CrossFit Alpha Website Re-Vamp and Re Launch!

We have completely retooled the website and infused it heavily with dynamic content, putting it more in line with what we want it to accomplish. As we grow, so does the website and the content that we publish and produce.

Check it out at http://www.crossfitalpha.com and let us know your thoughts.

The site looks great!

I'm over in NW Alabama. One day I'll make the trip.

I take it you survived the storms the other night? We had it too but not as bad.

Im down in Florence frequently. Working at Eliza Coffee memorial.

The website looks excellent. Keep up the good work. I sent you an e-mail through your website with a few questions that I have.

Re: CrossFit Alpha Website Re-Vamp and Re Launch!

chris is doing something pretty innovative with his site and an integration with LogsItAll. Basically he figured out that by having his athletes create a profile and start logging their workouts in the system, he can then embed their workouts in real time right into his website using a logsitall feed - giving him pretty cool dynamic content for his site. you can see this in action by visiting www.crossfitalpha.com and scrolling down to see tabata squat standings... carolinacrossfit.org, run jump lift and diablo crossfit are all working on the same thing - but so far Chris has gotten the farthest...

the code to do this looks like a snarl but basically you just paste this into your blog/site:

<IFRAME id="frmStandings" NAME="standings_frame" WIDTH=100% HEIGHT=200 src="http://www.logsitall.com/stats-embedded.asp?ai=34&mi=10&mil=45&mvl=Tabata%20Squat s&gender=&ag=&mmx=max"><br />
</IFRAME>

Re: CrossFit Alpha Website Re-Vamp and Re Launch!

Bill,

Thanks for this.

I would like to add on to what you are saying about the iFrame code.

If someone uses this code in their blog, they may need to adjust the height/width parameters that the frame is displayed in.

They can adjust this by tweaking the numbers in this portion of the code {WIDTH=100% HEIGHT=200}

This is a great tool!

Re: CrossFit Alpha Website Re-Vamp and Re Launch!

I like the whole setup

The integration with logsitall.com is a pretty cool idea.
