Scratch the last, I see there is a whole other thread on the economy
Anyway, I've always thought Crossfit (and our boot camp) work because people hate signing up for a 3 year contract with Globo Gym...so I've always said we'd do something different...punch cards seem to be filling that niche right now, but I can see how the month-to-month or even a year contract might work.
I mean the guy nearest to our location is charging $50.00 per hour. Even at the highest price presented in this thread, that's 6 sessions ($299) in a month, vs. unlimited sessions with Crossfit!!
