I’m a very fortunate guy. I’ve got a great job and I work in a really cool industry. So cool in fact that members of this industry go out of their way to help, teach and give.   I say this because we had a REALLY busy weekend at CFA.   On Friday night, we held a charity event to support Melissa‘s Black Dog Brigade.

It goes beyond a business plan, revenue goals or operations planning. I’d like to share that with you now. Our Vision here is pretty simple:  Help others reach their goals. Setting up that vision is possible through and living by three words here at CFA: Motivation. Support. Results. What do those words mean here?   Motivation: We believe success drives motivation, not the other way around. We don’t have coaches here that will...

When someone walks into CFA for a tour and an Intro-Meeting, our conversations often drift toward success stories.  As I think back, all of our members have achieved some form of success (as defined by them and their goals). For that I’m especially proud. One in particular does stand out. I’ll tell you who they are and offer a few reasons why this person sticks out in my mind.   Stacy Cifeli has been a member at CFA since June 1, 2015 (The day we opened for business).  When I spoke with her on the phone regarding her starting CrossFit,...
