I'm doing it! ... Affiliation

After much thought, consideration, prayer, and discussion with my husband, I've decided to apply for an affiliate. I've been working at a local affiliate for a few months, and I enjoyed it a ton and learned a lot. Now I feel a calling to be an affiliate owner and spread the CrossFit love!

Wish me luck, and keep your eyes peeled for CrossFit NRV ---- Blacksburg, VA is in the New River Valley!

Re: I'm doing it! ... Affiliation

Thanks guys!

Dan, the steps I've taken include getting insurance, I'm about to submit my application with HQ, and I bought a little equipment to start. I'll be operating out of my garage at first, so that will help me keep costs down. Today I'm going to spend a little more money - plywood for jump boxes, check out the local thrift stores for any bargains,that type of thing. I need to enter the world of websites, which is completely foreign to me. Fortunately, one of my nieces is a freshman at Virginia Tech, and she knows some computer engineering students who might be able to help me out.

I have my first appointment tomorrow afternoon.

Brad, even if the water is cold, I'll keep swimming to warm things up!!
