Free advice for any affiliate!

Don't do this $hit!

Franchise or not, come on HQ. Affiliations were taken away from others for much less. You post great info about spreading fitness in other countries, how about a short trip to CF Mean Streets to teach them respect?

Wow - very sad that an affiliate would engage in this type of behavior.

Even worse then HQ not doing anything about the affiliate's license and trainer's certification is that HQ has not made any type of public statement condemning what happened. HQ's attitude is that the whole thing was ginned up by a reporter with an "agenda", so there is no problem.

Let's not forget that HQ came up with the original CrossFit for Hope poster that had emancipated children in a wheelbarrow. No apology or explanation given.

And it was HQ and Reebok that came up with the "Cheat on your girlfriend, not your workout" poster. First they denied it was a real poster, said the picture was a fake. Then said yes, it was real, but not authorized. Then changed their tune again and said, yea, we did it, so what?

HQ and Reebok are tone-deaf and constantly embarrassing themselves and putting everyone who does crossfit in a bad light.

Unsat. Should be interesting to see how this one unfolds.
