The CFSBK Level 1 Certification is SOLD OUT!
There is a lot of work to be done before this event happens.  I've set a goal that by September 30th we will have All the junk at the far end of the room cleared out and have matting all the way to the bathroom.  We've already had some people generously volunteer to help out but we still need more. Please let me know if you're available to lend a hand.
While the cert is kicking out butts into gear about this, it's something that will give us a LOT more real estate to bail on weight and have permanent rack stations instead of moving stuff all the time. In one month our gym will look totally different.

Who is signed up for the cert?!
