Executive Program Graduate: John Stanley

John Stanley came to Vancouver for the in-house executive business mentorship diploma program in April 2011. Here’s his story: When I first heard about CrossFit, I was skeptical. Every program claims to be number one, and most don’t come close to meeting that mark. So I started researching and found that there was a lot of science behind the program. It just made sense to me. I wanted to learn more, so I talked with Patty and we discussed a level one cert, and then he suggested his business mentorship program. I thought, ‘Well if I’m going to open a new business, who better to learn from than the guys that brought the product into the country?’ Simply put, the program gave me all of the ins and outs of the business. These guys had already made all of the mistakes and found the best ways around them. I took in everything they said, and completely bought into their system. CrossFit Vancouver showed me the perfect way to expose a new client to CrossFit. I live in a city of only twenty thousand, in one of the coldest parts of the country, a place where people want to be outside in the summer. Despite this, I still signed sixty very happy clients in the last two summer months. They are going strong, getting great results, and I believe they are all going to become long-term CrossFitters. Thank you Patty, and, of course, the entire CrossFit Vancouver crew! -John Stanley
