More and more people are finding fulfillment with a career in CrossFit. Dr. Allison Belger talks to several affiliate owners who successfully made the jump and put their skills to use in the CrossFit box.
In today’s economy, plenty of people are working multiple jobs in order to make ends meet. It’s not uncommon for people to make use of different talents, different experience and different personality strengths when working jobs that sometimes have nothing to do with each other. At a certain point, though, many working people would probably be happiest if one career could provide enough financial stability, psychological satisfaction and flexibility for life’s interests.
With the increase in popularity of CrossFit and the growing number of affiliates, many people are becoming part-time affiliate owners, and countless others have completely devoted themselves to the business of CrossFit, leaving behind other careers for good. Members of the CrossFit community know all about the program’s incredible fitness benefits, and a growing number of people are also experiencing the rewards of a career in CrossFit.
All kinds of skill sets can apply when CrossFitting as a career. The business side, management demands, athletic forums, community-outreach possibilities, interactions with clients and many other domains combine to make owning an affiliate a multifaceted, challenging and exciting prospect—maybe exciting enough to warrant quitting that day job!
