Membership Price Changes

As the summer winds to a close, gasp, it happened so quick, students come back for school, and a New Year is just around the corner, we wanted to get a quick notice out before the year ends. Some of the below changes are already in affect for newer athletes at CVCF, but all will go into full effect for all existing and new athletes as of January 1st, 2018. We wanted to give an appropriate heads up for all that this affects.

1) As of this spring we raised the student rate to $125/month for unlimited classes. This is currently in affect and all students who are currently paying our older $100/month rate will be rolled into the $125/month come January 1st. When we raised our prices some 4 years ago, this was the only price point that was not addressed, however it has come time. So, all students currently at the $100 level, please be advised that your membership rate will raised to $125 come January 1st, 2018.

2) We have decided to remove all discounts for any type of employment. After talking with a number of other affiliate owners (many whom are military owned), having athletes try to finagle discounts over the years, and ultimately having a tough time of where to draw the line, we will be removing them permanently as have January 1st, 2018. We believe EVERYONE’s employment at CVCF is important, whether you’re a teacher, ski shop employee, federal employee, small business owner, etc. you are all just important as the next in terms of making our society and community function. Same as for the students, these changes will go into affect as of January 1st, 2018, so if you’re receiving some sort of discount because of employment your rate will change to the standard billing rate as of January 1st, 2018. We will continue to offered discounted rates for paying for 6 or 12 months in advance which any and everyone are applicable for.

3) Finally we are moving our “Senior Citizens” discount to 65. This has been at 60, which we all know isn’t really “Senior” in this day and age, and we are finding almost every one of the athletes in this age group are still fully employed and not retired (what the discount is ultimately intended for, those out of the work force). These changes will also go into affect as well on January 1st, 2018.

After reading through this you may be able to see a little where our direction with pricing has gone. And ultimately that is, if you’re in the work force, i.e not a full-time student and not retired, that you pay the full rate. If you’re fortunate enough to have been able to retire at 60 or earlier, we imagine the $15-$25 monthly price difference the above makes is something that isn’t an issue, especially given the importance a sound fitness and strength + conditioning program plays in your life as you age (they’re might not be anything more important aside from putting good food in your body). And we’ve found most members even at 65 aren’t retired but we will honor the discount regardless of employment status at that age.

We ultimately know that we can’t please everyone. Some may be upset over this, some may not care at all. We’ve had a number of clients actually tell us we should raise our rates across the board recently. We are actually priced towards the bottom of the affiliates in the area (you can pay as much as $50/month more at some of the other affiliates).While we absolutely hope we don’t lose any of you we understand that could be a possibility, and as we look to the future and where our business needs to go and develop, this is something we will have to risk at the moment in order to garner the facilities success down the road. In the end we have the largest, most experienced coaching staff in the area, the largest and the most equipped facility, and routinely funnel more money back into our facility to improve your experience than any other CrossFit Gym in the area.

If you have any specific questions please feel free to ask.

Kristi is Leaving

We are all super sad to see Kristi go. She is an OG! Starting in the park at Dorest Street, becoming one of our first paying members, and ultimately the enthusiastic, amazing coach have all loved for the last 6 years. She will be greatly missed and today will be her last day coaching. She’ll be around for a little while still so make sure you get a chance to say hi to her. Thanks so much for all of the amazing help and memories Kristi!

CVCF Friends,

Some of you may have heard that John and I are moving. The rumor is true and we will be relocating to New Hampshire in August. His job has changed and he needs to be closer to Manchester. We have been here in Vermont for the last 21 years, this will be a big change!! I’m looking forward to being closer to our sons but not looking forward to finding a new CrossFit gym to train at!!

I have been at CVCF since the beginning. Started out at Dorset Park in the summer of 2010 when Jade hadn’t even opened the doors of the original gym.  I was hooked from the first workout!! Yes, I drank the kool-aid!! Couldn’t get enough of it!! Fast forward 7 years and it’s hard to believe all that has happened in that time. I got my Level 1, started coaching and have been coaching ever since. One of my favorite things about coaching at CVCF is on-ramp! I absolutely love meeting everyone for their first few visits to the gym. Watching how everyone changes over that time is amazing. From coming in and being a little timid, to week 3 and being ready to tackle their first class!! I’m really going to miss it! 

From an athlete standpoint, there is no better gym to train at! I made it to regionals on a team with Ryan and got to do “Jackie” with him. By far, my favorite CrossFit moment…Ever.  Since then, I have qualified to compete at the games for 3 years. I will be wearing Champlain Valley CrossFit on my shirt for the last time. Bittersweet, for sure. I remember picking up my gear in 2014 and when I saw my name with Champlain Valley CrossFit on my shirt, I could barely hold it together. I could not have been prouder to wear that shirt and represent our gym. 

One of the best attributes CVCF has is the people in this community. Going through our day to day lives, it’s all about the connections we make with each other. I feel I have made some of the best friends, training partners, and fellow coaches one could only hope to have. CVCF is truly a remarkable place.

Thursday, July 6th will be my last coaching day at CVCF. I will be coaching at 5:45 and 7 am. Hope to see a few of you there!!

Train Smart, Work Hard, and most of all HAVE FUN!!!!

Kristi

CVCF Games Fundraiser

Once again we’ve had some of our amazing athletes qualify for the CrossFit Games this year. As we have done every year this is a fundraiser for the trip and expenses involved with competing at the CrossFit Games. This fundraiser is to help Kristi, Dani, and Jade cover the costs of the trip to Madison, Wisconsin.

As we have always done we don’t want to blatantly just ask for money as we understand this is something we are choosing to do, not something we have to do. With that said we will be making an effort to give back as much possible product as we can to give back to those that give to us.

For every $50 donated you will receive a raffle ticket. We will give away all the product on Saturday, July 23rd, the week before we leave for the CrossFit Games. Below is a list of what we will be giving away (this will continue to be updated as we receieve more prizes). Thank you all for your help and support.

We’re Getting Married

As many of you know, and well some of you don’t (some think we’re already married, others don’t even know we’re engaged), Dani and I are getting married this fall. With such a huge community at the gym we can’t individually invite each an everyone of you, the invitations alone would cost a small fortune. With that said, we would like to leave an open invitation to our wedding to any of our members. Some of you we’ve know for years, other just months, either way, if you’d like to come, we’d love to have you.

With that said, you should know it’ll be a TRIP. We are getting married in Sint Maarten/Saint-Martin in the Caribbean. The date is Friday, November 17th, 2017. So, if you think you’d like to make the trip and come enjoy our special day with us, please reach out to myself or Dani and we will get you all of the detailed information for the event.
