Just letting everyone know we are finalizing our affiliation process for Fayetteville NC. We’ve gotten the approval, so as soon as the holidays are over, we’ll complete everything.

Currently we are looking at two phases, the first is to make regular Suffer on Saturdays for anyone in the Fayetteville-Ft Bragg & Pope AFB area as well as regularly structured CF workouts. Soon after, we will begin and finish the process of getting our studio finished so we’ll have a dedicated CF facility.

John,

Yes! A new CrossFit facility and a tie-in to one of my favorite movies (and villains), Cape Fear (yes, I know it's actually a location and not just a movie). 'Cause you gotta admit, De Niro was pretty CrossFit in the way that he fought off those thugs with the steel pipes, and in the way he held himself under the Cherokee for that long ride. ;-)

Seriously, though, congratulations on your affiliation.

Mike

Thanks! We're really amped about it as well. As we adopted it into our training of clients (and selves) - even bodybuilding - the more I knew this is the direction to take our plans.

What's been so awesome is the sense of community that CrossFit has shown - from the business side to the rest of us... top notch.

John, you're in my old Airborne stomping grounds.
You'll have a blast with those rowdy knuckleheads!

Hi John, whereabouts will your facility be located? I'm in Fayetteville also, and there are nothing but women only gyms and day spas on my side of town (near Methodist College).

Tony,
We're currently at the Presbyterian Rec Center on Hay St/Morganton Rd while waiting on the studio stuff. We do a WOD on Wednesdays currently and after this week (affiliation paid) we'll be organizing some on bragg/pope and outdoors. Drop me an email or give a yell to stop by.

LOL - in the designing stages. Right now, we're just going to add them to our DIF shirts... gotta come up with a unique phrase.
