Do I need a gym to get started?
No. A park or any other location is perfectly ok. Be sure to check with local government to have a clear understand of use for public spaces prior to any advertising or set up of the BeachFit Moms program. Depending on where you are located, the weather might not always be beneficial for your outdoor class. There are plenty of options in a town or city such as community centers.

No. Most of our workouts don’t require any equipment. But we recommend adding on equipment since it adds value. In the Anchor Portal you will find a suggested equipment list, but none of it is mandatory to run the BeachFit Moms Program.

Our fundamental class is COMPLETE and is the core class of the program. Any classes besides Complete, can be added as needed and per participants request.
Can I do CrossFit?
Only if you are a CrossFit Affiliate, go to www.crossfit.com, can you say that you offer CrossFit. If you’re not a CrossFit affiliate, you can NOT say you are part of CrossFit. You can do CrossFit style workouts, but you are not offering CrossFit. Using the name CrossFit in any sort of advertising without being a CrossFit affiliate can lead to legal actions. If you have questions regarding this, contact email@example.com
The Seal Beach location, HQ, is a CrossFit Affiliate – CrossFit Seal Beach – and we have legal rights to use CrossFit in our advertising. There is also a specialized youth program in Crossfit, which is a separate certification, CrossFit Kids. This is also a program we have at HQ, but that does not entitle you the affiliate to use CrossFit Kids either.
BeachFit Kids is a trademarked name and can under no circumstances be used as a name for the children at your BeachFit Moms program.
How do I set pricing for my BeachFit Moms location?
You set the pricing you deserve! We can recommend pricing but the more value you bring to the program the more you can charge. Go to Location and click on each affiliate to find out how they are charging. The standard is to offer two packages; Unlimited per month and a 10 session package. These two packages have been successful and they give the moms a choice. We recommend a minimum price point of $85/month for an unlimited package and $125 for a 10 pack of sessions.
Do you offer a nutritional program for BeachFit Moms?
Yes. NOURISH™ is our nutritional program. To become a Nourish coach, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. You must be approved by BeachFit Moms HQ to call yourself a NOURISH coach. The Nourish program is an add-on to the basic program and should be an additional charge for moms. That is up to the discretion of the affiliate.

The affiliate is responsible for using a professional payment service to all clients. There are plenty of options today. If you have questions about this, contact us and we will help you out.
