Yesterday, CrossFit HQ deactivated many of its social media accounts. The CrossFit, CrossFit Games, CrossFit Training and CrossFit Affiliates accounts on Instagram and Facebook were all shut down. CrossFit Health’s Facebook page is still up, but the Instagram account is no longer available.

There is still some CrossFit content on social media. On Twitter, the @CrossFit and @CrossFitGames are still online. @CrossFit posted Wednesday’s WOD last night on schedule. The last @CrossFitGames tweet was a repost of Annie Thorisdottir on Monday.

Additionally, CrossFit’s YouTube channel is still up along with all of the archived CrossFit Games event footage.

CrossFit has not responded to our inquiry about their social media strategy going forward. Stay tuned to The Barbell Spin as this story develops.
