From Avener, to all of you. A VERY IMPORTANT POST.
CFCC is about to get a whole lot more organized. We’re also about to ditch the Google Calendar.
Tomorrow, February 1st, we’re moving to MindBody.
MindBody is a type of software that allows us to schedule classes, sign people up for classes, and do recurring payments, all in one place. All of your payment info will automatically switch over on February 1st. The only difference that you should notice should be a change in the title of the transaction on your bank statement. It should still be the same amount, withdrawn on the same day. If anything different happens, EMAIL ME (AVENER) IMMEDIATELY AT CROSSFITCC and we will fix it post haste. We’re hoping the transition is flawless, but since I had to enter everything manually it’s quite likely that I made a few mistakes. As the Department of Homeland Security says, if you see something, say something.
And now, for class sign-ups. First of all, no more self-deleting Google Calendar. Hooray!
1. Go here.
2. Bookmark it. You’ll need it often.
3. You will see the class schedule. Click on the first class that you would like to attend.
4. A box will pop up. Enter your name under ‘New to Our Site.’
5. This will take you to a screen where it shows you names that look like yours. Click on your name.
6. Create a login for yourself so you don’t have to do this every single time.
7. It’s important that you click on your name and find yourself – this ensures that you are linked to your payment information, rather than starting a new account and, subsequently, a new payment plan.
Now, more than ever, you will need to sign in for each individual class. Most of you are good little elves and sign in on the Google Calendar every day. We appreciate you in a serious way. From now on, everyone must sign up for a class at least 15 minutes in advance on MindBody. If you know you want to come but don’t have internet access, call us. We’ll add you in. But don’t show up if you haven’t signed up or gotten in touch with us about your inability to sign up. You will also notice on that site that all classes are now capped at 20 people. We rarely reach that many in one class, so it shouldn’t be shutting any of you out. Some of you evening CFCC-ers may have noticed Tim assistant coaching from time to time. We are now providing a second coach for any classes over 10 people. The 20-person cap ensures that we never have more than ten people to one coach. The smaller caps on the specialty classes, like Oly, will also remain in effect. They have waitlist options as well.
Look around the site tonight if you have some free time – there are a ton of cool features. As always, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email.
If you are having any technical issues, you can also consult MindBody themselves here.
We’re confident that this is going to be a step in the right direction for a bigger and better CFCC. We’re also hoping that the transition will be smooth and flawless. However, we recognize that there might be some growing pains as we all learn to adjust to a new system. If this is the case, please bear with us. Also, keep in mind that we’re here for you – if you have suggestions for improvements, please don’t hesitate to send them our way so we can work on them!
