Affiliates that play together Thrive Together
Yes, I know I haven't been posting my workouts, or anything for that matter. I will return to posting workouts soon. Today I have better things to talk about.
Dani and I will be affiliating with CrossFit soon. We have starting but there is still lots to do. More to follow on this.
Revisiting Peru, I spoke to Coach about affiliating and he gave me a boat load of advice. One of the pieces of advice I liked the most was the stories of affiliates that are literally 2 blocks from each other. CrossFit affiliates should not look at each other as competition but as partners. In addition we talked about professionalism and passion regarding a job. A true professional is always learning and trying to get better, that includes taking criticism and listening to clients. In addition, they have a passion for what they do and actually enjoy going into work everyday.
There are many other aspects that go into a good trainer but I think professionalism and passion are very key variables. Greg Glassman said, "Clients are not harvested like a fruit, they are made." I look forward to building great clientel and "playing" with the other affiliates.
