If your goals hadn't changed and Crossfit got this popular, would you still have quit?
Yes, eventually. I loved my gym and the people there and I would never bash it, but with increased popularity comes a change in culture, personnel, etc, and it lost the appeal it had for me when I started and there were only 50 members. Living 40 minutes fro the gym and with small kids at home, I was never big into the social aspect of Crossfit anyway, which is a big part of the culture that draws so many people in.
