Congratulations on the publicity!

Classic line...

"Chase calls those other gyms “preschools” and added that people who have plateaued at other gyms could find another level of exercise at Mt. Baker CrossFit."

i think that Skip is so successful b/c he capitalizes on multiple opportunities to reinforce his very positive message, which just so happens to be a compelling sales pitch as well.

congrats skip!

Rebekah,
You are doing awesome. I am so proud of you. You are only 5 weeks into this new 'journey'. You train hard and intense every time you enter the door. Don't change anything, and be patient.

The fire is already present, and it is in your heart! You are a wonderful example and success story. I see you as a future trainer/affiliate owner.
