The recent statements by CrossFit founder and current CEO Greg Glassman do not reflect how we feel as a business or as a person, or as a gym. We are echoing the numerous other gyms and athletes in our absolute condemnation of Greg Glassman’s comments. With that being said, we have made the decision to begin the process of not renewing our affiliation with CrossFit HQ. This is a big decision, but the right decision. As long as Glassman continues to be in charge and make these comments, we do not want our gym or our members affiliated with his comments.
As we begin the official de-affiliation with CrossFit, we ask that you bear with us in this unknown territory. We will need to rebrand and begin to purge the CrossFit name from our organization, while maintaining what brought us all together – a safe and healthy place to workout, make friends, and get stronger without fear of judgment. This may be a slow process, and we ask for your patience as we navigate it as a team.
We stand for inclusivity, a positive community and the omission of prejudice at CrossFit Rx. Our ideals and goals have always and will always be centered on the cornerstone that this is a safe, respectful place for all people no matter who you are and how you look.
We will keep you updated as we move through this process.
Michael and Ruben
