i have been religiously following the WOD for about the last 2 months, paleo for about 3 1/2 months, and have seen tremendous results.

i was just curious what are the reasons some of you do Crossfit? What sports or activities do you participate in and train for?

I do it for the challenge, overall fitness, to fight boredom, to augment my brazilian jiu jitsu, and to try to haul my sorry *** from the lower levels of strengthdom.:smile:

Matthew:

I am a purple belt under Sylvio Behring and Marcio Corleta. They both are in Brazil. Currently, I am in graduate school so I don't get much time to train jiu jitsu. By the time I am done with school, I will probably be a white belt. Right now, I just train when I can with a few guys in my area. I am also dabbling a bit in Thai boxing.

i'm thinking about getting into bjj, but i am already into a lot of other things at the moment.

actually started crossfit because i was supposed to be going to denali in alaska this coming june to climb the west rib in a single, non-stop push, alpine style, but plans fell through mostly because of school.

now that i'm back in new jersey i don't have access to the mountains like i did in colorado crossfit keeps me in shape, so the few times i actually get to climb something big i'm not sucking wind.

so i guess most of the people here come from a martial arts background?

any other climbers here? (i've tried to get some climbing buddies on crossfit and they would rather stick to their pizza and beer diet and work out a little as possible. unbelievable!

I practise and study submission wrestling. I am employed as a police officer and Defensive Tactics instructor. Crossfit keeps my knife sharp.
Working in a combative field, crossfit helps me to stay on top. I find that it also gives me an attitude, so mentaly its for the edge.

Good to know that some police officers besides myself are involved in Crossfit. Crossfit style training is what's necessary for officers who are out patrolling: an explosive combination of strength, stamina, and coordination. I also started up BJJ again, so the Crossfit routines compliment the grappling. I'm always trying to get my buddies to give Crossfit a try, but so far with no luck.
