Family 5K being held Sunday September 20 at 1:00pm at Circle Park in Evergreen Park. Proceeds from this event aid Serenity Family Outreach’s mission which is:
“to provide support, resources, understanding, and hope to individuals and families struggling with the disease of addiction. We intend to empower families and decrease the stigma associated with drug addiction so that help can be sought with dignity and acceptance. Serenity Family Outreach is committed to engaging our community in the fight to prevent drug abuse.
Jenny N is the lead for our group and the team name for sign up is Team NEBS. We would love to show our support for this event with a strong CFB presence.

We will be running a Barbells For Boobs event on Saturday October 17. This year’s theme is “Grace meets a Hero!” I have two hero WODs in mind and I will test them both to see which will work best with “Grace” We will keep you posted on what we select.
