A note from Hari:
For the past year, Allison has taken on the role of “Operations Manager,” which basically means, she has been responsible for everything. Allison stepped into this role because it needed to be filled and she wanted to do whatever it took to grow The Black Box. (Also because we lied to her about the amount of work, but we will never admit this publicly.) Allison’s true interest is in coaching, and she has asked us to allow her to get back to that.
And so, we’ve lied to someone else about a new job that we’ve created, “Membership Coordinator.” We managed to dupe Sara Carr into believing that she can accomplish all the following in just a few hours per week:
* Manage the Front Desk from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM.
* Answer all the emails and phone calls from people inquiring about this crazy CrossFit program they’ve heard about
* Implement a card-swipe program, so that everyone checks in before each class
* Handle all payment issues.
* Manage all the Beginners
* Manage all the Elements Enrollees.
* Make sure no one makes any noise
* Guarantee that we turn a profit
* Personally do the WOD’s for anyone who is too busy to show up.
Please join us in welcoming Sara and in assuring her that our expectations are completely reasonable.

Sara was part of our team out in Aromas (pictured below with kettlebell) and we’re even happier to have her as part of the team of CFNYC, the business. This woman is strong and smart. She’s also scheduled to do her Level 1 CF cert this fall, so consider yourself warned!
