New CrossFit promotional video - feedback please

We've been working on a promotional video for several months and it's almost done. If you have a few minutes, please take a look and give us some feedback. We have a couple more clips to add and a few to remove before the final version is ready. Please excuse the choppy video at the beginning, it will be cleaned up during the next edit.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDZtGhlVxvM w/f safe except for three minor curse words, one at 1:17 another at 3:09 and one at the very end. The 3:09 will be bleaped out in final release. The closing comment is a classic.

Thanks.

I like the fact that the video shows real people not just the super fit that everyone is trying to become. I think that it shows how crossfit can be scaled to everyone.

LOL at the quote at the end of the video

I love it. I laughed out loud when the guy said, "This is kicking my ***"! Great video, great job.

That ending was the icing on the cake! Primo video. I loved all of it. That before and after picture was amazing. That guy looked fantastic. And yes, what a diverse group of real people.

Do you HAVE to bleep out the little cuss words? Will this be aired on television. I don't know, they don't bother me and I think it adds something to the video....because....most of us talk that way .

I like it.

I see why you want to bleep it, but most people would not be offended.

Can't wait to see the finished product.

Re: New CrossFit promotional video - feedback please

Nice video, Bill.



A little polishing and it will be set to go.

I agree that you did a good job showing a wide variety of folks in it, instead of just the fire breathers of your gym - which would have been a mistake, IMHO.

Keep us posted when you finish it!

Re: New CrossFit promotional video - feedback please

Great video Bill. Like it was mentioned above....just a little polishing and it will be good to go. It is funny, but I was speaking with a manager of a local big box (privately owned) about introducing CrossFit and he was nervous because of the "firebreathers" seen in most videos. You did a fantastic job of showing the variety of people that "drink the kool aid". I believe you indirectly helped me....thank you!

Bill - I posted a comment under the running a crossfit, but I forgot to mention that I do not think the words need to be edited out. We speak the same way at our park wods and every affiliate I have ever been to speaks this...unless kids are with in ear shot. Just my $.02....great job!
