Do they seriously consider themselves to be professionals? Seriously?
records videos of himself while incredibly inebriated. Most his public lectures are given in some type of 5-clock shadow, wrinkled t-shirt, sandles, and wrinkled cargo pants type of getup. He personally attacks anyone who he dislikes, but refuses to take any personal criticisms himself. Most likely plagiarized most of articles he penned. Refuses to recant statements that are obviously wrong.
The Director of Programming
is a failed Edward Bernays, called upon to translate the drunken ramblings of aforementioned CEO and spin controversial issues in a way that don't "sanitize reality" for the masses.
The Director of Training
starts physical confrontations with coaches over disagreement on weightlifting technique, says that elite decathletes don't have the mental strength to do Crossfit, and has a 24-second deadlift.
The Message Board Administrators
ban people with no notification, redirect web traffic to S&M pornographic websites, ban the mention of rival coaches and gyms, hate gays, and criticize individual members for things such as being fat. (On a side note, I've sent several dozen emails and PMs asking about my membership, all of which have been ignored.)
The Director of Affiliates
writes some of the most melodramatic prose about exercising, and refuses to take down a picture that has prompted some to call Child Protective Services, citing some ridiculous principle about not publishing -- though all the negative comments on the photo were unpublished.
The Running and Endurance Certification Director
lies about his credentials, has not finished a race in years, criticizes the training of elite athletes (while offering inferior results), and plasters pictures of his tattoos wherever he can.
The General Counsel
, Crossfit's lead attorney, gets into petty arguments about Crossfit policy over regular people and trolls on Internet message boards.
Are you questioning the professionalism of the executive leadership of the multi-million dollar corporation Crossfit, Inc.?
