We are more than happy to announce that Ben Howe will be the newest member of the coaching staff here at CFF. Not only is he a beast, but as a physical therapist, he is source of knowledge that all of us will benefit from. Ben will be running a mobility class and open gym on Sundays, and it really couldn’t be from someone more qualified. Can’t wait to see what he has in store for us.
