For those lacking the self-motivation, being OK with being OK, eating bad, not coming in here often enough, etc. you are hereby wanted and needing to sign up for Accountability Month.How it works:We will be assigning you a partner to keep you accountable. Diet, attendence, sharing struggles, joys, you name it... your accountability partner will be a BCF athlete who you can be accountable to. We all know this stuff works, but you have to eat right, come to class, and follow-up with it day after day. Why not make it happen next month, especially when we start the Paleo Challenge. You must be honest with your partner, tell them if you went to classes, ate the way you wanted, etc. It’s also going to be a good way to meet people you’ve not had a chance to. Get outside your comfort zone and let’s start up new relationships!!!Sign up: RACEAre you signed up for the Spartan Race? The race is slated for 9:30 am (our team’s start time) on Nov. 2.
