As I read through the comments I notice that a lot of people are improvising and substituting and making do.
I used to chock that up to inadequately outfitted gyms, but the comments I see now give me the impression that more people are trying to make crossfit work in their basement and their backyard.
To me, that is a hopeful sign of a fitter, saner future. It means that people are opening themselves up to functionality and variance, but it also means that more people are finding the confidence to exercise outside the 'meat market' gyms. Most importantly, perhaps, it means that people are taking fitness outside the capitalist, corporate control of 24-Hour Fitness and World Gym and personalizing it--making it something more real and more permanent.
