"In Implementation, it looks like a sport. This is revolutionary. It's as distinctive of the program as are the movements and the charter of functionality and variance. Our workouts are competitive events.
The strength and value of Crossfit lies entirely with in our dominance of other athletes. This is a truth divined through competition, not debate.
