The New CFSBK
We’ve been hard at work cleaning out the gym, painting, moving equipment around, and planning for our eventual reopening. The city has gyms in Phase 4 for reopening, which puts us at roughly 5-6 weeks away from opening our doors, assuming Covid cases don’t spike.
On top of all the stress and details related to reopening, as you all know, we’ve been dealing with the self-inflicted damage related to (now former) CrossFit CEO and founder Greg Glassman’s comments regarding George Floyd and Covid-19. The history of problematic leadership at CrossFit HQ is a long and complicated one, and as a result of this, we’ve decided to step away from the company, rebranding ourselves as Community Fitness South Brooklyn. This was not an easy decision given all we owe to the methodology and community at large that has given us so much; however, values and actions are more important than 8 letters associated with our name, and now more than ever it’s important to be on the right side of history.
We unequivocally believe that black lives matter and changing our name is only one step in the direction of making our gym even more equitable and accessible for more people. Creating sustaining and benefactor rates, partnering with local organizations, changing elements of how we program and the kinds of events we run in the future will further demonstrate our commitment to more equitable access to our program and highlight our values of inclusivity and our commitment to progressive politics.
We’re hard at work putting all the details together and are excited to be rolling out some of our plans in the coming days and weeks. We appreciate everyone’s support, understanding and patience as continue to operate primarily online and know that we want nothing more than to safely open our gym for our community.
