Cutting Ties: Brands, Sponsors and Personalities Disassociate Themselves From CrossFit

Cutting Ties: Brands, Sponsors and Personalities Disassociate Themselves From CrossFit

The fallout from CrossFit founder and CEO Greg Glassman’s comments and actions continued with companies, brands, sponsors, and media personalities condemning, admonishing and cutting their ties to his company. As of Monday evening over 50 organizations and individuals announced through various social media channels their immediate disassociation with CrossFit.

One big thing: The actions by these companies and individuals will be a big hit in Glassman’s and CrossFit’s bank account as the company has seen it’s revenue stream from seminars strained from the COVID-19 pandemic and nearly 400 gyms have announced they are disaffiliating over the last 24 hours.

  • Reebok, a long-standing partner with CrossFit, announced that they would cancel their negotiations on extending their 10-year partnership.
  • WIT, the global online distributor of official CrossFit licensed products, announced they were immediately ceasing their association with CrossFit. This included removing the affiliate status of their London gym and removing all CrossFit associated products from their website.
  • Brands synonymous with CrossFit soon followed suit including FITAID, NOBULL, ROMWOD, Competition Corner, Zevia, Bear Komplex and Born Primitive to name a few. 
  • CrossFit training programs like MisFit Athletics and CompTrain also announced their separation from the CrossFit brand.
  • Media entities, coaches and personalities also announced their dissociation including Loud And Live Sports President Matt O’Keefe, Armen Hammer, Craig Ritchey, and Chris Hinshaw.
