3:51 Nicole Christensen is an affiliate owner, Seminar Staff member, competitor and trainer. She described the various programs at CrossFit Roots, why they’re necessary and how she accepts feedback from her members. Christensen shared the history of her affiliate and gave advice to people faced with a critical start-up decision: go big right away or plan to grow over time? Christensen also addressed private coaching and when it’s appropriate for her athletes. Every affiliate has members who view CrossFit as a sport and other members who view it as a great way to improve fitness, and Christensen explained how she supports both groups. After touching on nutrition for her members, Christensen closed by describing how they promote and encourage great CrossFit culture and community at CrossFit Roots.
