Top CrossFit executive Nicole Carroll is returning to the company three weeks after she resigned, she announced on Instagram on Monday.
Carroll, who was the company’s Director of Training, announced her resignation on June 7, one day after owner and then-CEO Greg Glassman posted an insensitive tweet about George Floyd. Glassman has since deleted his Twitter account.
Glassman has since stepped down as CEO and said he’s selling the company to Eric Roza, an affiliate gym owner in Colorado.
In the post announcing her return, Carroll said she was “greatly encouraged” by her recent conversations with Roza and that “there is hope and healing in the air for the community.”
Business Insider published an investigation June 21 in which former employees claimed the culture of the workplace demeaned women, operated off retribution, and was ruled by a fear of getting on Glassman’s bad side.

Her announcement comes three weeks after resigning amid backlash to founder and then-CEO Greg Glassman’s controversial tweet about George Floyd.
Carroll, who was CrossFit’s Director of Training, is one of the company’s longest-tenured employees, per Morning Chalk Up, an independent publication that exclusively covers CrossFit. Her June 7 resignation came one day after Glassman tweeted, “It’s FLOYD-19” in response to a tweet about racism being a public health issue.
