Education at the box is vital to the success of its members because it allows them to make informed decisions when it comes to their health and fitness routine. According to the Pew Research Center, 64% of adults obtain information from their Facebook account. This means that providing your members with information through a digital platform is a great way to educate them. The knowledge you share with members can lead to a positive impact and consequently making them more conscious about the health choices they make.

Needless to say, the fitness world is constantly evolving, thus maintaining box members up-to-date on the best and safest practices regarding CrossFit and nutrition is monumental. Education can prevent injuries, as well as, permanent set-backs and simultaneously promote a healthy stable environment for all athletes.

Having information available for members will provide your box and management team with the opportunity to be regarded as leaders and mentors. In addition, keeping members continuously engaged is crucial to the success of your box. Whether you are educating your members via a digital platform or if you choose another method, remember that either way it’s important to keep your athletes in the loop.
