Featured Box: Crossfit Grandview
In just a few years, CrossFit has changed drastically. Boxes have transformed from garages with homemade equipment to professional-grade facilities. Of course, the equipment isn’t the only thing that’s improved. So has the coaching. Many are paid a professional wage. Today’s top Boxes also employ personal trainers and nutritionists. No wonder CrossFit has earned quite a reputation for delivering results. And more athletes are drawn to the sport of fitness than ever before.

Inside the Box: CrossFit Grandview in Columbus, Ohio
Learn what our partner and Box owner, Brandon Couden, has to say about the Europa Sports/CrossFit connection. CrossFit Grandview was founded by Brandon Couden and 2010 CrossFit Games Champion Graham Holmberg.
Why did the CrossFit Grandview Box partner with Europa Sports?
Here at Europa Sports, we may never know all the reasons why Box owners first turn to us. But we know why they stay. We’re consistent. As a Box owner, the last thing you need is an unreliable business partner. When you’re running a business, you need it to run smoothly. Time is money. You need to surround yourself with individuals that are going to make you more successful. And that’s what we do for our Box owners. According to Couden, “I was having trouble with another distributer when I learned about Europa Sports. Now when I order product, it’s here within a day—every time. Europa is very fast and reliable. Europa gets things done.”
How can selling supplements contribute to the success of your Box?
Can’t decide if you should sell supplements at your Box? Well, keep in mind that you aren’t merely running a gym. You’re running a business. The more revenue streams you can create, the better off you will be. Increasing your number of memberships isn’t the only way to build your bottom line. Just ask Couden: “Selling supplements is an added benefit to our business. It’s convenient for our members. Of course, it also helps a lot with revenue. We did about $14,000 last month.”
What advice does Grandview have for other Box owners?
Couden has been working with Europa Sports for two years, and he has this to say about working with us, “Find products that your members want and use. Then keep these in stock. Europa makes it easy to restock and replenish. Take the leap. It’s worth it.”
What are the top products that Grandview carries for their members?
- Kill Cliff
- Fit Aid
- Protein Powders
- Protein Bars (Top-Seller: Quest Bars)
How does Grandview educate its members on sports nutrition?
“We have a nutrition coach in the gym. And she’s a personal trainer.” Couden said. “She works with clients one on one. She will suggest the products that individuals should be taking and work on nutritional plans.”
The world of CrossFit is growing rapidly. Is your business?
Box owners like Couden remember when the Games used to be held on a ranch in California. Now they’re broadcasted on ESPN. Here at Europa Sports, we can’t imagine what the future holds. All we know is that we’re proud to partner with the Grandview Box and share the ride.
