Katrin Davíðsdóttir is calling what she sees while btwbapp is bringing CrossFit community leaders together for a discussion around issues, solutions, and keeping the CrossFit community together.
Katrin Davíðsdóttir has a strong voice in the CrossFit community…she is one of the sports most beloved athletes, trained by one of the top coaches, Ben Bergeron, face of some of CrossFit’s biggest brands, and…oh yeah a two time CrossFit Games Champion.
Today Katrin let the world know how she felt, she was looking for change but called out the lack thereof…
At the same time others, such as btwbapp (Beyond the Whiteboard) are trying to find answers.
btwbapp aka Beyond the Whiteboard is an all in one CrossFit app, they have been connecting boxes with their members since 2008. What began as a platform to track workouts quickly became a medium for programming, sharing videos, and as of 2017, an official CrossFit app.
Today they gathered some of the most notable names in CrossFit for an Affiiate Panel in an effort to bring the community together and find solutions.
“Earlier today we held a panel for community leaders to discuss problems, offer possible solutions and, most importantly, advocate on behalf of #CrossFit affiliates. The conversation was honest and, at times, emotional. But it was all for a shared goal to move the CrossFit community closer together, and in the right direction. Newly appointed CrossFit CEO, @thedavecastro, confirmed with us that his team was not only listening but welcomed the feedback during their planning process. This is a painful moment, but we are hopeful we can move forward together, toward an even stronger CrossFit community. We think it’s fair to give CrossFit HQ adequate time to put together a plan for the future. The first step was being honest and being heard. That happened today. #KeepTheCommunityTogether“
