Re: How to have a successful CrossFit

Nothing wrong with that at all I think. But from a business perspective, the average CrossFitter is the one that makes up the majority of the membership, and thus the revenue.

Blair, I also agree with Laurie. Our one-on-ones had very low rentention. Funnily enough, allowing people to try a group class out (which is what we did in the beginning) also had low retention. ...

If you don't want to change the width of your blog column, then just change the width of the videos when you embed them. You'll have to change the height too of course, to ensure it...
