UK boxes

Hi i am in the process of opening up a box, will be getting affiliated in june.

Was just hoping to get some advice from uk box owners as alot of the info on running a facility is from the US. interested to know membership numbers, running costs, demographic. anything that will help really would be great.

thanks in advance, Lee

Re: UK boxes

Hi Lee

You might find you get a better response if you give details of WHERE you intend to open your affiliate....if I was an affiliate owner I'd be hesitant to share this kind of info with someone who was potentially going to be a direct competitor!

Thanks Matt, good point. It would be on the Wirral. Near Liverpool.

Afternoon Fella.
Have you looked at the affiliates through the mainsite? / There are a number of them also on Facebook.

Also give York Fitness in Daventry, Northamptonshire a shout.
http://www.yorkfitness.com/customer-...ontact-us.aspx (WFS)

A friend of mine runs the commercial manager there. He's helped set up a number of new sites recently.

Hi Lee, I'm just starting out with Crossfit, where on the Wirral are you thinking I'd be interested. Where do you train at the moment?
