Since joining CFHV, what can you do now that you never thought you would ever be able to do? I never thought I would be able to do pull ups and learn the power clean…now I can!

What kind of changes have you noticed in your life since joining the CFHV family? My body image has changed for the better, and I feel so much stronger and fitter.

Tell us about your experience with the community of CFHV.
It has been awsome, everyone is so encouraging, and if I don’t come for a day I miss it.
