Reaction: “Grandfathering Rates “Detrimental,” Say Business Mentors, Gym Owners”

The spirit of grandfathering was introduced to CrossFit by its founder, Greg Glassman. He wanted gym owners to know that their rate would never go up in exchange for being a part of this new movement which he hoped would take over America’s fitness habits.

This is my reaction to The Morning Chalkup’s article published March 14, 2022, by Emily Beers titled “Grandfathering Rates “Detrimental,” Say Business Mentors, Gym Owners”.

Grandfathering rates refers to the practice of keeping rates the same for loyal customers or members. This can be seen as beneficial to those who are already paying a lower rate, but it can also be detrimental to businesses that are trying to grow and scale.

While grandfathering rates may seem like a good idea in the short term, it can do more harm than good in the long run.

What do you think? Is grandfathering rates fair or unfair? Should CrossFit gyms continue to grandfather rates to members despite rents increasing, costs of doing business rising, equipment costs rising, and business services costs rising?

Or should they raise rates for all members in order to make a profit and keep the business in a strong position? Let us know your thoughts.
