Our Commitment to Getting Better

It has been one hell of a year. My toughest since first year engineering school at McGill University. It was hard, but like that first year in Montreal, I think I will look back at the past year with the same reverence for how much I learned. I want to thank all of my friends and family who supported me, my coaches and our little company through this past year. I especially want to thank you for the feedback you have given us at our client meetings. I know they are not all complete yet, but I have to tell you, the feed back has been awesome. Greg Glassman always taught me. "Your clients will tell you what you need to do to improve you business. He was never so right. I don't want to spoil all the "surprises" and tell all the thjngs we have learned until all the meeting are complete, but I have to leak some of the better ideas because they are just too good. Our business will forever be improved because of your honest caring feedback. Here is some of it: More coaches/apprentices in classes. Personal Best board/weekly PB on website. Study buddies to work together on weaknesses. Injury prevention education. More weekend/holiday classes. Harder warm ups. More stretching (a program for all classes). Old school leaderboard. Better organized and promoted Madlab There are many more..... We are not perfect, we know our training suffered at times over the past 8 months. We have listened. We will implement the changes. We are committed to having the best fitness school on the planet. Me, Tbear, Sheppy, Pup, Bull and Johnny are off to Bali Thursday night, we will be back on the 20th of December. It is a break that I believe is due. We are going to work on a very important document every day after our morning surf session. Crossfit Vancouver's Constitution We need to describe our shared dream and the original intent of this whole company. We need to define a code of conduct as well as a code of responsible communication (which will definitely include a policy of zero tolerance on hearsay, gossip and negativity). Our hedgehog concept and clear definable goals. Our futures look bright. For now, we are off to recharge the batteries and redefine who we are and what we expect from ourselves, our coaches and our students.
