CFVP is proud to announce one our exciting new class offerings. Team CFVP will be starting with the opening of our new space. The term "Team" doesn't mean you have to be a competitor to particpate. However, it will be different in some aspects and in general, suited to the more experienced athlete. The idea will be to let athletes work on more advanced skills and incorporate these skills into conditioning workouts. While we continue to work on all details that will help you decide if these classes are for you, here are some general guidelines. Remember you will see particular classes on the schedule with movements/skills you may or may not have. Those same skills will still exist in our regular classes so keep working hard on acquiring them! If you aren't sure about a class but want to try it, just consult with one of your coaches.
