    Not my thing.....I play full court basketball 3 days a week and lift 3 days a week and that's good enough for me

    I feel like crossfit has some good ideas but it's like a cult and the people that do it get sucked in

    One of my friends definitely got in shape because of crossfit but his life revolves around his workouts, it's sad to see and we rip him up

    I've been crossfitting for almost two years and I've seen tremendous improvement in my strength and overall athletic ability. All workouts are scaleable. You want to push yourself but don't risk injury by going too heavy. I am 29, 5'9" and I weigh 165lbs. I have lost a little over 15 lbs in the last year by going at least 3x a week. Crossfit has been around for years but has in the past five really started to take off in popularity. It isn't going away.

    Used to do this, and I got paid for it. I called it "work".

    I agree it's not going away. I've been lifting for 30+ years. In my 30's, I was a competitive bodybuilder.

    Crossfit is by far the best, most intense, most complete workout I've ever done. I'm only 2 months in and i'm seeing fantastic results that I never thought I would.could see in my 50's.

    It is addictive though!!

    That's because body builders have a different view of their exercises. The guy I bought supplements from used to see me running on the treadmill or playing basketball 3 or 4 times a week and then he'd tell me I was going "too hard" and burning my muscle gains. I'd rather be athletic than massed. I believe in total body workouts, the traditional exercises (pull ups, dips, etc...), and cardio/sport training where you'll be doing some sort of sprinting.

    That said, I haven't been in the gym in a long time. I'm about to join up myself.

    I only bodybuilt for a few years. I've done everything from soup to nuts ( swimming, running, rowing, lifting, Nautilus, personal trainers etc., etc.) and Crossfit is by far the best workout I've ever done.

    Try Crossfit!!

    Just finished one today.

    100 straight bar snatched (10 x 10)
    100 kettlebell snatches (10 x 10)
    100 kettlebell swings (10 x 10)

    Not exactly cross fit, but I like to make **** up so I don't get bored.

    So 1 set is cycling through all 3 once.

    Straight bar: 95 lb
    Kettlebell for snatches: 53 lb
    Kettlebell for swings: 70 lb

    50 CTB pull ups ( aided, in my case)
    60 burpees

    Yeah, The burpees suck!!!

    This mornings WOD was easier.

    20-minute AMRAP ( as many reps as possible)

    10 jumping pullups ( standing on a box and jumping slightly to aid in the pullup)
    20 Jump rope singles
    200 meter run


    I did 8 rounds. My Jump rope sucks, and I'll probably never get a double under!!

    Crossfit changed my life. Started a year ago at 39 and just turned 40, finished my Level I training certification and have started a very successful Crossfit clothing brand www.thewodgod.com

    Theres so much misinformation about Crossfit out there, mostly from traditional exercisers that realize that non functional movement training is antiquated and not nearly as effective for improving fitness. Yes, people get hurt by using poor technique and improper scaling of exercises, just as they do in any other sport. All sports have risks, but teh percentage of injuries is relatively compared to what some people's perceptions are.

    As far as this sport being a fad, also thoughts from people taht dont understand or have never experienced what Crossfit is, within ten years it will be comparable to the Olympics, mark that down
