The first ever CrossFit Affiliate Gathering took place on Feb 2-3, 2008 at the Sunset Station Hotel in Henderson, NV. Approximately 150 people attended.
This video is Coach Glassman’s brief introduction to the event and to Craig Patterson’s presentation (highlights of which will be published here soon). His main theme is that the love of training brings success to an affiliate, not any particular business model or even business savvy. So much so, he says, that you could swap the business models of the top five affiliates and they’d probably make identical money. It is the quality of training, the passion of the trainer, and the depth of community that drive our business.
