The Franklin Bi-Lo and Fatz of Franklin are corporate sponsors of the programs and provide snacks and door prizes each month.

CrossFit is a high impact activity that uses a combination of strength training, plyometrics, weight lifting, body weight exercises, gymnastics, kettle bells, and speed training and according to Rodney Morris, owner of CrossFit FHFC, it is going to be around for a while.
