 Thank You!Thank You!Thank You!  
There were ALOT of things going on in March, April & May....finishing up CF Games Open WODs & Family Day and we just want to say THANK YOU to our CrossFit Strong FAM-UH-LEE!! Y'all were rock stars in not only participating in things but helping out when needed!

CF Games Open- WOW - what an exciting 7 weeks of competition! We saw so many awesome things get accomplished during those 7 weeks. Everyone's support was amazing. PRs were made - people were doing things that had NEVER EVEN TRIED! As a coach - THAT'S what it is all about....getting outside your comfort zone and pushing yourself until someone yells TIME. CONGRATS to EVERYONE who finished, participated & helped us every Wednesday night or Saturday!

FAMILY DAY WoW. This was a GREAT event that was put on FOR you & BY you. Thank you again to ALL the volunteers who helped make the day go smoothly, to the cooks who helped feed all of us, to all those who donated either money or gifts to help make it worthwhile.
Thank you to our Sponsor - AshCo, Dental Depot, Republic National Distributing, and Ben E. Keith Beverage Distributor. Your donations helped provide prizes, food & drinks for our big day.
But most importantly, THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME! The day would not have been a success if no one showed up - and there were over 100 ppl there...past, present & future CFS family members! COMMUNITY is what it is all about - friendships. So thank you...from us coaches to you members...thank you for being such a STRONG FAMILY!

 Friendly Reminders....  
Our classes are getting BIGGER and the summer months are approaching FAST and temperatures are only going to get HOTTER! And the hotter the temperatures, the more we sweat! Here are some friendly reminders on gym etiquette

Some things to remember - as weather gets hotter & classes continue to grow!
- DRINK WATER! Make sure you are staying hydrated throughout the day - before & after the WOD
- WEAR DEODARANT!! It is hard enough to breath during WODs as it one wants to inhale BO as well! Extra never hurt anyone!
- WIPE DOWN EVERYTHING!! You touched it - wipe it down! If you are an excessive sweater, bring your own towel to help wipe down during WODs. But disinfect after every WOD
- After you finish the WOD - do not congregate in the workout area - ppl may still be working out & do not need to work around you. Be considerate of those still working out as well as the class after you
 Organic Co-Op Opportunity  
Urban Acres is a local organic market located in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas. Their co-op style produce system helps bring organic vegetable to you with out you shopping or figuring out what is in season. They deliver to CrossFit Strong every 2 weeks so it is an convenient pick up. There produce is always fresh and very affordable. It is $30 for a half share - which could easily feed a couple or small family. A full share is $50 if your family is larger or you want to split with someone!
