Tim Does It Different – PRsAllDay Podcast #37

13 Year Affiliate Owner Tim Dymmel of CrossFit Palo Alto talks about how HE runs a successful affiliate – and it’s a lot different than Diablo. But we share some important basics. 


Tim is a 12 year CrossFit Affiliate Owner. And he runs his Affiliate OG style: members join a class time – and stay with that class time. He programs for his affiliate, runs the on-ramp classes and new member free class. And when he’s not running his gym, he’s with his wife & 3 kids, training for the CrossFit Games, tearing it up on his mountain bike, or racing RC cars at night. He literally does it all. And, he’s got a cool Sprinter van too.
