The Week Ahead 7/1-7/6/2019

- 9:30am class has been moved to 7:15am. We will be testing this for the summer and be making a long term decision on if it stays or goes by labor day.
- Friday 7pm is off the schedule for the summer. Please adjust your workout schedule appropriately.
- 4th and 5th of July schedule. These are tricky days as they potentially create a 4 day weekend for many people. We anticipate that the majority of our membership will be out of town for the weekend. With that, both the 4th and the 5th will be a “holiday schedule” holding hour long classes at 9 and 10am. They will both have larger caps to accommodate more participation. Enjoy! Saturday the 6th will be a standard Saturday.

- Got a friend that wants to get down with us and do some Crossfit? Bring them to our 10:30 class on Saturday. It’ll be fun, we promise.

THE WEEK AHEAD: 6/23-6/39/2019

Summer is here and we are making a few schedule changes. The following changes will be reflected on Mindbody as of Sunday the 23rd.

- 9:30am class has been moved to 7:15am. We will be testing this for the summer and be making a long term decision on if it stays or goes by labor day.
- Friday 7pm is off the schedule for the summer. Please adjust your workout schedule appropriately.
- 4th and 5th of July schedule. These are tricky days as they potentially create a 4 day weekend for many people. We anticipate that the majority of our membership will be out of town for the weekend. With that, both the 4th and the 5th will be a “holiday schedule” holding hour long classes at 9 and 10am. They will both have larger caps to accommodate more participation. Enjoy! Saturday the 6th will be a standard Saturday.

The big news: After a few week hiatus, Amanda is back with a brand new class starting this Saturday at 8am. She will be leading a mobility class that will be roughly 45 minutes to an hour long and focus on restorative practice of joints and soft tissue. These techniques will allow for people take what is useful to them and bring it into their own “pre game ritual” to optimize their class time. If you’re interested in learning more about the mobility classes, see us in the gym for more info!

The Week Ahead: 6/10-6/16/2019

- Impromptu Track day: For those interested I (Justin) will be going to the track to run some sprints and drills on Sunday at noon(barring any sort of inclement weather). If anyone has any interest you are welcome to come, out-sprint me, and then make fun of me for being slow. You will be doing my sprint workout for weightlifting and no i don’t know what that is because my coach didn’t send it yet but its usually not over 30 meters of sprints. Yes we can do other Sunday things and no it doesn’t always have to be sprinting but yes it has to be outside of the gym because Vitamin D and summer.

- 9:30am will be on summer break: Starting June 24th our 9:30 class will be moving down to 7:15am. It is currently a trial basis for the remainder of the summer and we will make a decision if it stays, returns to it’s original time, or a combination of the two. If you have any questions about the class, please let me know. Justin@crossfitbayonne.com

- If you enjoy your time at Crossfit Bayonne, I ask that you write 5 star review on whatever platform you’re most inclined to. If you would give anything less than a 5, I instead ask that you email me directly and tell me what’s on your mind. If it’s a feasible request, it will be done. justin@crossfitbayonne.com. Thank you to the folks who wrote reviews and sent emails but it would be nice if we got a fewwwww more. Just a few. Like 3. Maybe 5. Possibly 7.

The Week Ahead: 5/28-6/1/2019

- Class cancellation: We will be repairing the floor and front wall Tuesday morning. As a result 9:30am and 4:30pm classes will be cancelled on Tuesday.
-Side note:
there will be a good amount of wet concrete in the front of the gym. Please watch where you’re walking.

- 10:30am class on Saturday: Is for everyone!
This has been designated our “Free trial class” which is where folks can come in and try out the gym. That said, it is still a regular class for members to enjoy. We just might get a couple of new folks in the mix. If you see someone you don’t know, introduce yourself!

The Week Ahead: 5/20-5/26/2019

NEWS AHOY!!!
- Murph is this Saturday! We will be running our 3, 45 minutes classes that will serve as independent heats for Murph. You do not need to finish the workout in the 45 minutes allotted but we will send out the next crew at the beginning of each class time. There will be snacks and booze and we can all hang around and watch the parade afterwards.

- Signing up protocol: As some of you have noticed, there is occasionally a prompt to pay for a class as a drop in. This is caused by one of two things: Cancelling late for a class(within 30 minutes) or already being signed up for a class. This is to ensure that everyone gets a fair shot at signing up for the busier classes. If either of those things happened and you unable to sign up for another class, no one(not even myself) can enroll you. You may show up for class and if there is less than the cap of the class you can participate. Just a brief reminder that signing up and showing up for the class has no repercussion, it’s just an expectation of being a member here.

