JASON KHALIPA’S RESPONSE TO RECENT EVENTS
“NCFIT has always been about love and acceptance. Our mission at NCFIT is to LIVE BETTER. And living better means nothing while standing by in the face of racism, injustice, and hate. This week, our team will be releasing our full efforts on how we plan to both immediately support the Black community and all people of color as well as take steps to evolve our company’s policies to ensure that our core values are never compromised.
In light of recent events and on-going concerns about the direction of CrossFit, NCFIT will no longer maintain our affiliation with the brand. We have been an affiliate for more than 10-years, but we can no longer continue along this path. We owe it to our team, members, and the greater community to stand for something better than what we are witnessing.
NCFIT is here to stay. We will continue to promote our core values while still delivering amazing workouts every single day. We will continue to explore new ways to improve the lives of our members and team members while taking action to ensure that we are always standing up for what we believe is right. We will continue to grow and foster an amazing community inclusive of people from all walks of life, and we will do so as NCFIT.”
“WE ARE NCFIT. AND WE ARE HERE TO LIVE BETTER.”
