CFP May Newsletter

Upcoming Events:

April showers bring May flowers, right? Let's hope, cross our fingers & wish for some sunny sunshine this May! We have lots of exciting things coming your way this month, but first of all, Megan would like to take a moment to give you one upcoming date to be aware of...

May 12th is someone's birthday, not just one of our great members, but one of our coaches, a very handsome one in my opinion. Bret will be turning 28 this month! It would be amazing if you could/would help me celebrate him on his birthday & make him feel special. I know you appreciate Bret as much as I do, so let's show him some LOVE on Thursday May 12th! Thanks guys, -Megan

Members of the Month!
Meet Sarah!

How long have you been strength training at CFP?  Since the beginning...
What is your proudest accomplishment so far?  My only slightly jumped pull up on my 48th birthday.
What are your current goal(s) you'd like to achieve in the next 3 months? A full pull up.  
What is one goal you'd like to achieve over the next year?  10 full pull ups and therefore completing "the boy's century" at a B level of course.
What is your favorite cheat food, drink? Wine and Pizza.
Most "love it or hate it" exercise? Anything with over 30 repetitions.
How many days per week do you strength train at CFP? What do you do for exercise outside of CFP, # times per week? Two days a week at CFP. Anywhere from 1-4 days of cycling and the pull up/push up at home or a CFP workout on the road.
Which habits (pick 1 or 2) do you most attribute your continued success to?  I am ridiculously competitive once I get the right incentive - aka "the board" and "Strava".  Biking in general, I haven't met a hill I didn't want to climb, as well as having accountability to the CFP team.
Favorite ability you’ve gained from your training?  The pull up (should I repeat myself here...I love the pull up!)

Get to know a little bit more about Sarah: I have zero pets, one husband (and stoker par excellence), two daughters, three stepsons, four bikes. I love to travel to fun/exotic places in the US and abroad. I am an avid knitter, great scratch-cook and love to garden. Also, I will never, ever, ever, ever no matter what you say, push the "easy" button. (The CFP Team says: "Never say never Sarah!") And, more than anything I love that my mom is now part of the CFP family too.

Meet Jack!
How long have you been strength training at CFP?
I believe I have been working out at CFP for about 6 months.

What is your proudest accomplishment so far?
By far “head stands”.  I had never even tried to do one in my life and to accomplish it at 66 years old is pretty cool.  I was very nervous about even trying it at first.

What are your current goal(s) you'd like to achieve in the next 3 months?
Well,  if there is one thing I have learned in the past six months it is not to limit what might be possible if you showing up and work hard.  So with that said, I’m excited about losing a few more pounds, getting in better shape, and seeing what “might be possible." 

What is one goal you'd like to achieve over the next year?
Pick any reasonable hiking trail in the region and hike it with ease.

What is your favorite cheat food, drink?
Chicken nuggets and a glass of Pete’s Mountain Cab.

Most "love it or hate it" exercise?
Finally an easy question!  Love the windmill and really hate Bulgarian split squats.

How many days per week do you strength train at CFP? What do you do for exercise outside of CFP, # times per week?
I have strength trained 3 times a week at CFP.  Outside of CFP, I enjoy walking the Oregon Golf Club when I play, walking the Willamette area, and recently we purchased a rowing machine for our home and I’m just getting into that.

Which habits (pick 1 or 2) do you most attribute your continued success to?
I think having the discipline to show up each day is important.  Not only at CFP but in life.   I’m a competitive person so I really enjoy the challenge of improving each week.  Last but not least I enjoy the company of everyone I work out with.  It is an amazing group!  We have a lot of fun. And last but not least I truly enjoy Bret as an trainer and mentor.  He is well beyond his years the way he manages each person’s program to fit their personality and ability levels

Favorite ability you’ve gained from your training?
The easy answer is being able to do a prolonged head stand in the middle of a room.  But beyond that, and more important to me, is the fact I feel so much better doing routine things during the day.  

More from Jack:
I would be remiss if I didn’t thank the people that I routinely  workout with.  They inspire me, encourage me, and make it fun.  You know who you are.  Thanks to each of  you! 
Our Wall of Fame continues to GROW each and every Month! We congratulate those who continue to work hard & show your determination through writing your names on the board! Here's to MORE personal bests just around the CORNER!
