Speaking of Glassman, I haven't seen a pic of Couch in years. How's he looking these days?

He seems to be on some kind of age-accelerating regimen.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

CrossFit is the new contender for gayest sport on the planet
https://qz.com/1288331/crossfit-is-the- ... he-planet/
June 08, 2018
more than half of all CrossFitters have a household income exceeding $150,000, which allows droves of gay men to shell out hundreds of dollars a month for an Equinox membership. This, combined with its type-A siren call, a public image unafraid to tout sweaty masculine flesh, and, I would argue, its very bro-ness, and CrossFit’s gay appeal is easier to decipher.

“I have zero natural athletic ability, and felt left out of most sports growing up,” says Cobb. “I feel like with CrossFit I’ve finally come into my own athletically, after years of feeling too gay to play.”
...
Yet unlike other exercise trends, CrossFit exists as an entity unto itself. CrossFit is a lifestyle, a state of mind, and a reason for being. In an age of soul-sucking hookup apps and the waning popularity of gay bars, CrossFit provides a sense of community and kinship for gay men who feel deprived of it. Whether in small towns, big cities or traveling on the road, CrossFit is almost universally an LGBT “safe space.”

On the contrary, he's pretty damn spry for 60ish, and having a 9 month old baby.

A friend of mine opening a CF place embraced gays early, and as such, he had a large gay membership, who worked hard, partied hard, and paid their bills on time

Hard to believe that Couch found a way to top Lauren's pending nuptials to Joe Exotic's ex, but he did it.

I'm not on the Faical Books, so had to have the wife look up what the dust-up is. At a time like this, Glasshole is going to put THAT virtual foot in his mouth? If there's one thing in this universe that will lose business and get a company "cancelled", it's being seen as standing on the wrong side of the racism line.
Like Sam Harris said when he went hammer and tongs with Ezra Klein when Ezra accused Sam of being racist, you HAVE to defend yourself against those charges swiftly and firmly. Because if that racism punch lands, that can be a career killer. And Glassman has repeatedly stepped in it.

On a different note - is @Fit even still a thing? Haven't seen or heard much about it in a year or more.

Just came here to find this thread. Because of his tweets, Reebok and Rogue have just dropped CrossFit. And a load of major affiliates have dropped association too.

He finally truly fucked it.

ask me how I knew this would be fired up.

let me state that drywall, etc, were pale pathetic IGx wannabes who never had the balls to engage, and plagiarized the vast majority of their stuff from this thread, and were never contributors here, preferring to dabble where they could get more likes and thumbs up from social media fucktards.

Crossfit has always been the most inclusive of fitness regimens. Crossfit.com never tolerated racism, sexism, homophobia or transphobia, but please remember, it's an affiliate, not a franchise, and you got as much rope as you wanted to run with. If you could find a way, or make one, you could do it.

Re-reading Glassman's response is even more disappointing after finishing Alyssa's long letter.

It's not a lot to offer some measure of empathy. He went the TOTAL WAR route. I suspect Bikram levels of fallout will result.

Holy shit, I remembered my username and password for this forum.

It's fucking hilarious that the public finally realized how much of a complete psychopath Greg Glassman is. 15+ years of terrible behavior, and it only took one insensitive joke about a murdered black man for everyone to jump ship.

Into the millions, bare minimum. Maybe tens of millions.
I'm pretty sure @Fit was on the down slope anyway, but this will ensure a fast circling of the drain. NOBODY will want to be associated with anything even remotely construed as racist now.
