Stay tuned for who wins the iPad 2. I will be taking care of the drawing tomorrow (schedule permitting) with the help of some other coaches. (Folks who are eligible are those that raised at least $150 and signed up early on when I posted about the potential of us winning the iPad 2.) UPDATE! We have a winner of the iPad2….. Congratulations to Michael Wilkerson! Stay tuned to the blog for a photo of him with his brand new toy which I will be handing off to him on Friday morning!

From member Cindy Lai (pictured below): “When I started training at CFNYC this year, I had no idea what I was in for. As a personal trainer/boot camp/kettlebell Instructor, I am always looking for new ways to challenge myself. Training at CFNYC has taken me on a whole other level I would not have imagined possible! I am constantly achieving new goals and pushing past mental and physical challenges which keeps me motivated in always striving for improvement. I ran my first half marathon and competed in the first obstacles courses this year, the Metrodash and Spartan Race with excellent timing due to all the CF training. CFNYC has enriched my training not only for myself but also for my clients and my boot camp students. Everything is possible and nothing is ever too far from reach.”
