Re: Box owners, how do you market?

3 things that worked well for me getting the first 20 members (20 is where I find the word of mouth really picks up) at 3 gyms now.

Re: Equipment List for Garage Gym

Looks good, but I would skip the 70lbs KBs and get more med balls instead, especially 14 and 20 pounders. Maybe another set of Squat stands - they are cheap and give you another mobile space to...

Re: Crossfit in my garage w/friends...problem?

There are a few non-profits like that around - there is a fair amount of work involved in setting up and running one, and since the box still tends to revolve around 1 or 2 coaches there is little...
