Welcome to Part Two of our Three-Part Crucial Conversations Series. In this series, we gathered most of the coaching staff in addition to our members of color for one evening so they could share their experiences to help us all come to a mutual understanding of the racial issues affecting our country and more specifically, the CrossFit Community.

This episode is the beginning of answering the questions that the NFX Community anonymously asked about these racial issues including understanding the issues at a deeper level and how we can all come together as a community (including loving and respecting our police force too).

Once again, we ask that you listen to these episodes with an open mind and an open heart.

NFX Crucial Conversations (1 of 3)

Podcast cover
Read more

The news has been inundated with headlines focused on the racial climate of our country. And it specifically hit the CrossFit community with the tweets from Greg Glassman who is now the former owner and CEO of CrossFit. 

In moments like this, we can stay set in our ways, assume we know it all, and look the other way. Or we can dig deeper, have uncomfortable conversations, and realize that there are things to learn, and always room to be better.

We took a stand and decided these conversations can no longer happen behind closed doors. 

At NFX, although we value fitness, the most important thing is the family we create through the community, and part of being a family is having a deeper understanding of where we have come from, what we struggle with, and how we can help each other.

Over the next three weeks, you'll hear conversations of us trying to do exactly just that. For these episodes, we gathered most of the coaching staff in addition to our members of color for one evening so they could share their experiences to help us all come to a mutual understanding.

We hope you listen to these episodes with an open mind and an open heart.
