Yesterday a friend of mine told me CrossFit sounded like a pyramid scheme - people involved in it rave about it but refuse to give you specifics on what exactly is involved in the program. I thought this made a lot of sense and thought I'd add a quick post addressing the weird attitude of members of the CrossFit community. The primary reason nobody attempts to describe CrossFit is because of the natural variability inherent to the program. If we could quantify CrossFit as 20 pullups, 15 deadlifts, and 100 push-ups daily it would certainly make our lives easier. This simply isn't the case though. Every day most of the affiliates throughout the world are programming a different workout of the day. Each of these workouts have the potential to be completely unique from one another with different exercises, times, repetitions, weights, or rounds assigned by the trainers. Some of these workouts will never be repeated, others are staple benchmarks done every couple of months. So the question 'what do you do in a CrossFit class' is almost impossible to answer with a straight answer. We don't mean to sound like a pyramid scheme or a telemarketer or an infomercial but we simply don't have any other answer than 'it's great, it'll help you accomplish your physical goals, come try it.'
On an unrelated note, we want to put up pictures but we need to find the cord for the camera.
