Re: When was CF founded?

I know it doesn't truly answer your question, but there is a video about the history of the cert that has some more history of CrossFit. It is under the Exercises/Demos section on the main page and then under seminar highlights. here is the mov link: http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/C...xBirthCert.mov (wfs)

Hope this helps.

Re: When was CF founded?

If anyone can answer this I would greatly appreciate it also. I am writing a paper for my Pop Culture class on the Crossfit phenomenon and could use the info for the background piece.

Re: When was CF founded?

Go to the US Trademark search http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/gate.exe?...ate=5b1jnq.1.1 (wfs)

Type in CrossFit. Answer follows: http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/showfield...ate=5b1jnq.3.2 (wfs).

Notice it says first use, 19850101.

The trademark has been around for quite some time. That has absolutely nothing to do with the website being launched, and the bringing of CrossFit to the masses. I think its a bit beyond what you are trying to convey to put a date on the trademark.

Re: When was CF founded?

At our cert they told us (and Wikipedia confirms) that they went online in 2001. There were about a dozen affiliates at the time, and it boomed from there.
