Continue Policy of Zero Tolerance for Sexual Discrimination at CrossFit

Target: Greg Glassman, CrossFit CEO

Goal: Continue zero-tolerance policy for sexual discrimination.

A CrossFit employee was recently let go by the company after he took to Twitter to publicize his view that celebrating LGBTQ+ pride is a “sin.” Russell Berger tweeted, “As someone who personally believes ‘pride’ is a sin, I’d like to personally encourage CrossFit Infiltrate for standing by their convictions and refusing to host an Indy Pride workout. The intolerance of the LGBTQ ideology toward any alternative views is mind-blowing.” CrossFit responded by putting Berger on administrative leave before ultimately firing him.

Greg Glassman, the CEO of CrossFit, said that Berger’s views were “sad” and went on to say that he is “crazy proud of the gay community in CrossFit.”All of this is playing out during June, which is Pride Month. Glassman’s speedy reaction to Berger’s tweet shows unwavering support for the LGBTQ+ community. Sign this petition to encourage Glassman to continue a zero-tolerance policy for sexual discrimination.


Dear Mr. Glassman,

The way in which CrossFit handled the discriminatory opinion of Russell Berger showed unequivocal support for the LGBTQ+ community and truly highlighted the accepting attitude of CrossFit. For all individuals to be treated equally regardless of their sexual preferences or orientation, we need allies like you and your brand to continue to stand up and face down discrimination.

Unfortunately, not all businesses with your standing have been so vocal against discrimination and hate. I urge you to continue your no-tolerance policy of sexual discrimination, as well as use your influence to encourage other business owners to becomes allies of the LGBTQ+ community.
