Market Research Survey *Need your assistance*

- Currently I am developing a business plan for a future CrossFit facility/affiliate.

- To assist me in the market analysis portion of the plan I am developing a couple of surveys. One trying to determine who are CrossFit athletes and another geared towards lessons learned from current affiliates.

- I am creating these surveys through Zoomerang, an online survey development and analysis tool.

- Once I have compiled the questions and created the surveys I would like the CrossFit community's assistance in distributing and taking the survey.

- In return I will make the results of the survey available to the CrossFit community.

- I believe with the support of the community all of us, participants, current and future affiliates can benefit greatly from the information obtained through this survey.

- I am acutely aware that there is a lot of information out there that I don't know that I don't know about. This is where I need your help now. What should I be asking current and potential CrossFit victims?

-Below is a list of questions that I have brainstormed on my own. If you could look them over and make suggestions about additional questions or changes to current questions that would be greatly appreciated.

- Try to limit open ended questions.

- When supplying multiple choice questions list the available choices also.

- I intend to open the survey within 2 weeks.

- I have the ability to create several surveys so if ideas come up for additional surveys that might be helpful I am all ears.

- I will post another thread pertaining to affiliates later.

- In defense of the questions below they were compiled during a brainstorm session so not all of these questions will be used.
