Channel 6 Tonight at 11pm

We're on the Channel 6 Action News(Philly). There should be an interview of myself and a few members along with some training footage. We'll see what happens.

Re: Channel 6 Tonight at 11pm

It's on their website, but the video won't play...

Edit-nevermind, it's working now. Kind of annoying that they spent so much time on the rhabdo stuff, but they did a pretty good job of explaining how unlikely it was. Congrats!!!!!

Re: Channel 6 Tonight at 11pm

Dude,
That reporter looked like she was going to go into the whole danger aspect as the main gist. But she did a nice job of bringing it around to showing the fun and group elements I think are so important.

Good pub guys. The snowball is getting bigger...

Here's the link to the story:

Great job Mike! I thought they overstated the dangers of rhabdo a little but always expected when the media does a story on CrossFit. Balanced story for the most part highlighting the group aspect and fun of it like Stephen Baker said.

Great for exposure and I'm sure you'll get a nice surge in business from it (as well as other local affiliates).

I saw it, I didn't think it was that great of coverage about what it is all really about. Media will always play on the dangers of things, they always do. Good exposure none the less.

I was a little bit surprised that they played up the rhabdo thing as much as they did. That was our 9am housewives class! Nobody pushing themselves into rhabdo!
