CROSSFIT’S RECENT STATE ACTION ON BEHALF OF AFFILIATES

With the help of affiliates across the country, CrossFit, Inc. has identified states  (including Washington) with legislation that threatens affiliates’ right to train their clients and fight chronic disease or that imposes onerous financial costs on their small businesses.

WASHINGTON

CrossFit affiliates in Washington contacted CrossFit, Inc. on Feb. 1, 2019, concerned that their state legislature was considering a bill that could harm their businesses with unlimited fees, insurance requirements, and other red tape.

On Feb. 13, the relevant Senate committee held a public hearing on the bill, which would implement sanitation and safety standards for gyms (a one-size-fits-all approach meant to keep large-scale gyms from allowing their pools and showers to become health and safety risks). As initially drafted, the bill meant burdensome fees and extra insurance requirements for affiliates, no matter their size.

With the help of Washington affiliates, CrossFit, Inc. suggested amendments that narrowed the bill’s scope and limited its ambiguity, mitigating the threat to affiliates. The committee heard the message and has voted to limit the scope of the bill to apply only to large-scale gyms in the state. This is a win for CrossFit’s Washington affiliates, which will be spared the additional fees and requirements.
