We’ve got Jake Rhodes from BearKompleX and Jason Yule from Boxstar Apparel and Harbor Park CrossFit on the podcast. I met both of these fellows when they exhibited at the inaugural South Loop Games in 2016. This episode isn’t just for CrossFit geeks, since we dig into the ways that Jake and Jason think about building a market for their businesses in a complicated and dynamic fitness landscape. The nuances of balancing promoting competitive CrossFit and whether that detracts from the mission of health and wellness is tricky to unpack, and Jason and Jake have some interesting perspectives from working with every day people in CrossFit affiliates as well as being involved with sponsoring high level athletes and the CrossFit Games themselves. Check out more from Jason, Boxstar and Harbor Park CrossFit here: Website: www.boxstarapparel.com | www.harborparkcrossfit.com Instagram: @jasonjyule | @boxstarapparel | @harborparkcrossfit Check out more from Jake & BearKompleX here: Instagram: @bearkomplex Website: www.bearkomplex.com If you're enjoying the show, the best way to support it is by sharing with your friends. If you don't have any friends, why not a leave a review? It makes a difference in terms of other people finding the show. You can also subscribe to receive my e-mail newsletter at www.toddnief.com. Most of my writing never makes it to the blog, so get on that list. Show Notes: [1:37] Jason’s feelings toward Wisconsin always being paired with some sort of nod to cheese – particularly within the CrossFit Games. [4:03] Marketing in the CrossFit world must find balance between the mission of improving health and wellness for those who feel intimidated by the sport, and the showcasing of ‘freaks’ doing muscle ups and handstand walking. By focusing on the elite athletes in the sport, folks who are curious to try CrossFit can be intimidated and put off from going to the gym. [11:10] CrossFit is its affiliates, not its one weekend each year where the best athletes perform. There’s a place for showcasing the sport’s best athletes, but stepping away from making those people the whole CrossFit image is important in recruitment of more ‘everyday’ people. [15:24] Businesses need to figure out how to retain customers – BearKompleX can’t only target those who are ripping their hands for the first time forever, and the focus begins to shift more toward high-level athletes as the business progresses. [17:53] People view elite athletes as role models – people who they strive to be like, whose gear choices influence their own gear choices, etc. It grants companies credibility to have the support of high-level athletes. Those who are newer to CrossFit had to see an ad in their box or a cool video (with a high-level athlete as the face of the brand) and want to improve their athletic ability through gear to buy product, though. As time goes on, Jason and Jake have moved their companies away from focusing on the over-saturated elite athlete field and instead toward focusing on the average athletes who are influencers within their specific CrossFit community. [29:00] The goal of being able to compete in the sport of CrossFit is more attainable now, whereas competing at Regionals was previously the goal of the most elite athletes. The changes to the Games structure have affected athletes immensely – they have to be able to handle unpredictability as a piece of the ultimate test, along with the fact that they could devote their lives to CrossFit just to fly across the world and run 400m. [37:45] Will someone like Brent Fikowski struggle to compete with the new structure of early cuts at the CrossFit Games? One bad workout can send athletes home early, and it makes it more challenging for outliers in body size to compete in the sport. And why is the stereotypical elite CrossFit athlete so different than the stereotypical elite athlete in other sports? [45:14] Jason and Jake’s companies have to establish strategic marketing plans. Placement at events is significant (years ago, they hustled for a main vendor spot at the South Loop Games), along with having the resources to now have representation at sanctionals worldwide. [53:44] The vendor floor is very saturated and companies struggle to break even with giving away free gear on top of paying a high price to have a spot at events. [57:47] Online traffic spikes for a few weeks after a company is present at an event, which could be due to spectators returning to their boxes and showing off their new gear. Giving out discounts doesn’t produce much increase in purchasing but the chance of having referrals in the future makes it worth it. [1:03.58] Priorities change as the Games structure changes – global expansion tactics, prize giveaways with partnerships, and continuing to find further affiliate retail space is essential. Successful worldwide representation is a struggle, but having affiliate owners get on board with carrying gear in their boxes is as well. [1:15.11] More on Jason and Jake: social media accounts, opinions on quality Wisconsin beer, and the story behind BearKompleX’s name.

On today's show, I am speaking to two guests, first of whom is Spoken-Word/rap artist, actor, entrepreneur and master of a million other things, Scroobius Pip. If you don't know Pip's work, I can't recommend it enough. It may seem a touch weird that I have him as a guest, but there's a reason: not only is Pip a Crossfitter, but the nature of his work is in the power of choosing the best words possible.   When we're controlling our self-talk, we're essentially choosing words and phrases which lead to a more positive emotion, change the story we tell ourselves and eventually change our actions. The other part of the reason he is on, is because he's a really cool person to meet and is fantastcially successful in multiple areas. Success leaves clues as Jim Rohn once said.   Alongside Pip, I'm speaking to the coach who does his programming, Sam Marshall. Sam is the owner of CrossFit Chester Le Street up in Newcastle. Any of you non-brits listening are in for an interesting game of translate that accent! He's a truly great coach whose care is obvious and whose passion is palpable. What's more, he has been through an interesting story which is sure to inspire a few of you guys to do amazing things.   Topics we cover are plentiful in this hour and 45 minute episode but we STILL didn't get around to al of my questions. Anyway, this was a really enjoyable show to record. If you like this longer form style of interview, let me know on the socials.     Before we get into the show itself though, a tiny bit of hosuekeeping.   First, my Mindset RX'd Seminar is still running throughout the UK with US and worldwide tour dates being added to the line up in the next month or so for 2018. You can head to mindsetrxd.squarespace.com/seminars to view all of the seminars lined up.     Secondly, I hope you all enjoyed a fantastic CrossFit Games. Personally, I thought it was the best one yet. I wrote an article which you will definitely want to check out if you're interested in the way Mindset Plays a role in functional fitness. I've extracted all the techniques and strategies Brent FIkowski used to overcome all the things which stand against him. Essentially, it's how to create the mindset Fikowski posseses. If you head to mindsetrxd.squarespace.com/blog/theprof or google the name of the article "How To Steal Brent Fikowski's Mindset" you will find it there.   Oh, and third, whilst you're on the website, be sure to click around and let me know if you enjoy my swanky new website with all kinds of goodies including the books I recommend most.   Now, I bring you, Scroobius Pip and Sam Marshall.
