Starting Sunday, all week, Tyler and Amy will be out of the country for vacation. We will try to ensure that we have as many classes as possible! All our coaches also work full time so it’s very gracious on their part that they fill in the spaces I cannot. There will be some classes we cannot do (7am) all week so please check the calendar!
If you have any membership questions or issues, please email [email protected] and not tyler directly. No Facebook messages either. All email will be answered as best and quickly as possible by me, Sara Lessmann! I’m excited to be working for BCF and all you super cool members, but I kindly ask for your patience in my responding, I’m still trying to figure out how everything works!
If you have other immediate issues or question, get them to tyler by Saturday. Thanks again, to all you members, for the flexibility, and thanks to the coaches, for your dedication!

This Saturday, Sept 21 is the first BCF Dodge Ball tournament. You’ll be randomly assigned a team consisting of 3 men and 3 women. Each team will play in a minimum of 3 games in a round robin style tournament. Winners advance to the next round, while runner ups advance to the runner up bracket. We’ll crown one winner, where I’m sure they’ll get some cool prize or a cooler of Gatorade dumped on them, TBD.
All are welcome to come play, watch, cheer, drink beer, workout, clean the gym, tend to the wounded, remove bodies…
We’re also hoping the new brewery at the end of the block, yes that’s right we have a brewery at the end of the block, Big Head Brewing Company will be open and ready to serve us.
So come join the fun and throw a big red ball at your friends!

Our L2 classes have started! We plan to have a test out day every month for which you test out to enter this class. It’s an advanced class for advanced athletes looking to take their fitness to another level, either as a competitor in the Sport of CrossFit, or just to be better in general.

If no one RSVPs to open gyms, they will be canceled! So be sure to RSVP if you are planning on stopping in.
If you leave a pool of sweat, there is a mop and bucket. Use it. It’s not only for coaches.
Final note, when you touch it, you must clean it. If you use it, put it away (cups, tape, boxes, rings, etc). The more that the coaches have to clean up, the more it takes away from coaching.
Summer = heat = humidity = sweat = more to clean. Please keep YOUR gym the cleanest gym around.
