Support your Trainer - A Note from our Founders
To our valued CG Community,
We know that this is a challenging and unprecedented time for all of us. Our Campers and Trainers have been on our minds and in our prayers constantly.
Our Campers and the community we have built together are what makes CG so different -- we wouldn't be where we are together without your support. What you may not know or realize is that we built CG from the ground up, in partnership with our Trainers. Our mission is to positively impact as many people as possible; we couldn’t do that without the partnership of our Trainers. At CG, we created a platform where Trainers can create their own business. For a majority of them, this is their full-time career. They come from all different backgrounds -- teachers, engineers, full-time moms, etc. -- and all decided to forgo their careers to help spread the mission of CG and impact lives. There is not a day that goes by that we are not forever grateful and in debt to our Trainers and the life-changing workouts and community that they build with each of you.
During this time, businesses across the world are scrambling to find ways to keep their doors open. As a company, we feel that same pressure, but it hits a little closer to home. It’s not just the CG brand that’s at stake -- it’s our Trainers’ businesses and lives as well.
As part of our CG community, we come to you and humbly ask that you continue to support your Trainer through this time. Here’s how:
- Keep your BOLD membership active -
We would be honored and privileged if you continued your BOLD membership. Our Trainers make 75% of the revenue from each BOLD membership. When you cancel, it financially impacts your Trainer in a very real way. Your Trainers are pivoting quickly to provide online workouts to get you moving, hold you accountable and ultimately keep you healthy! We do alternatively understand circumstances are changing and for some of you, that means financial hardship. We have a freeze option available to support those of you in need. We’ll get through this and be back outside together soon.
- Join our #HustleFromHome Series -
In some cities, you can still get to Camp (many Trainers are leading nine-person Camps), but across CG Nation we have spun up our #HustleFromHome Series where Trainers are leading virtual workouts. At HQ, we are also hosting Facebook Lives (Ally’s even laced up her tennis shoes at 8 months pregnant to lead workouts for you again!) and are committed to providing weekly CG printable workouts. Check out all of the #HustleFromHome options in our blog post here.
- Share some positivity on social media -
At CG, we want to be a community of positivity. That’s why we deliver 60 Minutes of Amazing to our Campers every day. During this time, join us in showing some love online. Use the hashtag #CGDailyDoseofHappy when you share a sweaty selfie or see something positive you want to share with your CG Community. We are loving seeing all of your kids, dogs and cats work out with you! And the world can use a little CG positivity right now.
- Show your Trainer some CG Luv -
Send your Trainers a much-needed virtual high five! It’s hard for them, too, when they aren’t seeing as many of you in-person. If they’re on your mind, give them a shout out and offer words of encouragement!
- Leave a positive review of Camp Gladiator -
There are so many places you can leave a positive review. Check out Google Reviews, and other review sites, to leave local reviews. These directly reflect and show support of everything your Trainer is doing to keep making Camp amazing and our community intact.
While COVID-19 certainly breeds uncertainty, we have never been more proud of how our Trainers and headquarters have rallied together. We are working around the clock to find new ways to support you. And more important to us right now, is that we are choosing to embrace this time with joy and with confidence. We continue to be committed to serving you and providing a kick-butt workout, even if it looks a little different these days!
We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the outpouring support that we have received. And we want to ask for your continued patience with us as we navigate this virtual world. We believe wholeheartedly that (whether temporarily inside or outside), CG is the best workout available. Thank you for being a part of our community. We are honored to serve you!
