Re: A nice CF exercises/movement videos widget

Johnathan, I guess we have different standards on what makes a good squat. In our gym if you can't do air squats with PERFECT form every single time you sure as heck won't be doing front squats or...

Re: A nice CF exercises/movement videos widget

This is a fantastic idea, but you might want to be REALLY picky about the video you describe as "instructional". I only had to click on the very first Air Squat link and watch for a few seconds...

Re: Clients who think they can walk all over your rules

One thing to consider by opening a new class time is will it help build your business? Everyone who is currently attending classes is already making your current schedule work for them, so would...

Re: getting your affiliates name out

Speaking of websites, my single most important piece of learning I can lend in that area is DO NOT PUT YOUR WODs ON THE FRONT PAGE!! The website is a tool to get NEW people into your gym...if they...

Re: Implementing a price increase?

We've done one significant price increase since we opened, and we grandfathered existing members into the old rates to show our appreciation for them sticking around. Today most of those who were...

Re: New Book: Everyday Paleo by Sarah Fragoso

Definitely invest a few bucks in Sarah's book. You won't be disappointed in the recipes, shopping lists, and "how to's" for paleo living, even if you don't have a family to feed.

Re: Following A Gym's Programming For Too Long?

I'm going to play devil's advocate here.

It is an affiliate's responsibility to scale WODs to accommodate clients who cannot do them Rx. However, is it also their responsibility to completely...

Re: Stall Mat Cleaning and Hanging Barbells

How come I didn't know about that page?!?! Lisa and Mike are geniuses!

BTW, that's not PVC pipe, it's ABS. Don't try that with the white PVC, it breaks pretty easy but the ABS is more pliable.

Re: A crossfit online store.

My only tip is to not use the name "CrossFit" anywhere in your web address or company name.

Re: Level 1 Testing and Certification...extra $1000 every 5 years?

Well obviously HQ says who is qualified to open a box and represent the CrossFit name, so if they say a Lvl1 is enough that's up to them. I'm just saying there's more to providing people with health...
