It is if CF is your sport of choice. IF CF was ONLY a training methodology I would agree, but there are now CF games which to me makes anyone competing in them an athlete in that sport. The top CF athletes train specifically for the CF games, so although it is for broad based fitness, they have turned it into sport specific training since CF is now considered a sport.