- Your trash will soon be trash: If you have any random clothing or personal stuff hanging around the gym, you have until the end of the week to take it home or it will be donated to the city dump.

- 10:30am class on Saturday: Is for everyone! This has been designated our “Free trial class” which is where folks can come in and try out the gym. That said, it is still a regular class for members to enjoy. We just might get a couple of new folks in the mix. If you see someone you don’t know, introduce yourself!

- Monday May 27th: We are CLOSED. Enjoy Memorial Day! Business as usual on May 28th.

- If you enjoy your time at Crossfit Bayonne, I ask that you write 5 star review on whatever platform you’re most inclined to. If you would give anything less than a 5, I instead ask that you email me directly and tell me what’s on your mind. If it’s a feasible request, it will be done. justin@crossfitbayonne.com

The Week Ahead 4/29/2019-5/4/2019

Housekeeping
- Please refrain from signing up for multiple classes throughout the day in order to “secure” a spot. Anyone found doing this will be removed from the roster in both classes.
- It’s sort of a short list this week, butttt…..

Starting this Saturday!
For the next month we are going to be test driving a new format for Saturday classes ONLY. We will be offering 3 classes: 9am,9:45am and 10:30am. These classes will be 45 minutes In length.

The Week Ahead: 4/15/2019-4/20/2019

I would just like to take a moment to thank everyone for signing up for classes this week. There are still a few that need to get the hang of (read: need to just fucking doing it) signing up BUT WE’RE GETTING CLOSE GANG.

Side note: The new format of Mindbody does not allow for clients to see how many people have signed up for class. While I have never spoken with anyone in Mindbody regarding this, I could only imagine they would have one of two responses:
”Why on earth would you need that?”
”Why would It even matter?”
I would then go into this long description about how clients like to see how many people(not who specifically, just how many) are signed up for a class to see if they’re going to go.
We would then get into a conversation about how it’s ridiculous to work out based on how many other people are going to the gym because ultimately it’s YOUR fitness that YOU have to manage and that other people working out with you is an added bonus. Then we would talk about how it’s almost like personal training and how awesome it would be to get essentially free personal training for an hour because it is typically very expensive. 45 minutes will have passed at that point and I will say goodbye, having learned nothing about Mindbody and not fixed any of the actual issues that I try and take care of on my weekly phone calls.

My point is, Don’t worry about who’s signing up for class. Because whatever coach is supposed to be there, will be. And so will you. That’s all that matters.

Additionally: Texting coaches on the side is great, but they are not your secretaries. They have lives and work and school and need to focus on those things when they’re not in the gym. Please do not text them about: signing up, who’s in a class, being late, or cancelling. That is why we have Mindbody. Whether you’re late or cancelling all together, the class goes on as scheduled. Please see last week’s sign up guidelines for a full tie-in.

Holy Thursday/Good Friday Schedule:
- Looks a hell of a lot like every other day. See you in the gym.



The Week Ahead: 4/8/2019-4/13/2019

- If you are reading this and you are still unable to sign up for class and your name is NOT Naveen, you have yet to successfully give me your debit/credit card in the gym. If you’re not able to get it for me by the end of the day, you will be able to purchase memberships through the Mindbody app at the current rate Tuesday.

- Going forward we will be adding enrollment policies in an effort to create clear expectations and fairness for everyone that attends the gym. While not every class is full, I would like to begin creating a habit of consistency in these practices so that when classes do become larger, there is a procedure that works in place. These are not if/then statements and there is no “penalty” for not following rules. It’s a request at the benefit of your coaches and fellow members so that we can appropriate gauge our class time and resources so that everyone has an enjoyable experience. It’s about creating a culture in the gym that is consistent and works for everyone. If you are an active member of this gym, even for a day, you follow these practices.

  • Every Class has a 15 person cap.

  • Signing up for class is mandatory.

  • You can only participate in the class that you’re enrolled in.

  • Signing up for multiple classes in

  • 5:15am class enrollment is cut off at 11pm and early cancellation is cut off at midnight.

  • All other classes are 1 hour cut off prior to start of class, 30 minute early cancellation prior to start.

  • Waitlisted clients are not enrolled in a class and will be notified by Mindbody in the event that they’re added to the roster. Otherwise, you will need to enroll an available class.

  • We encourage people to show up 5-10 minutes prior to class. If you’ve missed the start of the warm up, it is your responsibility to effectively warm yourself up via.

  • Lateness beyond 5 minutes will result in being asked to not participate in the class.

The Week Ahead 4/1/2019-4/6/2019

Here’s a couple of things that are coming up this week.
- SUMMER SCHEDULE FLIPPITY FLOP.
Friday afternoon classes are getting bumped to 5,6 and 7pm. Enjoy!

