I went through 10 of those profiles and not a single mention of a measureable strength increase and one mention of reducing a sprint tri time. But every single profile had weightloss and fat loss numbers.

Jamie,
The first talks about more endurance for her job, the second about healthier knees, and the third about being stronger and more confident. Those are performance improvements, even without the numbers. (I only went through three)

I might talk about my CF progress in terms of a faster swim and better pullup numbers, not raw tonnage on the squat bar. That doesn't negate the performance aspect.

There are numbers for fat and weight loss and none for performance. What type of performance you are concerned with isn't important as a listing of it's improvement with the same care as appearance based improvements

But as a recruiting tool for people getting started, I think it was great.
I liked that they talked about the attitude change, feeling better, stronger- even the looking better part. I would think the majority of crossfit "shoppers" are people starting out and new to this.
The pictures were amazing!

I would like to see numbers in there too though. Maybe what they started out lifting and what they are now? or a benchmark time then and now. And some people looking into joining that place may be familiar with CF already.
*But, to the average person those things dont matter...But they WILL
