The holiday season is certainly upon us. I look forward to seeing you and your guests at the 2nd Annual Mingle and Jingle this Wednesday! The dress is casual. No ugly sweaters, please.

Coach Paul will be representing CFS at the Reindeer Romp 5K this Saturday. Coach Jeff will be leading the sessions.

CFS will be participating in the Lurong Resolution Challenge. Registration begins today and the Challenge begins January 19th and ends February 22nd. Click here for additional details. The more folks who register, the more prizes we are are eligible to earn!

I often talk about the importance of efficiency. As a small business owner, I’m always looking for more efficient ways to run the box. Upon reviewing expenses, I realized that I am sometimes selling items at a loss (particularly items that sell for less than $5), as the bank charges are very high. Going forward, all non-cash purchases must be for a minimum of $15. If you would like to purchase an item for less than that amount, you may purchase a store credit. For example, you may purchase a store credit for $15 or more and then purchase FitAid, KillCliff, Best Bar Ever, etc. I appreciate your cooperation. I also ask that, if you haven’t already done so, you change your payment method from credit card to checking account if at all possible.

Are you looking for that one special gift? I suggest purchasing a CFS Gift Certificate! Members may use to purchase products, use toward monthly membership fees, etc. See Coach Paul or Coach Jeff to purchase.
