"Oh Crossfit?- I've never heard of that." - Nobody ever
Our Weekly video:
You probably have a strong fact based opinion on the subject.
I have noticed a very popular trend in the fitness community- the people who are so passionately against ANYTHING in fitness, have rarely tried the event they are morally opposed to.
It's excruciatingly pathetic.
How the flying fuck can you give a good/honest opinion about something you have never tried or succeeded at? (See - The American Education System.)
All of this to say, after years of dogging on Crossfit, I gave it a shot.
I KNOW I KNOW. I have sinned against our Lord- The Iron, but I had to find out for myself.
So, after a few months of trying it out, here is the good and bad about Crossfit, from an objective fitness brofessional.
1. People get results
We get so caught up in the right and wrong way to do shit we forget why people are in the gym in the first place- To get results.
Watch this video of Jay Cutler's Back workout: HERE. Roughly 90% of that shit was done with really shitty form. But guess what, he's getting results.
LISTEN CLOSELY, I'm not saying you should lift with improper form, but if you shit on Crossfitters for not doing everything by the book, make sure to spread your hate around appropriately. Those people are getting results.
2. It can be a community of Bros
Very few gyms or exercise organizations come close to Crossfit's community. In fact, I would say there is not one other fitness organization, I can think of, with a group of people so dedicated to it.
This community provides all sorts of articles and videos of people trying to help you improve. And if you dig deep enough, it is pretty easy to find a community of bros who love sex, beer, and lifting weights. And yeah, Crossfit gets a lot of hate from other people, but when did you start worrying about what other people thought of you?
A smart Crossfitters response: I started today with 12 fucks and ended the day with a dozen, how many fucks did I give?
3. It's competitive
You're a bro, so I assume you like competition.
You will never lift as hard as you will when you're surrounded by other people competing in the same event.
Our DNA code drives us to best our fellow bros in just about every worldly competition. Crossfit provides this competition on a daily basis and it's the reason I started in the first place.
Not only that, you can even compare yourself to bros ALL OVER THE WORLD by looking at times and lifts. That sort of competition can be frightening, but will encourage you to get off your self decieving ass and realize you should do something about it.
