Hard work makes the body and mind respond, doesn't matter what you call it.
I agree. I don't think Mark Twight deserves all the trash-talk he's had come his way. Looking at Gym Jones workouts they resemble crossfit to a large degree, but the quantity is much larger. Probably because they are intended for elite athletes.

Also, one aspect that he brings up is periodization. I think that was his main critique towards crossfit. That and the fact that he lost some of his low-intensity edurance by only doing crossfit.
