A CrossFit ‘Inspirer’ Used A Holocaust Memorial To Do Handstands On

CrossFit members love nothing more than to talk about the cult of CrossFit and why you should join CrossFit, bro, and why haven’t you joined CrossFit yet? Well, here’s one good reason: You may not want to associate with someone who uses a Holocaust memorial to do handstands on.

Dave Driskell, a 36-year-old “inspirer/CrossFit coach” who’s ranked #102 for CrossFit in Asia, recently had a long layover in Berlin, so, he decided to visit the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and, naturally, showed off his physical prowess to his Instagram followers. He claims he wasn’t aware of the significance of the concrete slabs, telling Gawker, “I feel completely terrible as I would never purposely offend or disrespect this memorial had I known,” but that didn’t prevent his nearly 70,000 should-have-known-better followers from being offended.

At least he didn’t do pushups in the Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks that are less than 0.2 miles from the Memorial. That would have been REALLY offensive.
