Can you smell the sea breeze?

You can feel it. You know it's coming. It's something you've been looking forward to for weeks - no... MONTHS.

Summer is almost here! After what seemed like a never-ending winter, we can finally enjoy the outdoors and that includes the return of CFT's Beach WODs! We take advantage of the fact that we are in a beach community and hit the sun and the sand for some of the more unique WODs you'll ever do!

Also coming up is our Summer Kickoff Cookout & Annual Throw Down! Teams of CFT athletes go head-to-head for the 2nd year in a row. Intense (yet good-natured) rivalries brew up, and the social media that the athlete community comes up with is 24k GOLD!
