Affiliate Roundup, Part 1: “We Are the Product”

It takes more than a Level 1 Certificate to run a successful CrossFit affiliate. In this series, learn about the various ways thriving affiliate owners evolve when trying to keep up with the world of fitness.

In Part 1, CrossFit Inc.’s Tyson Oldroyd sits down with Pat Burke of MBS CrossFit, CrossFit Verve founders Matt and Cherie Chan, Nicole Christensen of CrossFit Roots, and David Tittle of CrossFit Low Oxygen, who share what they’ve learned about owning and running affiliates over the years.

“We’re the product,” says Cherie Chan, who opened CrossFit Verve in 2008. “You’ve got to put money and attention into your product, which is your trainers.”

Other topics up for discussion include the importance of continuing education and understanding the moral obligation that comes with handling people’s health and wellness.
