I know it would be an easier question to answer if I were the main trainer, and putting all my work hours towards the affiliate, but I cannot.
So to start, any suggestions on hours to be open? I know eventually the students will dictate the times that we will be open, but what about from day 1?
I was toying with 8-11am, then 4-7pm; that sounds like alot of class time at the beginning. I plan to pay trainers, $20-25/hr when teaching, and perhaps $10 at the start when there is no one there, but to at least have a body there if someone does come by to check out the box.
When we first open, I want to avoid no one being there when a potential client comes knocking.
Any suggestions?
Brian, contact Eric at CrossFit Fuel. He is a DC and runs 2 CFs. I am sure he can give you some great advise.
