Re: CrossFit is Suing the NSCA

Skiing, pick-up basketball and golf need to be banned too! If people get injured it must be stopped.

Re: Building your Affiliates Facebook page?

Curious as I'm fairly new to managing a FB page...how do you get a dump of all your 'Likes' email addresses? Is that easily done or one by one?

Many thanks.

Re: MindBody vs ZenPlanner

Adam - I'd love to know more about your software. We use PaySimple and I don't believe there's a contract I'm held to. They've been great to work with. Believe it or not, even one year in, I don't...

Re: MindBody vs ZenPlanner

I'm on ZP with little to complain about. Did a H2H comparison vs. Mindbody and chose ZP. Happy with my choice. I am always interested in what else is out there but once you're plugged in with one...

Re: LegalZoom and Other Legal Mumbo Jumbo

Used a company called NOLO. Basically LegalZoom-esque. Was a piece of cake and their prices were better.

Re: New York affiliate in search of a Coach

Thanks Brian. I'm certainly reaching out through social media.

We've received some interest but are still searching for coaches.

Re: Please critique my logo

Charlene - congrats on the affiliation! Awesome location.

Logo version one was much better in my opinion. The newer font won't play well in other media/t-shirts. I like the simpler version much...

Re: Building your Affiliates Facebook page?

I think CF marketing is a little different and not so "text book". Social media presence is really important as it helps both build your existing community as well as attract new athletes. With...

Re: Building your Affiliates Facebook page?

Mike- yes... pretty sure it doesn't matter if you submitted it already. You can keep trying to change it even once it's picked. This worked for me and several other affiliates I know. Good luck!

Re: Building your Affiliates Facebook page?

Mike - I'm assuming your annoyance is that your box fb name can't have the cap 'F'?

Facebook has a thing against mid word caps but it is possible. Ours has it as do most...it just takes some...

Re: Has anyone tried Fitaid?

We stock it and our athletes really like it. I have one per day with lunch as an alternative to constant H2O. It's not a magic potion but it's a tasty drink with some good supplements.

People don't care about 4k square feet. You won't have enough people to warrant that much space anyway. Equipment will be fine if you have what you need for the size...

We debated this issue right up until the day we opened. At the last minute we added the 2/wk option. We are still offering 2, 3 and unlimited. Looking back it has worked out fantastic! 2 days has...
