Want to incorporate more organic vegetables into your diet? Are you strapped for time and want an effortless way to take better care of your health? Do you want to discover new recipes that involve vegetables that you may or may not be currently including in your diet? Then, the CFCOA Veggie Co-op is for you! Here’s how it works:

You sign up and pay for a bag of 8 different veggies and occasionally one herb by the Wednesday before the co-op (it happens every other Saturday). Then, you pick up your bag on Saturday between 10:30 and 12pm. It’ that simple. The price varies on different factors (recurring or not, volunteer or not).

Also, remember that we offer organic, free range eggs as well. These are sold at the flat price of $3.50. These eggs are AMAZING, and you can’t beat the price!

Important Info – Check-In Changes

“In order to see progress, you must have a starting point and only then will you have a clear perspective of your trajectory.” – Anonymous

To match our amazing transition from our old space to the new, we at CFCOA are making efforts to improve upon our programming. Bad-ass members require bad-ass programming, and that’s exactly what we continually strive to provide. One fundamental shift is our focus on Quarterly Athletic Cycles, progressing us across Crossfit’s 10 General Physical Skills with greater depth in 3 month rotations. Mobility, Recovery, and Skill development is the emphasis this upcoming cycle, where Speed, Technique, Agility, and Body Weight movements will be in the forefront of our Workouts. Make sure to come the week of July 7-12 for CHECK-INs where we will be testing 5 physical abilities, giving us a picture of your current athletic level. Different components of the Check-In Tests will be conducted in all classes, so plan your workout week accordingly in order to accomplish all 5 tests. GOAT is available to make up any tests you miss during the week.

You are awesome, now you’ll have documented proof!
