Dear Roots,

There are no words that can quite capture what we’ve been trying to articulate on paper for the better part of a day.

The recent actions of CrossFit’s CEO go against our values and our community at CrossFit Roots. They make us angry. And sad. And embarrassed. We do not condone or support his actions and we will not stand with him or his comments.

We are taking a deep breath. We’re going to coach some kick-ass classes tomorrow. We’re going to welcome everyone to the shop, as we always do, no matter their race, sex, gender, or religion. And we’re going to figure out our next steps that honor our values and our community.

With love,
Nicole and Eric
