Globo-gym vs. CrossFit

This morning I received a call from a trainer that is starting a "circuit" workout like CrossFit at the globo gym down the road. It has 4,000 members and we have 100. We have barely been open a month and have taken a few of their members. The only advertisement that we have done is business cards, signs, and tshirts and what ever free stuff that we can get. I know for some people this could be completely upsetting or intimidating, but I see it as a challenge to offer the very best at our CrossFit. So today we are going to step up or game even more. I believe in CrossFit and the change that it brings in people. Our community is different than any other out there!!

What was the purpose of the call?

Have no fear of the globo. The very fact that they have 4,000 members means that never, ever, even in their best day and your worst, will they offer anything close to what you do.

Re: Globo-gym vs. CrossFit

I agree 100% with Jason - they can't even come close - for instance, will teach muscle ups ? Snatches ? Cleans and Jerks ? Will they use prowlers, tires, sledge hammers ?

Quality, not quantity.

It was a guy that came and worked out a few times when we were still doing workouts outside for free. He is a local Physical Therapist in town and said he was doing it as a courtesy call. My response is that I want people to be healthier and that I wasn't worried. No matter what kind of circuit training they are offering it still isn't going to compare to our box. We love and care about our people and their health. Community is what our box is about. We want people to be healthier and live more fulfilling lives whether it be at our box or down the road.
