Re: Painstorm - February '10

This is just a prediction, but I think we'll see the best times posted with 10 reps of power snatch @ 100#.

All 5 rounds averaging 1:50-2:10.

Just my guess...

Re: SealFit??

I don't program for SealFit, but here's my take:

Guys who prep for BUD/S or who are Operators need to be durable, which I would define as having the capacity to perform high-volume exercise...

Re: Best Affiliate Programming (WOD's and Websites)

I think it was said before, but to determine which affiliates have the best programming, you need to find out what they are programming for.

SealFit would not be good for a football player (hell,...

Re: Huge Decline in Quality

Right...I'll never be afraid of a globo-gym opening CF type classes because I know CrossFit Las Vegas will always be better than that. Am I worried about an affiliate with inexperienced trainers...

Re: Huge Decline in Quality

Isn't that what we want? A globo-gym with CF Certified trainers walking around and everyone in the gym doing functional movements at a rate of $20-30 per month? HELL YES.

As an affiliate owner,...

Re: Huge Decline in Quality

I'm not sure the difference between scoring a workout or doing a workout for time? Both are score based.. in the timed workout, your score IS your time.

Or are we talking about something...

Re: Huge Decline in Quality

Yes, Shane. I had meant to convey that JUST because someone has a 14:00 min 5k, doesn't mean they've obtained fitness. If they were to demonstrate that run time along with all the other physical...

Re: Huge Decline in Quality

Yup. That is assuming that they ALWAYS train that way, though. Maybe they are only like that during the Games and other serious competition. The more often you deviate from safe mechanics, the...

Re: Huge Decline in Quality

I will agree with J. Thomas in most cases. Safety and consistency in mechanics should be a priority - but there will always be two groups in CrossFit, because of the competitive nature of the WODs...

Man, I just re-read my post.
I come off like a total ***hole.
Sorry for that, it isn't intentional.

Re: Huge Decline in Quality

So a runner is trying to get faster times in a 5k. Is he trying to become more fit? Not necessarily. Strength and coordination and agility are all aspects of fitness...but are not needed for a...

Re: Huge Decline in Quality

My apologies. This is what I meant...I was too abbreviated with my explanation.

Fitness = work capacity across broad time, modal, and age domains.

Re: Huge Decline in Quality

Lots of generalized usage of the word "fit" and "fitness" here....

Fitness = works capacity. Hands down. Period. Any way you look at it.

If a runner is concerned with running faster than he...

Re: new affiliates bad for crossfit?

Personally, I would definitely try and dissuade some with only a few months of CrossFit experience from opening an affiliate - and for multiple reasons.

Re: Mind Body Online Yes or No

We use MBO and it has been one of the best decisions we've made so far. It saves us a TON of time handling membership tracking/payments.

You can give each person a barcode and have them swipe a...

Re: The Economics of Membership Pricing

I agree, Wade. Many affiliates are charging $150+ with a Level 1 cert and no training experience...it is arrogant of them to think they are worth that.

I'd be happy if the standard req. for...

Re: The Economics of Membership Pricing

Glad my post helped, Celio. Just keep in mind, a successful affiliate - a sucessful small business, for that matter - will not occur if it tries to cater to everyone. Unless you have a good amount...

Re: The Economics of Membership Pricing

We charge $150 per month for unlimited training.
We also have a membership $95 per month for 3x/week training.

MinbodyOnline for membership management/point of sale and QuickBooks for budget planning/cash flow management. That's what we do and it's working quite nicely.
