If that's the case, tell me! I just wanted to see if this would perhaps create discussion and let me see some opinions.
Yes, the various Crossfit exercises do promote balance and coordination to some degree.

Whether that is sufficient depends on your goals. For general fitness, probably fine. For specialized demands, you would want to modify your training to match those demands.
