Start-Up Success CrossFit Box-Biz Seminar

John, CrossFit LA-Biz Seminar, just thought I would let you guys know. I went to your business seminar in Austin and have been using your business peripherals, forms and intro-session concept and contacts since we opened. We have been open officially for 4 weeks yesterday.

We have had 30 intro-sessions and have enrolled 24 out of the 30 within
a week after each intro. We are using your intro-session method,
following up with one contact method after the session, using the
enrollment in a CrossFit School of Fitness concept, and using 6 month
contracts with auto-debit or EFT. We also have incorporated for the
start of our gym a Founder's type membership for the first 25 members
that enrolled in our gym. This is a discounted unlimited membership
that has created great buzz around our gym! We are beginning to now
enroll people in regular membership rates and still having success. In
fact, today I have two more intros with two police officers who have
already agreed to enroll.

After 4 weeks of operations we are at a positive cash flow level for
the second month of business. I plan to get involved in your business blog
as soon as I can see the light of day. We also just started using
mind body software and will be contacting you to help us on implementing

I just wanted to say thanks for the business seminar and your efforts.
It is good to see sometimes the fruit of our labor!
