Re: Closed vs Open Gym Model

Because a business owner can't afford to pay someone to sit in the gym 4 hours a day, 5 days a week (20 hours, $8/hour=$160/week, $640/month) on the off chance that someone happens in to do 20...

Re: Closed vs Open Gym Model

Not at all, it's business.
The function of our gym, and hopefully most CrossFit gyms, is to provide training. Are you suggesting that your gym is just a slightly better Globogym? For both your...

Re: Closed vs Open Gym Model

I obviously wasn't clear. Sorry for the confusion.

The PT and Design options are in addition to the regular program classes you're already in. It's not more of the same, it's higher level,...

Re: Closed vs Open Gym Model

:(

We don't run an equipment rental business or a big empty space filled with used gym gear, we run a Training Facility. If you want to practice or learn something come in for Personal Training...

Re: Bringing up paleo with strangers?

Personal testimony works great. "I used to have the same problem. Sucks, huh? I stopped eating grains for 30 days and everything got better. You might try that and see what happens." Or "I have a...

Ceiling mounted pull up rig

We want to mount a 30'x9' pull up station hung from the concrete ceiling in our gym. I'm curious about designs you've used or seen for this. I'm picturing a set of double bars with spacers between...

Re: Need a used No Limits Timer

One last try, I promise.

These are totally worth the full price but I'm a cheap bastard. Somewhere out there is a NLT in a box in a garage. You've relocated and/or decided to join a box, you've...

Need a used No Limits Timer

I've looked for these on ebay and Craigslist and haven't found any. Somebody out there has to have one of these they're not using anymore. Let me know in a PM and we'll talk.

Thanks!

Re: Can anyone please point me to some pro-meat research?

No, it isn't. Your "friend" simply wants you to defend what your doing because of - pick one or more - jealousy of your results, intellectual laziness, if he believes you he'll have to change...

Re: How to Avoid Bruised Shins on the Deadlift

I wear a pair of ski socks that have extra padding on the shin. They're not as bulky as sweats and thicker than tape. They're marked DeFeet, not sure where they came from, they were a gift.

Re: Question about Hi-Temp 10# Bumpers

The problem is that even just loaded on a 45# bar the plates will fold - "taco" - and the rubber begins to break, the inserts get loose and eventually fall out. It happens really quickly in warm...

Re: CrossFit Seniors

Adam,
I love your passion and commitment. I feel, however, the idea of a formal CF Seniors program is misplaced.

I'm assuming we're talking about a program similar to CF Kids but for elders. If...

Re: Price Plan

I suggest 1/4 prevailing area PT rates; if that rate is $60 (crazy cheap) then $15/session for however many sessions per month (or 4 week program). For example, on the 3x/week program $180 (3...
