We all have them. The friends and family members who simply do not understand why we do the things we do. What are some of the things we do that no one seems to understand?
- Quitting our secure job to turn our passion into a small business
- Getting just one more dog (seriously, it’s the last one)
- Listening to Adele (ahem, Griff)
We do all these crazy things in our quest for happiness and fulfillment in life, and we often leave those closest to us baffled by our decisions.
This applies most especially to CrossFitters.
We volunteer to do the most grueling things to our bodies, anywhere from 3-7 days a week, an hour at a time.
Burpees? Love ’em.
Thrusters for time, a la Fran? Let’s beat our last time.
150 wall balls? Yaaaaas.
People look at us and our increasingly-defined bodies, and they feel a mixture of awe and repulsion. They think,
Why would anyone subject themselves to that? … I mean she is in the best shape she has ever been… her selfies have more friends in them than before… but… but… WHY?
What’s the Real Problem Here?
You want to share your experience of CrossFit with others, but you are also a reasonable person who has friends, and you want to keep it that way. We also understand inherently that with each day we choose to return to the self-imposed pain found in the depths of a WOD, it becomes that much more difficult for people to understand our choices and the growth we make every day. We get it.
We think, “Only if they tried it out, they would only understand.”
So you tell your friends, “Just try it out! They offer a free trial.”
Your friends look at you and go, “That’s one more trial than I’d like. I’m pretty sure after trying it once I’d never want to do it again! Better you than me.”
You sigh in defeat. How can I get my family and friends to try CrossFit?
We Have the Answer for You
Lucky for you, we are offering a one-time solution for all our members! Instead of offering our usual one free trial, we are offering a ONE WEEK FREE trial to friends and family members of all current Lobo members!
Why one week, you ask?
Remember when you were learning to ride a bike? You didn’t quite get it or enjoy it the first time. It took a few tries, having someone help you try to find your balance and see what all the fuss was about. But FINALLY, it clicked. And then you spent every. waking. minute. outside of school riding that bike with silver streamers on the handles.
We are extending this exact opportunity to you.* We would love for your friends and family to understand what it is about CrossFit that you love and why you keep coming back to Lobo…
… Day after day
… Canceling happy hours
… Leaving work early
Just to get your work out in.
*Silver streamers not included.
Here’s the Crazy Thing
You aren’t the only one who wants your friends and family members to see what the hype at Lobo is all about. Why we have consistent 5-star ratings on Facebook, Yelp, and Google. WE, the coaches and staff at Lobo, ALSO want your friends and family members to check us out! Believe it or not, we think you all are pretty darn cool. We wouldn’t keep you around if you weren’t. And it just makes sense to us that maybe your friends and family are just as cool as you are. So bring them!
We will be kicking off our free trial week with our classic Murph, at 10 am on Memorial Day, May 29, and the free trial week will end with the following Saturday WOD at 10 am on June 3.
If getting your friends and family to join you at Lobo isn’t enough to get you excited, we are also doing a raffle contest! For the number of people you plan to bring with you during that week, you will get that many raffle tickets in our raffle contest! Prizes include:
- One (1) free month of membership
- Two (2) 50% off memberships
- Three (3) free t-shirts.
Wait, I’m Confused…
Here’s how it will work. Let’s say you are bringing 5 friends and family members to try out Lobo classes during our free week trial. You will get 5 raffle tickets. You can choose to divide your tickets however you like in three raffles jars with their respective prizes (free month of membership, 50% off membership, and free t-shirt).
We will pick ONE winner from the 1st jar. One person will win a FREE MONTH of membership at Lobo!
- We will pick TWO winners from the 2nd jar. Two people will win 50% off their next month’s membership!
- Finally, we will pick THREE winners from the 3rd jar. That means 3 free t-shirts will be given out!
Again, you can decide how you want to divide your raffle tickets to increase your chances of winning something! Winners will be announced after the final Saturday WOD on June 3rd.
