Is my Facebook page name an example of nominative use?

Hi, I'm the admin of a facebook page called "Crossfit Babes" that shares photos of women doing Crossfit. I received a message today from a man named Russ Greene who is affiliated with Crossfit and claims that I am not authorized to use the name "Crossfit" on my page the way that I do. He has requested that I change the name to exclude the word "Crossfit".
Seeing as the photos my page posts are of women doing crossfit, there by needing the word to describe my page, and the fact that I make no claim to being sponsored or endorsed by crossfit, isn't my page an example of nominative use?
