Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Absolutely. It drives me nuts. It does nothing to benefit the community.

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

I can understand that - it's your message board, after all.

I would have appreciated an open discussion, and an open environment in which to discuss/debate. It would have been simple enough to...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Umm, I posted the Youtube video here that we all received via email from Mr. Kelly and Ms. Glassman for those that haven't seen it yet.

It was annotated as WFS.

It appears to have been deleted....

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Damn. That's unbelievable.

If that's how things went down, I am glad that 50% ownership of HQ is going elsewhere. Just wish it wasn't going where it's going.

Although with that kind of...

She's still an affiliate owner, right?

I agree, $20mil for half of CrossFit seems cheap.

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Completely agree - you cannot trust anything that they say. Their entire purpose is ROI by any means necessary. Anybody heard of Bain Capital? Jeez.

I respect Lauren's post, and am glad she spoke...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

I also agree that this is not the way to communicate this to us, the affiliate owners.

A legitimate threat deserves more than a message board post.

Forgive my ignorance, but how does buying a...

We used ramsets for ours - tacked them down in the corners. Faster than tapcons.

Re: A response to Whole 9's recent series

I agree- I stopped paying attention to them a long time ago - for some of the same reasons that I have nearly stopped paying attention to Robb. Definitely do not want to open that can of worms at all...

Re: Use Of URL- affiliate violation

We dealt with the same thing as well. HQ lawyer will get in touch, and you'll need to go through a domain transfer process. Takes some time but they cannot keep it from you. If you're chomping at the...

Re: Following a dream

Definitely. A huge part of a successful gym is the culture - you need to get some experience of what that's like - more than one gym, I'd say. Get deep into one, but visit some others. Secondly, you...

Re: Who has ownership of FGB?

I can totally get behind this as well. There should have at least been an official email that went out. I'm glad we hadn't signed up yet.

Re: Heating PVC

Just keep the heat low. It doesn't take much. And make sure to fill with sand or it will wrinkle horribly. My rings are going strong 5 years later.

Re: Management/Check-in/Billing Software

Re: grand opening advice

Charity event. We chose to benefit the DAV ( which I wouldn't recommend, Wounded Warriors is much better). It's a cause everyone can get behind, and it's a great opportunity to show the big...

Re: $40 per month, unlimited access, no training

I can see a number of huge problems with this.
1. you will see huge rates of injury - I cannot imagine how you will work out insurance. When these people get hurt, you have poisoned the well. These...

Re: Globo-gym vs. CrossFit

Have no fear of the globo. The very fact that they have 4,000 members means that never, ever, even in their best day and your worst, will they offer anything close to what you do.

Re: Battling ropes -- yes or no?

I think they are fine as a warmup exercise but as a WOD exercise, no. They fakll into that grey area - like slam balls - where it is difficult to determine the intensity with which you are doing the...

Re: Current take on Groupon/LivingSocial etc.

Casey, thanks much. I'd definitely have it capped pretty low so that it doesn't overrun the gym and set it up so that it expires quickly and if you take even one class the coupon is redeemed.
