Tragedy can strike at any moment. For CrossFit Arsenal, it struck in the fall of 2018.
A telephone pole fell and the gym caught fire. In the end, the space was unusable. Owner Jason Gee said there was class going on at the time, but miraculously no one got hurt. However, he’s faced unbelievable challenges since, including fighting the larger corporations responsible for the telephone pole.
In this episode of Box Talk, Gee shares the story of what happened. He explains how they made a business function out of a back alley for months, the hardships that have been ever present and the fantastic community behind it all. Most importantly, he shares why the fight for justice goes beyond just this single fire and is a flag raised for all small businesses out there.
