Key Recommendations
Who is CrossFit for?
Although geared to everyone, identify missing market, engage and entice for long term commitment
i.e. Youth Market
An organization offering similar product whose CTA overlaps more than 25% of the marketer's own trading radius
Usually 30 minute travelling time (Mullen, 2007)
Recognize abundance of competition in Vancouver
Create and capitalize unique selling point
CrossFit Kitsilano could strengthen USP
Ultimately increase brand equity around each specific box
Become known for being more than CrossFit
CrossFit West End - extended specialty programs
Reduce CTA overlap, decrease competition
Public Relations
Effects of affiliation
Perception of non-CrossFit users
Control for external environment
Academic support
Defense strategies for your box
Explanations to general public
community relations

Effective PR integrates community and media relations
Media = short term
Community = long term
Encourage individuality between boxes
Prevent backlash
"A bunch of rich white people paying $250/mo. to have an uncredentialed coach instruct them to have spasms with PVC pipe and seizures on pull-up bars until they vomit. They generally do this for a period of 10-30 minutes and call it a workout. Those who partake in these group activities also have the option to pay $1000 to attend a weekend course where they have an alcoholic instruct them how to better lift their PVC pipe. Some people who do these activities may also confuse being nauseous with being elite" - Urban Dictionary
(City of Vancouver, 2011)
Consistent organizational structure
Appropriate market segmentation
Create and capitalize unique selling point
Build community relations for brand equity
Academic credibility
