Still leaning towards Spartan Athletics, Cross Fit Kanata

Neither are taken at the moment. I will probably sending off a search this week in Ontario to see if I can use either.

Re: Possible Cross Fit Affiliate Names

Everyone refers to iron in their CrossFit names, but don't we like to drop our weights from time to time?

CrossFit Rubber!!!

I have just been made ware of your plans, and as a NCR guy, support it all the way. That being said, I was kinda surprised to see Kanata in the name. Is that where you plan on setting up? Isn't that where CrossFit Ottawa is already located? I haven't been there but seem to recall it being somwehere in the West of town. I had been considering an East End (Orleans area) affiliate in my own little dream world. No where near execution, but starting to consider the possibilities.

Re: Possible Cross Fit Affiliate Names

This thread is getting a lot of attention, so I will jump on it.

My college buddies and I used to call our workout group "Team Savage" back in the day, so I went with it...

In January of this year I registered "CrossFit Team Savage"

Now, as I am thinking about growing out of my garage, to a bigger box, I am thinking that some "future" clients may shy away from "Team Savage"

Any thoughts on that?

Re: Possible Cross Fit Affiliate Names

Thanks, anyone else have input?

With over 1300 affiliates, city/location names are mostly gone...

So I throw 2 questions out there:

- Should the name have universal appeal in order to not exclude any customer?

- Or, since the CrossFit program is not for everyone, chose a name to match the expected client?
