Potomac CrossFit - away we go!!!!

So our affiliation got approved, haven't sent the paperwork back as I'm still working on finalizing our location. Working in the Washington DC and Northern Virginia area is tough b/c of the commercial real estate market, but we're making progress.

Mainly just wanted to reach out to the local and global CF community and say thanks for everything. Especially Tom Brose, CrossFit DC; Jerry Hill, CrossFit Oldtown; and Zeke from CrossFit Coastal (who saved my a$$ on the website stuff).

Would like to hear any feedback on the site so far, www.potomaccrossfit.com.

See everybody at VA Beach next week!

SF,
Brian

Re: Potomac CrossFit - away we go!!!!

Congrats and good luck!

IMHO- you may want to clearly identify that Coach Glassman is not a Coach at your affiliate. It may be just the way I am reading it, but it appears to include him in the "us" parts of the "about us" portion of your website.

About Us
CrossFit was started in 1995 by Coach Greg Glassman with that heartfelt belief in mind. It all started at a maverick gym in Santa Cruz and quickly spread to Olympic and professional athletes, police and military special operations units, champion mixed martial artists, and (like most of us here at Potomac CrossFit) everyday people looking for something more exciting then arm curls and leg extensions.

CrossFit workouts are functional, varied and intense. They also scale to any ability level–our members range from elite athletes to eighty-something grandmothers–so whatever shape you’re starting from, you’ll be able to jump right in.

All of us here at Potomac Crossfit want to help you improve the quality of your life and show you that being in shape and exercising can be a lot of fun and not a chore.

From the beginning to the end of each day, we strive to give people quality instruction, motivation and compassion in order to help people achieve a level of fitness they never believed was possible. And that’s what we’ll continue to do-very happily.

The changes in your life and ours will be noticeable, positive and significant. You are a major part of making it happen, every time you come in.
Obviously, reasonable minds could interpret that differently.

Re: Potomac CrossFit - away we go!!!!

Good to know there is another affiliate coming to this increasingly affiliate rich area. All the ones that I have met so far have been amazing, and truly helpful in all endevors. Tom Brose, Jesse Woody, and Mike Krivka have all been truly great to me and my Marines with support, guidance, and help. Its great to have another one opening up around here. Best of luck, and hopefully I will get out to your space and learn some more fantastic stuff from another affiliate here!

Re: Potomac CrossFit - away we go!!!!

This might be because I am using Mozilla Firefox - the site looks fine at the top, but the formatting gets all weird and things are shoved to the left side as you get further down. It looks great in IE, though.
