It's run 3 days/week for 4 weeks. So yes, there are rest days. We've run it here both as Mon, Wed, Thu and MWF.

Thank you for the post!

Love being reminded that clients' CF progress is a long steady ramp up.... not a cliff climb

I'm lucky enough to be mentored by Kurtis and Laurie from Rainier - so everytime I'm working a Cert with them I'm just picking their brains on how to be better - they've started using this, with fantastic results. I'm going this direction within the week - Robb and Nikki, thanks for putting so much hard work in early and being so generous with us latecomers!

Awesome.

Re: CrossFit On-Ramp Curriculum Published for Free

For anyone that has implemented this;

I am a single trainer facility. Do you run only one class per month, or do you run them every other month at different times.

It seems as though it would be a problem if a person had to wait three wekks or more to get into the next class.

How would you deal with this?

I run part time, evenings only.

Re: CrossFit On-Ramp Curriculum Published for Free

Hi Neil-
I run 2 a month, a morning and an evening. You could just do an evening, 3 nights a week. I was worried about having people wait 3 weeks too. I always have a few people join after the first day which is fine with me. I just need to catch them up on the squat and push-up which we review daily anyway. The 3 weeks goes by quick, builds anticipation, and so far no complaints. I mean you wait for soccer to start, right? This is no different.

There is the risk that since people want it NOW and are likely to change their minds or go somewhere else that you may lose a person. I look at it like "thats OK because the ones who start with me will stick with me because they get an awesome program from the beginning which is structured for their success." We may lose a person in the short term but the ones we start stick better. Our retention rate from 1 on 1's was less than 30%. So far we've kept 19 of 22 On Rampers.

It seems scary but once its up and rolling its awesome!

Laurie

Re: CrossFit On-Ramp Curriculum Published for Free

Wow, 1 on 1's has that low of a retention rate? I've seen similar things at other affiliates but that is eye opening. Do you think this is due to the group dynamic?
