Started the process..

I have begun the affiliation process. I sent in my essay and application last night. I actually had plans on affiliating early in 2009 but all of a sudden the two or three guys I had been training with has grown to 12 with new people asking about it or stopping by daily. I have secured about 1500 sq. ft. of industrial space which will be getting prepped next weekend. I'm also set to order an affiliate package from The Garage Gym Store. Fingers are crossed and the leg work continues...

Good luck bro. When I come over the Allegator Alley I will stop by. If you have any questions dont hesitate to contact me. Been open for 1 month and reaching 30 clients. Lots of good people in this biz that will give you good advise.
We need more CrossFit Gyms in Florida. I am setting up a SWAT Challenge for Fight Gone Bad so if you got any hooks in Collier County get them guys involved.

Thanks Steven, I'll get with you soon and maybe set up a day when I can get over there to see you. 3-4 of the guys have been through FGB and loved it. I'm sure we could put something together, these guys are rabid.

This sounds great... Gives a place for the wife and I to visit when we get to visit home (wife's hometown). Where are you going to be at in Naples?

Re: Started the process..

Yeah, born and raised (a rare find). Im originally from Central FL but we visit Naples more than Orlando so its great that there will be an affiliate a little closer than Ft Myers. Of course it puts a damper on my goal of opening the first affiliate there when we move back, but Im glad someone is doing it. Its definitely an area that can support a thriving box I think.

Anthony,

Congratulations man. We usually go to Sarasota for our summer vacation and I visit Crossfit Gulf Coast. Frank is a great guy... Now we'll have another summer destination that includes CF.
