I just wanted to touch base with the community and give them an update from CrossFit Cape Fear as we are slated to host the Robb Wolf nutrition Certification in Fayetteville NC on December 5th.

As everyone knows, Robb will not be teaching the certs anymore and to the best of my knowledge, neither will any of his crew. To say that I am extremely disappointed is an understatement, but, my personal thoughts and beliefs aside, I am having to think about the 70-plus students slated to arrive and hear about nutrition. CrossFit has issued a statement to all participants that they can get a refund on this certification if they so desire.

We will host the cert on Dec 5th in light of all this that has happened. Why? Two reasons... First, we made a commitment to host it and secondly, there are numerous folks coming from out of state that will lose their travel costs if we cancel and that just isn't right.

So, if you are registered and wondering how all this is affecting the cert, we will be ready for you. At the moment, that's all I know. I've not heard of who will be leading it, OR what their education and experience is, but as soon as I know more, I'll post it.

All I can say is having met Robb at the 7th SFG cert a few years ago, his nutrition cert in Cherry Point, and personal conversations with him, whoever is presenting has got to be on their A-game. This is a pivotal moment for a lot of athletes and coaches.

Respectfully,

QUICK UPDATE

If any of you are still signed up and going, the nutrition seminar in Fayetteville NC will be presented by Dr Barry Sears.

Let the conspiracy theorists begin!

Probably not the best idea to fuel the fire...

Not trying to... just wanting folks up to date.

Best of luck, John. It's unfortunate that innocents get caught in the CrossFire(tm).
