Why CFFP?: I started working out at CFFP after my brother had been there for a few months.  I really liked the idea of WODs and structured workouts.  I love CFFP because every time I leave a class I feel good about myself, whether it was a challenging workout or something that I am comfortable with.  Everyone is so supportive and the community is amazing.
