Disaffiliation from CrossFit
We will not side with silence nor ignorance.
In light of the latest comments by CrossFit HQ’s founder, Greg Glassman, we at R3VIVE Fitness have decided to terminate our affiliation with CrossFit. We are disgusted and appalled by his comments and the lack of action taken by CrossFit, as well as their distasteful, mixed messages on social media.
Since opening our doors last year, we’ve always stood tall on upholding our core values and the diversity of our community, members and staff. We, as a collective do not side with the eerily loud silence that CrossFit has shown over the movement of unity and protests for black lives, inequalities in our society, and the injustices recently exposed. We will take a stand with the following actions:
- We will be sending CrossFit HQ a letter to end our affiliation as quickly as possible. Moving forward, we will be known as R3VIVE Fitness, something we’ve considered for some time now.
- We will permanently remove CrossFit Dudley social media accounts in place of our R3VIVE Fitness accounts. Our private Facebook page will remain, but only as R3VIVE – Members.
- We will be announcing plans for raising funds to contribute towards the “Violence in Boston” organization. More information can be found here.
As for our members and future members, nothing will change. We will continue to operate business as usual, as we will continue to host classes during this reopening period in Massachusetts.
We thank you all for your continued support through these trying times and will continue to stand for what’s right!
