I have seen my ck levels go through the roof after rugby matches, due to muscle damage, and I assume crossfit has a similar effect.

They should have also tested a CK-MB, and given a ratio, and also tested a troponin, which are both much more specific markers to cardiac injury.

Also, an extremely high CK is one of the markers for rhabdo.(rhabdomyolysis).

I would say find a new doc, or have a in depth chat with this one about your goals/lifestyle.
