Talked with Reebok Thailand

Just a quick update for folks.

I had the GM of Reebok Thailand in this week, and he was great. He is heading to Reebok in Boston in a couple of weeks, and will talk with them about more ideas.

He TOTALLY gets CrossFit and was very knowledgeable. He's been to a CF gym in Florida during a meeting recently. Great person.

Basically we're going to start out with getting our instructors into Reebok gear, doing a CrossFit Chiang Mai/Reebok Thailand t-shirt, etc.

We also talked about a couple collaborations.

- When Reebok Thailand is doing a demo, exposition, etc. they fly in a couple of people from CrossFit Chiang Mai to demo CF style workouts.

- When we hold a contest/fundraiser, Reebok will kick in prizes.

The OTHER thing we're working on is going to be sweet. A multi-day workshop with the Thai Olympic gold medal winners in the women's weightlifting, along with their coach. Hosted at CF Chiang Mai, and sponsored by Reebok Thailand.

Yes, we will be advertising it in advance, and yes, it would be worth flying to Thailand to learn from an Olympic coach and a Olympic gold medalist in lifting.

We are, of course, doing to have some private coaching for our instructors...

I'm working on getting it sorted out online. I'll put a notice up at some point soon (I hope).

Glad you like the logo!!