- Can’t find the workouts? We have moved all of our workout posts to Beyondthewhiteboard.com. You may go there, register an account(it’s totally free) and then put Crossfit Bayonne as your gym. The code to get in is CFB123. Then you get all the access to checking the workouts AND you can log your scores and keep track of your data which will help you go farther in your fitness! EZPZ. There is also an app on the App Store! its super useful so download that right now. You still have to make an account on the computer so…do that here.
No, you can’t sign up for class on BTWB. You never could. That has literally never been what it’s for.

- April 1st Mindbody scheduling and billing Launch.
Tomorrow is the first day we are working with Mindbody officially as our scheduling and billing app. If you haven’t created an account in the gym and transferred your billing info over to me(in person) I just want you to know that you’re a huge PITA. Nevertheless, you need to get that in ASAP. You won’t be able to sign up for class so don’t. I will assume there’s a tremendous number of people who don’t have the ability to do so yet so just come in, card in hand and maybe gently whisper “I’m sorry” in my ear for doing this 3 weeks after I politely requested you all to do it in advance to make both of our lives less complicated. I digress…Here' are some definite things that people are going to say in the next 72 hours.

- XYZ doesn’t work. Why can’t I do this/that/the other thang.
This is our first week using the system and there are bound to be a few bugs. Let me know if you’re having an issue with something and ill write it down for my next meeting with the MB help desk to get it cleared up. It may take a week or two to get this up and running perfectly but guess what… FITNESS IS STILL HAPPENING IN THE GYM.

- “But Justin! I can’t sign up for class!”
Please check the date located in your computer calendar or by clicking the time on your menu bar. If it’s before April 1st you won’t have the ability to sign up for class on Mindbody (we talked about this). That means, when you wake up, you SHOULD have access to the schedule IF you gave me your billing stuff. If you didn’t, read above, and now slowly come to the realization that you’re locked out of the schedule until you come to me and give me your billing info for Mindbody. Terrific. Welcome back.

- Did you download the app?
Why are you not doing these things? PLEASE download it. You will need to create a separate login on that app and it will recognize that you have a membership in a gym(our gym, starting April 1st) and will appropriately link it to you. It’s nice like that.

But then how do I check the workouts on Mindbody.
- You don’t. That’s beyondthewhiteboard. See above for instructions on how to get in there.

But…how do I sign up for class on Beyondthewhiteboard.
- Is everything ok?

Mindbody: Final Notice

The last day to switch over from Pike13 to Mindbody will be this Saturday, March 30th. If you are not in time to switch your card and information over, your membership will be terminated and your grandfathered dues will no longer be honored. All switching must happen in person so that I can keep track of who is left.

See you in the gym.
Justin

Mindbody Reminder

News:
Just a friendly reminder to everyone that hasn’t done it. If you haven’t brought me your billing info (whatever CC you use on file or would like to use) then I would really appreciate that getting done ASAP. Our last FNL is a perfect opportunity as basically everyone will be in house for 19.5. You will not be able to do this stuff online so you have to give it to me when you see me.

Welcome, everyone: To Mindbody.

As earlier hinted at in previous posts, we are going through some back end changes to make the overall member experience better. Starting April 1st, we will be transitioning over to MindBody for our scheduling and billing software. This change will be BASICALLY seamless for everyone but in order for things to go as smoothly as possible, everyone with an existing recurring membership (anything that bills monthly) will need to do the following.

- See me, Justin, in the gym.
- Fill out a profile on Mindbody with the gym app. If you’ve already done it, fantastic.
- Once that’s taken care of, we can transition all of your account information from Pike13 to Mindbody. You will need whatever credit card you wish to use on hand. We also can do ACH if you want it taken directly out of your debit account.
- Once transferred we will set a date to cancel your membership on pike 13(march 31st) and set up your bill(April 1st).
- Download the mind body app, find Crossfit Bayonne, and wait patiently for the 1st of April.
- After March 31st, you will no longer be able to sign up for classes through pike 13.

Thats it! In addition, our membership policy will be changing from here on out. Our only policy is that we require WRITTEN 30 days notice in advance of any cancellations. Otherwise, all contracts are officially null and void and everyone retains their existing membership dues.

It’s a lot of information but with any luck everything will go totally smoothly. We NEED 100% participation in order for this to work so please don’t drag your feet on getting your account info over to mind body. Zero charges will go through until the 1st of April. See you all in the gmy.

Here's an old 16.2 strategy video that would be useful to review before taking a swing at tomorrow. The workout has changed slightly but the strategy still holds pretty true.
