Because we're gonna talk about everything.
The first month of 2013 is officially in the books! As I mentioned on our blog at the beginning of the year, we've been working hard to make 2013 your best year yet. We planned the Development Series beginning with the Endurance DS on February 3rd. We have also scheduled a mid-morning class at 9:30am (with available child care) for our members that work later in the day or have children who need to be watched during their workout.
One of the things we discussed in the 4th quarter of 2012 was a simplification of our membership options. Our continuing mission remains clear and present: a commitment to small class sizes, world-class coaching, and open access to your coaches via phone/email seven days a week. However, we do understand that our membership options may have been too "all-inclusive" for those primarily looking for just the three components I mentioned above. So, effective February 1st, here are our new membership options:
3 Classes per week: $179/mo with a 12 month commitment or $199/mo with a 6 month commitment
Unlimited Classes: $219/mo with a 12 month commitment or $239/mo with a 6 month commitment
All memberships will still include a one-on-one nutrition meeting with one of your coaches, and Unlimited memberships will also include the Wreck Shop.
Furthermore, you'll be able to add on programs like the Wreck Shop - $25/mo (open gym access weekdays from 10:30am - Noon, 2:30 - 4:00pm, and Saturdays Noon - 2:00pm); the Power Platform (limited access to the blue weightlifting platform from 4:00-5:30pm, 5:30-7:00pm, or 7:00 - 8:30pm on weeknights), Child Care - $7 (if you're bring your child/children to the new 9:30am class), and CrossFit 818 Yoga - $20 per Session or $79 Five Pack (Sundays at 11:45am).
In the next couple weeks, keep your eyes on you inbox as we'll be emailing each of you details on how this compares to what you're currently paying. As existing members, you are welcome to renew your existing membership when it expires or move into one of the new price points. Of course, you're also welcome to sign up for one of the new programs!
The (Extended) Referral Challenge and Our New Group Intro Class
Our January Referral Challenge has been going really well, but now that we've implemented our new pricing, we wanted to give your friends and family another chance to consider joining our family. So we're gonna extend the Referral Challenge until February 15th!
To that end, we're pleased to announce our new Group Intro Class. The Group Intro Class will be run every 2 weeks starting Sunday February 10th from 1PM to 2:30PM. The Group Intro Class will be a great chance for anyone to learn more about CrossFit, our specific program, and even get a taste of the Baseline!
eliteEATS' "Dinner's On Us" Night
You may have seen those eliteEATS branded lunch boxes floating around the gym or you may have heard me talking to some members about how absolutely delicious the meals they provide are, but you're still wondering what it's all about. Well, on Wednesday February 13th, Stefan (owner of eliteEATS and friend of CF818) will be here during the evening providing free meals to our members after their workouts (I guess you could eat it before too, but why would you want to do that to yourself?!).
This way you can get a chance to chat with Stefan, learn more about how eliteEATS works and get a taste of greatness! He'll also be hosting a cooking class on March 17th, so keep your eyes out for more details on that later.
New Schedule Reminder
We're also adjusting our schedule a little too. You'll notice that we no longer have 8AM classes, but instead we have 9:30AM classes with childcare available! We also added WRECK Shops to the afternoons (between 2:30 and 4PM) if you want to come use the facilities during this time.
In case you're wondering, the Power Platform program is really just a reservation system for the blue weightlifting platform in the back of the room. Some of our members use this platform in order to work on their weightlifting during the evening classes and in order to keep this from getting out of hand, we've implemented the Power Platform program which allows you to reserve the platform with 2 other people for 90 minute sessions in order to get your work done without causing clutter or annoyances during the evening classes. If you have any questions on how to get in on the Power Platform, send me or Z an email and we can discuss it there. Thanks!
