Cross Fit Inc. recently filed a lawsuit against the NSCA. NSCA denies the allegations and claims made against it by CrossFit and will vigorously defend itself against this baseless lawsuit. At the center of the lawsuit is a research article published in NSCA’s Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.
