Read our full statement on our blog: https://www.redleaf.fit/post/crossfit-were-backRedLeaf Fitness, after careful consideration, has decided to embrace the CrossFit brand again, believing the changes promised by the new management team mean we can resume the journey with all its original promise.As we all know, insensitive comments by top leadership at CrossFit Home Office earlier this year cratered an already difficult relationship with boxes around the world, including at RedLeaf.But it was a tough decision to leave. Toronto’s RedLeaf Fitness had long believed that CrossFit is the most potent fitness vehicle in the world. No other methodology can deliver results that are as broad, lasting, and dynamic. Is this Episode Coach Michelle and Coach Sean speak from the heart about what it means to them to return to the brand they fell in love with over 10 years ago.  They believed in its ability to bring people together, to share in a common goal, and to inspire each other to be better.  CrossFit has helped us all through rough times. It has been the tool that shapes the lives of the people we work with.  And it is the common thread that brings us together. We are excited to become an affiliate again because of the changes that CrossFit has committed to making. We believe in Roza, and we believe that he understands the challenges facing the affiliates.
