CrossFit founder and CEO Greg Glassman joined Justin on Episode 101 of CrossFit Radio, webcast live at 6 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2010.
1:32 Coach Glassman started off by talking about the CrossFit 101 seminars he conducted over the course of the last year. He mentioned several affiliates where he stopped and established relationships with CrossFitters, and he talked about how those interactions have influenced him to really focus on finding ways to help affiliate owners be more successful. Coach went on to comment on the unique relationship between the online or virtual CrossFit community and the real-world side of the business that’s characterized by seminars, the Games, friendships and trainer-client relationships.
Coach believes intellectual rigor and observable, measurable, repeatable results are necessary in any real fitness program, and he explained how CrossFit will soon be the only fitness program that enjoys worldwide accreditation. The gem of the conversation came when Coach detailed how excellence begets excellence and translates into success for an affiliate owner. Always humble, Coach ended the show by thanking the CrossFit community.
