I want to add some names of the world class athletes who are CrossFit-ers to my marketing tools. I've met Eva and I know there were others in Denver but my memory fails. And I'm too lazy to dig thru the posts.

Full names, sports and specific acomplishments are a great help.

Don't be shy. If this list includes you, sing out. If you'd rather send privately, please do.

Be very careful about putting athletes names in print or in your advertising at all. I am certain coach has the individual permission of all the athletes on the site. Your best bet is something like "The program of choice of many world class athletes". You can always refer people to the main CrossFit site for specifics.

Remember, for the pro athlete, their name is their currency.

Point well taken.

I won't use any names or references without consent of the individual.

Anything else I need to consider, please let me know.

Tony -

Get consent in writing. I have had a few people sign a "Model Consent" form that allows me to use pics or quotes in my marketing.
