Episode Info: We’re back with another episode of the Two Minute Drill! This time around, I’m answering questions about how to raise money for gym improvements from your current membership, training in a fasted state, & the discipline I most attribute to my own success.//Follow Us On Social: Ben || Patrick//Questions Answered:01:50 - How would you advise somebody who wants to take control of their diet better, but who has - in the past - struggled with an eating disorder of some kind?02:40 - We’ve run a CrossFit Gym for 3 years and have the possibility to get a bigger location 5 minutes from our current one. We were thinking of crowd funding as a means to business development and getting the new place ready (we need new bathrooms, front desk, new equipment etc). Would appreciate if you could talk about your opinion on crowd funding (from members?)05:45 - I’ve been considering trying IF but being a morning class guy, wondering if you’ve ever heard of anyone adjusting their fasting window so that they can eat a good meal after the morning workout.08:10 - I have a 7 year old daughter who was selected to play for an all boys, 9 year old travel soccer team ... she is one of the best in her rec league of 8 and under, but is struggling with the bigger, faster boys on the travel team.

Reduce the volume, push through, skip it entirely?13:10 - How much does the music in the box during the wod affect the atmosphere? Do you think the coaches should be picking the music or the members? Do you think it’s crucial for the affiliate owner to be paying for a streaming service like Apple Music or Spotify in order to not get commercials?15:15 - What is one discipline that you perform daily that you feel has contributed to your success?16:40 - I do CrossFit 5-6x/ week. Advice for getting my first strict HSPU? I have been chasing this thing for months!18:40 - How does an average CrossFitter become an elite CrossFitter?21: 10 - What do you think of coaches that volunteer (aka, don’t get paid)? Do you agree with it? What expectations should a gym owner have for coaches they don’t pay?23:30 - What keeps you motivated when things get difficult?//Subscribe on Apple PodcastsSubscribe on Google PodcastsSubscribe on SpotifyGrab the book on AmazonChasing Excellence is a show dedicated to dissecting what it means to live a life of excellence, both inside the gym & out.
