There’s a Schism Happening Inside CrossFit

When gymnasium owner Alyssa Royse reached out to the CrossFit leadership on June 3 to let them know she was unhappy by CrossFit leadership’s response to COVID and social unrest sparked by the killing of George Floyd, she hoped her concept would at the very least be been given respectfully.
