Smile Affiliation

Hi everyone!

I have a question I hope someone can answer. I am planning on becoming an affiliate shortly after certification in January. Does anyone know how long the affiliation process takes? Besides filling out the application and paying, what else is involved? I'd like to get started right away. Thanks!

Andrew

Re: Affiliation

Affiliation process didn't take me very long at all. These are in no particular order: Insurance (can't affiliate unless this is taken care of), location, zoning laws in your city, equipment, website (CrossFit Journal logo). There are many other small things but it all depends on your situation.

Re: Affiliation

Affiliation itself is pretty quick. Once you send in the insurance, information on the location, your application and the fee, it's really fast. Within a week I think for me. The hardest part was coming up with decent insurance, finding a spot, and getting enough equipment to get started. Best of luck in your new adventure.

Amen. And coming up with a decent name.
