I’ve been super busy with freelance lately and haven’t had much chance to blog. I am happy to report that I just launched a website for my friend’s gym, CrossFit Iron Legion, the newest CrossFit facility in Ocala, Florida. Please stop by and let me know what you think. The logos and graphic work were done by a fellow Firebaser, Patrick Randle, and I think he did a fantastic job.
I was able to implement a low cost solution for gym owner Ted Dreaver. I installed WordPress on his Hostgator account and loaded the premium theme Reaction by Brandon Jones. I tweaked the CSS and loaded some custom graphics and Ted was rolling within two weeks. Ted was looking for a dark, “gritty” theme so Reaction with it’s dark version worked really well here.
What I really like about this solution is that the Reaction theme has a kickass admin dashboard, allowing users to change virtually any aspect of the site without having to touch code. It’s easy for me to go in there and make larger scale changes and Ted can easily switch out a background or color with a minimum of fuss.
