Gym Owners Campaigning for New CrossFit Strength Training Members
Even though the number of new trainees is escalating to an all-time high, CrossFit Gym Owners are concerned about surviving in the current climate and coming up with innovative strength training routines and diet plans that will set them apart from the competition.
After all, some people have a different concept of being fit and view it as just another way of saying that they are not overweight.
They may have spotted a slim and trim celebrity or super athlete like Evan Pflock, who participated in various CrossFit sponsored sporting events in the past. (check out his stats) However, the lifestyle of some of these celebrities, Evan excluded, are not necessarily the healthiest around. On the other hand, do these folks have the faintest idea of the kind of strength required of them to train in a CrossFit facility?
Isn’t it time for CrossFit gym owners to learn how to turn things around, educate new trainees about all the ins and outs of strength building routines and show them what it truly means to go from fat to fit?
Obstacles Faced by CrossFit Gym Owners
Numerous gym owners with solid business plans, well qualified personal trainers and good clientele often encounter more problems than they’ve originally envisioned. They run short of funds, which leads to disappointment on the part of regular Joes and Janes who desire nothing more than to show up and engage in a lively training session.
Now, let’s digress a little bit and focus on the second part of our discussion – What does it mean to be fit in the real sense of the word? Remember, it’s not a case of “I’m not overweight, so I must be fit.”
What Does Total Fitness Involve?
Not being overweight and feeling good within yourself where you do not fall ill does not necessarily constitute a healthy body, though. How would you define total fitness?
Apparently, it is a state of sustained optimal well-being where you can exert yourself physically, mentally and spiritually without too much effort involved. Furthermore, it is not just the absence of a disease or an infirmity, but can be manifested by three essential characteristics, namely; health, resilience, and optimal performance under any circumstances.
Now that we have a better understanding of what complete fitness involves, let’s turn our attention back to the CrossFit Strength Training Campaign dilemma that our Gym Owners are struggling with currently.
One of these is the non-renewal of leases by the owner of the relevant facility where they’ve set up their crossfit site facility. The thing is that the landlord would rent out property for about a year, and when the time comes for the renter (Gym owner) to renew their lease, the landlord becomes uncooperative and may even demand an unreasonable rental for the next year, which makes it near impossible to the CrossFit Gym owner to continue their business.
Often, they are forced to move to another facility, which leads to massive disappointment to their loyal supporters who became accustomed to letting off steam at their local CrossFit gym. The new location may not be within reach, and can lead to a decline in the gym owner’s clientele.
Aside all of the issued faced by gym owners of local CrossFit facilities, the attendees are super impressed with the style of training they choose to practice at various strength building facilities.
Even the trainers are super excited at the prospect of flipping tires, climbing walls, dragging sleds, and using free weights to boost the training quality of their trainees. This kind of functional strength delivers outstanding results never seen before.
On the flip side, this type of training can produce some serious wear and tear to walls, floors, ceilings, and even parking lots. Many gym owners do not take this into consideration when they sign a lease with their property owner. Worse of all, they do not prepare the landlord for what might happen to their assets. The result is that when the property owner stages a surprise visit, they are appalled at the condition of their building and the surrounding area.
At the time, the landlord may not voice their displeasure, but when the time comes to renew the lease, they become hard headed and not willing to negotiate any rates for another year’s lease, regardless of how the offer is on the part of the gym owner.
It would have been better to be open and honest about what will happen during the year concerning the type of training involved and suggest a separate clause gets included to make provision for possible damages. This way everyone will be happy, including any new members who get used to regular training sessions.
