#2- CrossFit Owners pay more for space per member and more for training and other maintenance costs. Since we are not franchisees, CrossFit owners take on the cost of doing business for themselves and therefore have to pay for marketing, equipment replacement and other ongoing maintenance costs.
Is CrossFit worth the cost?
To me, Crossfit is absolutely worth the money. I had a cheaper ($25/mo) gym membership for nearly two years that I used maybe once a month. Now, I pay $150/mo and go to Crossfit 4-5x/week. For me, the value is that I actually go and get a really good workout.
