We Built This Box

The DC Government is moving to impose new licensing requirements on DC fitness trainers that will dictate what a workout should look like, and will make fitness more expensive and less accessible.

This arbitrary, under-baked legislation is a terrible solution in search of a made up problem, driven by self-interested organizations who want to shut CrossFit down and profit from new government licensing fees.

The DC government has declared war on our definition of fitness – and is threatening who we are.

We don’t take orders from our competitors. Our trainers don’t adhere to others’ mediocre standards. And none of us should have to pay for a view of fitness we don’t share. We know what we do and we do it well. Let’s keep it that way.
