Re: Redefining the relationship between Power and Intensity

I want to know if others agree with me that Intensity and Power are correlated rather than bring exactly equal to each other.

I also want to know if others think that it would be positive to update...

Re: Redefining the relationship between Power and Intensity

The question came up for me because I revalidated my L1 last weekend and they are still saying that Intensity ≣ Power, where the triple bar indicates strict equivalence, or that Intensity defines...

Re: Redefining the relationship between Power and Intensity

Thanks for this! You are of course correct that they are equivalent within this single, narrow context. Even so, I think that my suggestion (that Power and Intensity are correlates, rather than one...

The terms "force", "work", "distance", "time", "power", "area", and "intensity" all have well-defined meanings within the field of physics, and the relationships between these terms are precisely...

Re: Now that Anthos is defeated let's take a look into this

I suspect that Mr. John would be best positioned to answer that question. I also suspect that if he didn't think that it was worth his while that he would get out of the business.

Re: Now that Anthos is defeated let's take a look into this

It seems to me that Mr. John could own or be responsible for everything other than the affiliation license for a number of gyms. I suspect that there are plenty of L1 certificate holders out there...

Re: Now that Anthos is defeated let's take a look into this

Russell,

Point by point:

Rules - During August and September (prior to opening) the Affiliate in question was involved in marketing activities that were clearly outside of the scope of the...

Re: Now that Anthos is defeated let's take a look into this

Russell,

I'll address your two specific questions first:

1. Show us what rules we have failed to enforce that this Affiliate is breaking.

We are not aware of any at present.

2. Explain why...

Re: Now that Anthos is defeated let's take a look into this

We would have preferred some kind of answer to our letter from October 19, but we are almost done here. I'll be finished with an answer to Russell and wrap this up from our side very soon.

Re: Now that Anthos is defeated let's take a look into this

Russell,

One of the realities of our local market is that a significant percentage of employers offer free or subsidized gym memberships as part of their compensation packages. The larger gym chains...

Re: Now that Anthos is defeated let's take a look into this

Russell,

Thanks again for your reply.

We have been under the impression that the intent behind the affiliate agreement was to give individual trainers a good way to become independent business...

Re: Now that Anthos is defeated let's take a look into this

Greg,

Our letter from October 19 reflects our interpretation of the meaning behind the affiliate agreement and some possible ways to provide additional protection for those meanings. Of course, we...

Re: Now that Anthos is defeated let's take a look into this

Andrew,

Thanks for your comment. You mentioned that your biggest fear was that the major globo-gym in your town would figure out that they could affiliate, but you didn't think that it would...

Re: Now that Anthos is defeated let's take a look into this

Russell,

Thanks for your concise answers.

Affiliation rights are indeed granted to individuals, but there is at present no mechanism for controlling that the individual bears any true financial or...

Re: Now that Anthos is defeated let's take a look into this

Russell,

I'm willing to concede that you understand the points that we have been trying to make, and understand that you do not believe that they have merit. Agreeing to disagree about those things...

Re: Now that Anthos is defeated let's take a look into this

Controlling what others do is impossible, but many of the affiliate owners who have been in contact with me on this have been instrumental in building the brand locally. Their success is what has...

Re: Now that Anthos is defeated let's take a look into this

Matt, your point makes sense if each corporate globo-gym works as a truly independent franchise, but I suspect that leadership for multiple corporate-owned facilities might have a different take on...

Re: Now that Anthos is defeated let's take a look into this

Matt, thanks for calling me out on that one. I was in a hurry this morning and should have paid more attention. Sorry about that.

Just to make things clear, I'm completely in favor of as many people...

Re: Now that Anthos is defeated let's take a look into this

Larry, it is my understanding that those types of potential infractions should be reported at http://iptheft.crossfit.com

Legal does good work and Dale's team is very good at following up.
