Does anyone have any expierence with using a gym to run crossfit workouts? What was the finacial arrangement? How did you approach the owners and how did you market?

Dolph Right now I am getting ready to embark on a new venture with the gym I work for. I presented the idea of running two weekend sessions of what we call Weekend Warrior to the fitness director. She told me to run with it so I am putting together 5 weeks worth of workouts to run for the weekend class with groups of 4-6. I am getting 50% of the sale of the classes. I am considered an independent contractor but the gym covers me with insurance as long as I am on the premises. They also cover the advertising and administration. I basically developed the program and run the class. Hope this helps.
