Have you ever thought owning a gym is hard?
If you haven’t you might be delusional, or you’ve just had a lot of luck along the way. Kenny Kane, the owner of CrossFit LA, grew up in the fitness industry, watching his parents make their living in health and wellness. So, he knew just how hard owning a fitness facility could be. In fact, it was one of the things that kept him from starting or buying a gym until Andy Petranek, the founder of CrossFit LA, decided to sell the Box.
Through a series of events – and because of a great relationship between Kane and Petranek – the ownership shifted. And recently, Kane has been rebranded to Oak Park: Home of CrossFit LA. However, the information he revealed back in 2017 when Kane appeared on the cover of the March/April issue is still relevant to today. Below is the initial interview between Editor Heater Hartmann and Kane. Hear their conversation about CrossFit LA, about the longevity of membership and the importance of mastery in training.
