Appreciate yourself for your strengths.  We all have them.

Challenge Entry for Sundays

Hi BCFer's!

There is a 12 pm class set up in Wodify on Sundays in order to enter your points.  Sign into the class via your Wodify app, and enter your score into the comments as you would a regular class.

DON"T SHOW UP FOR CLASS AT NOON!  There won't be anyone at BCF. :)  This is merely for points entry.  And each Sunday until the challenge ends- there will be one of these 12 pm classes for entry purposes.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Each point counts!  We have daily mobility & stretching, below is an article to remind us why it is important to do this.  It's not enough to just work out. Make sure to take the time to take care of your body- especially if you are working it more than you typically do.

The Airdyne is not my friend so I thought I'd try to find an article that talks about the benefits- maybe that will give me the umph to tackle this workout! It really is a pretty good one.
