Please read me or pass me along to someone that will.
Just like last year, this is the email address and phone number you will need to get a hold of me for your free coffee or free Intro Class: firstname.lastname@example.org and/or (206) 390-7779.
And this is the rest of what I have to say.
Last year I wrote to you about the #1 misconception about CrossFit. People saying something like, “I’m not in good enough shape to do CrossFit.” I went on to give my reply which you can read in it’s entirety here. This year, I would like to expand a bit on that to include the #2 reason I hear that people can’t do CrossFit.
“CrossFit is too expensive.”
Let me start by saying, I’m not rich. I mean, I don’t even have a medium amount of money. What I am going to do here is tell you two things. First, if you value a Vanilla Latte more than you value your health, wellness, vitality, strength, motivation, community, friends, etc… a gym membership may not be your thing. I love a yummy drink like everyone else, but I am also honest enough with myself to know that a $4.65 cup of steamed milk a sugar probably isn’t going to help me with my life goals and it sure isn’t going to help me get that pull-up I’ve always wanted.
The second thing I am going to tell you is that NO ONE has ever called, emailed, or walked into my gym, CrossFit Outcome, and been denied a membership because they didn’t have enough money. Not a kid, not a teen, not a parent or a grand parent. Not ever. I have and will continue to offer the ability for anyone to benefit from our community and type of fitness. All you need to do is ask.
So, if you are one of those people whose barrier has been money, send me an email and I guarantee you that if you want to be here, we will find a way to make that happen.
In our gym, we have members of all ages, weights, heights and ability levels. There are kids having fun in our summer camps and parents wanting to be able to keep up with them. We have members that come to our Bainbridge Island gym from as far as Bremerton, Kingston, Silverdale and Poulsbo EVERYDAY, because they love our Outcome community and have found the value in what we have to offer to their life.
CrossFit isn’t for everyone, but everyone can do CrossFit.
I could go on and on about my gym but I will end my message with this, it’s time. It’s time to do the thing you have put off for every reason you could come up with. It’s time to feel better. It’s time to look the way you want to look. It’s time to lose that 20 lbs. It’s time to finally train for that race. It’s time to make some new friends. It’s time to be a little uncomfortable so that you can reap the rewards and be proud you did it. It’s time to get your butt in here.
If you finish reading this message and your next action isn’t sending us a reply, you lost out. Our gym rocks. Our community rocks. Our workouts rock and we want you to rock out with us.
As I said last year and up above, I will buy you a cup of coffee or a tea and we can just talk. I am more than happy to sit down with you and discuss your history, your goals, your fears and your level of willingness to try out our gym. I don’t sell anything. I share my experience and my gym with whomever wants it because helping people like you achieve what they didn’t think or know was possible is the best thing I have ever done with my life.
My name is Sal DeRosalia. I am the owner and one of the trainers at CrossFit Outcome and either way, I can’t wait to meet you.
Thank you for your time and hope to hear from you soon.
