Re: What's up with the Crossfit Wikipedia entry?

Wikipedia's current model is unsustainable. For confirmation, here is the abstract of an academic paper with no fewer than 138 (count 'em!) footnotes.

What Makes A Great Teacher (and Trainer?)

There's a great article in this month's issue of The Atlantic on what makes a great teacher. Methinks many of the same things apply to trainers. There are some interesting parallels to how CrossFit...

Re: Mike Caviston

Mr. Caviston's critique is neither thoughtful nor important.

He says he has studied CrossFit extensively and has sat in on seminars. Yet he writes that CrossFit prescribes the same weights for...

Re: Dot com versus local

Dale:

I had no idea you were a fellow Canuck. And you became a Marine. Now, the allergy to BS all makes sense!

BTW, Mike Warkentin of the CrossFit Journal and I ran into the Fitzgerald brothers at...

This is one of the most astute posts on bulletin boards I have ever seen.

Bottom line: whatever its frustrations and limitations, this board still serves a purpose, especially for newbies.....

Re: Dot com versus local

In a previous life, I produced open line television programs. I have also been active in online communities for more than 15 years as both a moderator and participant.

In every case, it's a truism...

Re: Dot com versus local

I agree with Barry and Ron. The community is evolving.

My Toronto affiliate is one of the first 50 of 1,500 affiliates. It's just moved for the fourth time in four years to a 10,000 square foot...

Re: Getting the Most out of Social Media

I agree. The blog post is outstanding. Read it.

A few more ideas:

You can use Facebook newsfeeds and Twitter posts as a sort of virtual whiteboard updater. Example: "Tim just moved to the top of...

Re: College student on Paleo/Zone

Two more things.

Chicken thighs are much cheaper than breasts and almost as good.

You can also make tuna burgers on the Foreman grill. Add an egg, a few drops of worcester sauce, flax seed, onion,...

Re: College student on Paleo/Zone

Here are some more low budget ideas. They do require some equipment purchase, but will add variety to your diet.

1) BEANS
A much neglected category. At a bulk store, dry beans cost less than a...

Re: Suggestions on our website

Looks very good to me!

I'd just modify the wording of the "philosophy" section. There are too many unexplained and unfamiliar phrases. It is not written in plain English. So it will make little...

Re: Affiliate Websites

Douglas, I don't think you are doing everything wrong.

A good website should help you run the business the way you want it to run.
It shouldn't dictate any particular strategy. But it should...

Re: Affiliate Websites

In some ways, "what software platform do you use?" is the wrong question.The right question is: "what content should you put on your site -- and how does it promote your business?"

Re: Contracts v. prepaying

Have you read the fine print in the Verizon offer? There may be a whopping cancellation charge. Or there may be super high per minute charges.

Re: Contracts v. prepaying

Thanks for the thanks. One correction. At my gym, you can't cancel anytime on 30 days notice. You can cancel after at least four months on 30 days notice.
