From our weekly email communication:
Hi FCF Community!
We hope you’ve been enjoying the additional class options we’ve thrown into our schedule, including Yoga, HIIT, and Shadowboxing. We will continue to add more options as we develop them.
Here are some TIDBITS FOR THIS WEEK:
- Special workouts with Andrew at 8am Monday, 8am Wednesday, and 4:30pm Friday.
- Wednesdays at 6:30pm On Zoom: A mid-week STRETCH class to get over the hump. It’s also Wine Down Wednesday (;
- On Thursdays at 6:30pm, join “Shoot the Sh!t” with Andrew on IG and FB live as he answers your questions from the week and dotes on other hot topics.
- And of course, don’t forget about Champagne Friday Social Hour, HIIT on Saturday, Yoga and Cooking on Sunday!
NEW FEATURE: Workout Prep Videos
You’ve told us that your schedule can make it tough to jump into one of our coached classes on Zoom. To address this feedback, we’re adding another element to our virtual coaching program: Workout Prep Videos.
Workout Prep Videos will guide you through the day’s warmup, skills, and stimulus for the workout, and at the end of the video you’ll be ready to start your own clock for your WOD. We’ve already been testing this out (if you’ve been paying attention to the blog) this past week.
HOW IT WORKS:
RSVP for our Workout Prep Video on Zenplanner, and at 6:30pm every evening, we will release our Workout Prep Video for that day’s workout. Watch the video whenever you’d like – even the next day – and don’t forget to share your results to the blog!
We believe this additional feature will capture those who are not available to join our coached classes on Zoom, and fulfills our promise to provide you an engaging fitness experience for your paid membership.
Earlier this week, we sent our a survey to get a pulse on our members. If you haven’t submitted your feedback, we’d love to hear how we’re doing!
RPM JUMP ROPES IN STOCK!
We’ve replenished our stock of RPM Jump Ropes, so if you’re looking for a new rope for your outdoor workouts, come get one custom-sized for you personally. We have both the Session and the Scout ropes available for purchase!
Equipment Rental Program Update
Based on your feedback, we’re simplifying our Equipment Rental Program for our members with a few updates:
- From List A, you may select either kettlebells or dumbbells of any weight, or a rower/bike.
- We’ve consolidated all other equipment into List B, where you can select up to 2 items.
- Rental durations have been doubled from our original timeframes.
When you’re ready to come in for equipment, please RSVP on ZenPlanner, and fill out our Equipment Rental Form to let us know what you’d like.
Additional packages may be rented for $10/week.
Our FCF team works very hard to to offer our very best coaching experience that is both engaging and effective. With each feature we offer as part of our Novel Response to the Novel Coronavirus, we strive to make your continued membership worthwhile.
We thank you for your support!
As always, if you have any questions or feedback, please email us!
