The BCF Team
The Open begins this week (!!!!!) and will continue over the next five weeks. Due to the amount of people at the gym that we have participating in the Open, we will be blocking off time for those who are participating to do the workouts and have judges available to them. Due to the time slots we had to set aside, we will not be having Daily class on Friday at 7:15 or Sunday morning at 9:30 for the next five weeks. If you would like to come and watch any of the participants do the Open workouts we would (and we are sure they would as well) LOVE to have you come and cheer them on! The time slots are listed below and will be the same for the next five weeks:
Friday- 9:30a to 11a AND 7p to 9p
Saturday- 12p to 2p
Sunday- 9:30a to 12p
If you are participating in the Open, please make sure that you have signed up for a time slot prior to Thursday each week!
We are so excited for everyone that is participating!!!!!
If you are planning on participating in the Open this year there are only a few days left to sign up!!! If you have not signed up yet please click here.
Also, tonight, Monday February 24 from 7 to 830pm, we will be having an info and movements standards session to go over how the Open workouts will be judged. We will also use this to provide those of you who have not participated before a time to ask questions and make sure that you understand how the judges will be scoring, when the workouts can be done, and how the next 5 weeks will run, etc.
Please try to attend tonight if at all possible! We understand it is short notice but we will be going over a lot of important info.
Hope to see you all tonight!
Only two weeks remain for the current BCF Nutrition Challenge!!!! Everyone keep up the hard work...Remember that these rankings do not include ALL of your measurements so changes in the lead can still be made!!
