Rock Island, IL – The popularity of crossfit fitness programs continues to build momentum with both serious exercisers and newcomers. On January 24, the Sergeant Audie Murphy Club is raising the bar at CrossFit Bond, giving viewers the opportunity to see what the crossfit trend is all about. A viewing party is scheduled at 5:00 pm at 1417 Kimberly Road in Bettendorf. CrossFit is a worldwide strength and conditioning fitness program that uses a wide variety of exercises, including running, rowing, plyometrics, gymnastics, weight training, and Olympic weightlifting techniques. CrossFit Bond is providing a unique opportunity to observe a workout to see what this new craze is all about. Donations are welcome and all proceeds will go directly to Christian Care’s Domestic Violence Shelter and Rescue Mission to help them transform the lives of the homeless and survivors of domestic violence. A Christian Care representative will be on hand to answer any questions about the organization.

The Rock Island Arsenal’s Sergeant Audie Murphy Club (SAMC) recognizes Army noncommissioned officers in the ranks of corporal through sergeant first class who display exemplary leadership, characterized by personal concern for the needs, training development and welfare of soldiers. To be inducted into the SAMC, a soldier must be recommended by his chain of command. The club's namesake, Audie Murphy, rose to national fame as the most decorated U.S. combat soldier of World War II.

CrossFit Bond is a strength and conditioning facility that develops individuals, athletes, and teams to reach elite levels of fitness through constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity. Their methods produce undisputed, tangible results for all levels of fitness; from children to elite athletes, and everyone in between. There isn’t a strength and conditioning program anywhere that works with a greater diversity of tools, modalities, and drills.

Christian Care transforms the lives of homeless individuals, victims of domestic violence, veterans, men and women coming out of prison, and the mentally ill. Their two facilities—a domestic violence shelter for abused women and children and a rescue mission for homeless men—provide safe shelter, nutritious meals, clothing, counseling, and a wide range of programs for those in need. Christian Care’s services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week with the goal of nourishing the bodies, minds, hearts and souls of the men, women and children who come seeking a new way of life.
