Last Tuesday more than 40 CrossFit Staff were fired. This is close to 30 – 40% of the members of CrossFit’s Santa Cruz, CA office.
The vast majority of these individuals were from The CrossFit Games media team working in video, photography, graphic design and logistics for The CrossFit Games.
BIG CHANGES TO COME
Our sources tell us that this is part of a move by Greg Glassman away from concentrating so much on The CrossFit Games, to shift the Media focus towards ‘CrossFit Health’, and to pay more attention to health rather than competition. One source told us that Glassman is ‘anti-games’, seeing the spectacle to showcase the sport in a dangerous way.
Dave Castro is apparently in Shock about the news.
This means that there will be no more Road To The Games Documentaries, and there will be big changes to The Regionals Competitions. It is even rumoured that they may be replaced by a completely new format for 2019.
What do you think about the forthcoming changes? Is this a good or a bad move in your opinion? Let us know in the comments section below.
