Please critique my Yelp.com profile for my business

btw, I' signed up for the CF cert that takes place end of November so I'll be able to legitimately call my stuff CrossFit.

Sorry, I don't have much experience with Yelp so I can't help you with that.

But, you should know, that only affiliates can call what they do CF. After you pass the Cert. You can call yourself a CF Trainer. They send you information telling you exactly what/how you can advertise.

Your best bet is to call it Performance Based Personal Training provided by a CF L1 Trainer.

well honestly I wasn't going to advertise as a cf trainer anyway.. too many people have the wrong idea of what crossfit is.. but once I get them in, I like to legitimately call myself a crossfit trainer.

- You forgot a d in the first toned about women doing pushups.
- I think you need a good pic of yourself. The backside with the bar is cool, and the results pic is good. But a good face or waist up shot would be nice.

cool, I fixed the typo.. so just for now, do you think what I have for my avatar on here would be ok? I dont know if it's distinguishable but it was taken at a party. Definitely not appropriate if they could tell.

Funny story about the pic w/the bar. I was standing exactly like that staring off into the distance while I was waiting for my client to come back from his run when I noticed a girl start to pass me up, then stop, back up and then just stand behind me by about 10 feet

when I turned around she told me she was a photographer and it would be a cool image.. unfortunately I don't think she envisioned the dang building though.

I like that you say straight up, "this will be hard."

It doesn't look like you're just out to get money by selling people a "quick fix." I think that the type of clients you want are aware that it's worth every penny BECAUSE it's not easy.

Yep, I think it is a great face pic.
Like I said the bar one is pretty cool too.

I think you are not wearing any pants in your bathroom pic though

Re: Please critique my Yelp.com profile for my business

Maybe some action pics? I would go with pullups or at the top of a Thruster or Push press with the weight overhead.
Possibly something with you working with a client?

yes, I definitely need action pics w/clients.. but I know that though they'd do a lot to help me, some of my clients wouldn't feel comfortable having their pics on my website, others however, would love to.

I just can't distinguish between the two. And I'm afraid of asking because I don' t want to put them in an awkward position.
