INDIANA: CrossFit Executive Fired After Gym Cancels LGBT Pride-Themed Workout For “Celebrating Sin”

Indianapolis’ ABC affiliate reports:

An Indianapolis CrossFit gym has closed its doors after intense backlash over a canceled pride-themed workout. A note left on the door by the management of CrossFit Infiltrate, located on W. 9th Street along the Indy Canal, says they will “no longer operate” at the current location.

Several workers and members have left the gym after the gym’s owner, Brandon Lowe, sent an email out this week canceling a pride-themed workout.

Following a WRTV story about the canceled workout, CrossFit’s Chief Knowledge Officer Russell Berger Tweeted early Wednesday that he encouraged the gym’s decision to refuse to hold the workouts, and thanked them for standing by their convictions and “refusing to celebrate sin.”
