Kevin Bacon and the Future of PXT : 120314

From Wikipedia:

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon is a trivia game based on the concept of the small world phenomenon and rests on the assumption that any individual involved in the Hollywood, California film industry can be linked through his or her film roles to actor Kevin Bacon within six steps. The name of the game is a play on the “six degrees of separation” concept. The game requires a group of players to try to connect any individual to Kevin Bacon as quickly as possible and in as few links as possible…”

The game is a funny play on the concept that everyone knows someone who knows someone, and places Kevin Bacon at the center of the universe. The truth is, many of us are not separated by many degrees. We all know people who know people, who know people and it doesn’t take long to reach a huge population when word catches fire. It’s how videos go “viral”, it’s how blockbusters are driven to the top, and now, it’s a way to help us get to the next level here at PXT!

We will be starting up workouts in West Linn no later than Summer 2012! We have big plans to add new programs and services to both locations (Lake Oswego and West Linn). And we are excited to branch out in our upcoming PXT Adventure Series! To get us to the next level, we need more friends to share in the journey! This is where you and Kevin Bacon come in…

Today we are being featured on the Living Social channel of the Amazon Local Deal. It is an opportunity for people to learn CrossFit in a safe and motivating environment- and best of all – an opportunity to meet all of you! But we need your help to get the word out. Even if you think you’ve already told everyone about us, consider this…

A few years ago I met a guy from Montana, who has a brother in Lake Oswego! Did you know I once met a college student on a CrossFit Online Message Board, she was from California and she had a childhood friend who lives across the street from PXT, Dana joined a month later! My point is this: you might have a friend that doesn’t live anywhere close enough to ever join our community here, but your friend might have a cousin, who knows an uncle, who has a friend across the street! So please help us out and create some buzz!

This deal will only be offered for THREE DAYS! Go to the Amazon Local Deal now and share it on Facebook! Post it onto your friends’ “wall” and ask them to re-share! Email it – Tweet, Pintrest, Youtube and Linkedin! It’s a local deal, but we are only 6 degrees away from Kevin Bacon anyway! So go share it!

Thanks!!!
