Obviously I'm not HQ, but I think only "CrossFit" is a registered trademark.

Re: Use of "Forging Elite Fitness"

Also not HQ, but with the layout of your logo, people are going to assume "Forging Elite Fitness" is your business name. I love the graphic.

Re: Use of "Forging Elite Fitness"

I agree - looks like your biz name is "Forging Elite Fitness" - your biz name should be the biggest part - since that is who you are - what you do should be smaller and in my belief, below it.

Re: Use of "Forging Elite Fitness"

just my two cents: the logo is really strong and is more than capable of standing on its own.

Re: Use of "Forging Elite Fitness"

Nice sign. It looks really well balanced and so I think it works. You have a strong logo as Sam said and since it's all the same size, eyes will tend to read it left to right. I like it. Position and shape can be just important as size.

.........that's what she said.

I also agree that the logo will stand on it's own quite well if you choose to go that route.
