Just kidding.
Looks like you guys have a really good format.
Josh remember this is a seminar not an EVIL MONEY MAKING certification!

A Midwest seminar in KC (with Coach Rut) would be awesome.

How about a tour? Hitting cities and gyms along the east coast, maybe lifting in some meets, a real road show, barnstorming power tour. Pull into some parking lot, start busting out the snatches, wait for a crowd to form, then dash away as the rent-a-cops roll up... guerilla weightlifting.

Hell yeah for a cross-country tour. Just drive around in a van with a few barbells, some weights, and a plywood platform. Also, paint the van silver with 3 red stripes.

The thing that will raise a serious stink will be our Performance Menu Secret Handshake Certification.

John-
I like the PM on tour thing. Back in the day that was one of the plans for
Crossfit
. To have a moving van with gear and just fly in the trainers...not a bad idea.

I'd LOVE to get to
Australia
, Europe etc. If/when that happens it would be imperative that we get local coaches like Don networked with as many people as possible. That is how folks in more remote locations will get more community and coaching going on.

Of course, I am obviously biased...

Gosh, I really wish this was closer to me here in Southern California because I'd be there in a heartbeat.

Oh wait. . .

Gosh, I wish I wasn't busy with my kids and their incessant sporting activities (actually will be with daughter #2 at a basketball tournament, then soccer, then other kids and basketball, then soccer. . .it never ends).

Ron,

Just drop the kids off at Legoland on Saturday and the Wild Animal Park on Sunday. Problem solved. If you're lucky, the Padres will have another Floppy Hat give away for the kiddies that weekend.

Can i get a discount if i volunteer to load and unload everyone's plates?
