Doesn’t get much better when you have swat team members, firefighters, EMTs, and police officers who are members at the gym.  Not only do the kiddos have some fun with it, but we all feel a little safer 😉

Speed – 10 minutes

Every minute on the minute for 10 minutes, sprint 100m.  Your slowest time of all 10 runs is your score, so give it your best 🙂

***There is no turn around point, start approx 10ft from the white brick wall around the dumpster and run to the 100m mark.  Rest until the next minute hits and then sprint back.

***Coaches – please use your phone or a watch as a timer and as they  start to cross the finish line each way, start loudly reading off the seconds so they can post their times accordingly

*IF RAINING-  split class into two groups...

Welcome our newest coaches, Chris Crosby and Megan Fess to CFR!!!  We are honored to have you!  


Chris Crosby

(USAW Level 1 Cert)

Chris has lived in the Springfield area since he was 12 years old and really loves the area.  He has a bachelor’s degree in communication and currently works at O’Reilly Auto Parts in the IT department.  Chris played a lot of sports growing up but has always been on the heavy side.  In 2011, he found himself very over weight, and he knew that he had to change something.  So, he started running and doing boot camps.  In the process, he lost over 90 pounds and ran several half marathons and a marathon.  However, he broke his foot while running and then ended up putting all the weight back on and then some.  That is when he found CrossFit...

What’s new… When you walk into CFR you will now notice an ever evolving CFR community wall with nothing but pictures of our members getting through a workout, posing for a quick picture, or enjoying their friends at the gym.

Next, you’ll see the start of a coaches wall that will evolve as we update their pictures and info.

Lastly, we will now be starting a monthly member spotlight board (eventually a new member board as well).  What will typically spotlight one individual from the gym that has shown commitment in the gym and life, inspires others, and brings a smile wherever they go… we will showcase two members to start us off for June!   Marie Burks and Aaron Routon!

While Marie has no idea, who is currently on vacation, was a special nomination because of all the hard work and l...
