The 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games might be over, but the impact is lasting. While in Madison, Wisconsin, for the weekend, Editor Heather Hartmann dropped in at CrossFit Big Dane. The Box is about one mile from the Alliant Energy Center, and owner Barrett Danz has been in full-prep mode for the Games since the spring. Hartmann and Danz met early in the morning to chat over what it’s been like having the event in Madison and the lessons Danz has learned in the weeks leading up to it.
As a business owner, it is easy to get caught up in making sure your members are happy with the way you are running your business, but do you ever take the extra time to think about your employees? These are the people that are making sure everything gets done and your athletes are getting the most from their experience at your Box. Successful employee recognition programs could lead to higher productivity and profits for your business.
There are four reasons why Jake Crandall believes a gym should host competitions. “It’s a way to increase their presence, their local footprint, show off their Box and make a little bit of money,” he said. Plus, it’s a chance for your members to compete on their home turf. But as a newbie, competing can be scary. That is a driving force behind Crandall’s creation of Kill Cliff New WODs on the Block competition. Specifically a scaled competition, it looks to draw in those first-time competitors.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
