Just a face in the crowd??

By: Dave Leave a Comment

If you haven’t been stuck under a rock the past few months, you’ve probably noticed the amount of growth we’ve had as far as members, AND our physical space…

(if you don’t know what the hell I’m talking about, take a look at this vid HERE).

 

Want a little peek behind the CrossFit Lakás curtain?

A little insider info?

Something that will get you some knowledge of the future of CrossFit Lakás?

.

Well, we don’t have any plans on stopping our growth…

We DO have plans on accommodating our growth and we are staying ahead of it, believe it or not.

Guess what?

I had been planning on getting an additional space 4 or 5 months BEFORE we actually acquired it.

Just like I’ve been planning on FUTURE expansion of our training options, equipment, members, programs, etc…some of these plans have been cooking in my noggin ever since we were in the garage…

.

.

So why am I bringing this up?

Because I’ve heard of some conversations, through the grapevine…and not through the grapevine…that we are “growing too quickly”…and that “we aren’t giving people enough personal attention..”

Before I address those valid concerns, let me just show you guys something:

Cray cray, huh?

Before you freak out..that ISN’T the new schedule for CrossFit Lakás…

It’s the schedule for the largest CrossFit gym (as far as memberships) based out of a large metropolitan city.

To give you an idea of how large they are, they have:

2 locations

1400 members (yes…ONE THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED)

17 Full Time coaches

7 Part Time coaches

An Gym Operations Manager

A Social Media/Marketing Director

A Membership coordinator

and 6 Receptionists…yes..receptionists that help you get checked in to the appropriate class that you’ve signed up for…

….

Like I said, CRAZY huh??

So now, imagine if you were one of the 1,400 members of THAT gym…

Just imagine how much “personal attention” you’d get and how much those coaches would know about the athletes’ individual limitations.

As a gym owner, I can’t imagine the nightmare it would be for me to know about every.single.person who is a member of my gym if I owned the gym described above…

I (and the rest of my small, tight-knit staff) know intricate details about each one of you.  We know what you can and cannot do as far as abilities in the gym.

We know what you should be able to do, even when you doubt your OWN abilities.

We make it a point to ensure EVERY athlete gets the individual attention they need during classes as well as outside of classes.

IF…and this is a big IF…you think that you aren’t getting the amount of attention you deserve…all it takes is a simple e-mail or phone call..or just stop into the office…the door is always open…

unless it’s closed..because that’s usually because someone is changing clothes or having a private conversation that needs to be semi-private.

What I’d really hate to happen is for someone to think they are gliding under the radar and not being satisfied with their experience here.

If you feel like you’re falling into that category…then you NEED to address it with me.

I don’t spend all my free time here just coming up with workouts and great ideas…I want you to enjoy your time here and not feel like you’re just another face in the crowd…you’re part of the CrossFit Lakás FAMILY!
