When we opened our gym we needed some showers installed. I’m decent at small tasks and thought I would save a few bucks and do it myself.
I spent hours watching videos on how to run plumbing, tie in drains, which shower was better for our space. We were also removing one of the toilets and using that drain for our showers so it required some extra work. I felt overwhelmed with the amount of work that needed to go into a simple shower.
So I talked to my old coworker Steve who was also a licensed contractor. He had the showers installed in a few hours.
That time I spent trying to do it myself was wasted and I should’ve talked to Steve first.
That was the day I learned the difference between DIY vs DFY.
DIY = Do It Yourself. It’s great if you know what you’re doing. But if we don’t know where to start we soon get overwhelmed and often give up. Or worse, we do the job and it’s not right
Then there’s the DFY option. Done For You.
We hire an expert to do the job. Oftentimes much better than we could.
That’s what we do at CrossFit CTRL! We take all the guesswork out of it. You just have to show up!
If you’re ready to take the DFY approach you can come in and talk to one of our coaches by clicking here.
