"Why Bother with All This?"

Well do to the continued longevity of this pesky virus I got last week, I've been sidelined from working out for the past 5 days. Hopefully tomorrow I can start up again. It's pretty irritating to be honest. When you're an active person it's tough to do nothing while your body takes care of business.
So in the mean time, with all the activity surrounding the first couple weeks of CF Chickentown I thought I'd take the opportunity to explain a few things. Upon hearing I'm creating a personal gym called CF Chickentown in my garage I've had some people ask, well not ask, out of politeness but at least give the definitive body language ans looks of, "What the hell are you doing?" Which I can't completely take offense to. Even I think what has transpired in the past two weeks has been a bit overboard. I mean, blogs, e-mail address, facebook page, T-SHIRTS?!??

My response? Quite honestly it has been really fun for me and other people seem to be enjoying the endeavor. I'm not looking to build a business or a brand, but maybe I can have some fun with my personal fitness regimen and do some good things with it in the mean time. Sometimes it's fun to play 'house" rather then own one if you know what I mean.

The next obvious question is why "Chickentown"? For well over a year whenever I post on Facebook from my house it gives the location of "Chickentown". As far as most governmental bodies are concerned I live in Hanover Township, Bethlehem, Pa. Chickentown just does not exist unless  you look on Google maps at the intersection of rt. 512 and Hanoverville Rd. As a result it has been asked more time then I can count, "Where the hell is Chickentown?" In a tongue-in-cheek manner, I adopted this (or maybe it adopted me) location as one with great prominence and a place in which I have great pride. People seemed to enjoy the light comedy of the geographical anomaly. So it was, I had little choice but to bestow the name upon my garage.

Where does it go from here? I haven't received any offers for the gym to be made into an "Angry Birds" typed game just yet so I'll keep waiting on that. While I wait, I will be continuing to post workouts that are well rounded in the scope and intensity. You'll notice I try to have a theme or inspiration for a lot of workout because I think that makes it more fun to push yourself through. Occasionally, as with the T-shirt orders, which raised $560 for Heroesintranstion.org, I'll try to have some fun things like group workouts, events, etc.  I will also be adding in some recipes and nutrition items. I have always loved to cook and as any well rounded athlete should know, nutrition is almost more important then the workouts your doing.

So, I'm not sure where this will go, for now it's fun an I've already been able to bring some good out it.
I'll let it take it's own course and let it organically evolve into whatever it will be.

So we move forward...
