The goals of this discussion board are to expand our understanding and knowledge of fitness and physical training, and to encourage each other in our pursuit of our personal fitness. If these are not your goals, you may find another discussion site more suitable.

Users of this board are expected to adhere to the following guidelines. By posting to the forum you agree to abide by them.

While CrossFit is not edited or censored, we do reserve the right to remove any postings that are considered inappropriate.

Examples of inappropriate posts are those that are massively off-subject or exist solely to advertise a product; contain pornography, obscene material, racist material, any hate group material, materials promoting violence, threats or illegal acts, etc. Any such postings will result in immediate and permanent banishment of the poster.

These guidelines are intended to help maintain a useful amount of order and to promote better posting. They may be revised without notice.

Users of CrossFit should also understand that this is a privately owned site and that they are guests here. The owner reserves the right to revoke posting privileges and, when necessary, to permanently ban individuals.

We require a high level of respect to be shown at all times to other users of the board. Insults (either direct or indirect), bickering, and flaming of any kind will lead to suspensions and/or banishment from the board. Tolerance level for this behavior is extremely low.

Users are encouraged to make use of the many excellent resources available before posting a question. In particular, all are encouraged to read the free CrossFit Journal issue What is fitness? (available on CrossFit's main page) for a discussion of the CrossFit approach to fitness and training. Additionally, Lynne Pitts maintains an excellent Crossfit FAQ site, and there is an outstanding search functionality that will scan all prior posts to this board, and all prior workouts and posted comments for any text string you search for.

The use of your own legal name is a prerequisite for posting to the board. We believe this is an essential component of open and honest dialogue.

Posting under false or multiple identities is strictly prohibited. Users suspected of doing so will be asked to provide identification--for example, a faxed driver's license showing actual legal name.

An exception to the real name policy may be made where there are valid security concerns (e.g. law enforcement, active duty military, etc.). Please contact a moderator if you feel you are unable to post using your actual name.

Polite dissent or disagreement is encouraged. Polite disagreement with well-reasoned arguments and evidence is even more encouraged.

Do lead by example - Nothing improves a forum more than posters who reason sharply, write well, and have some perspective about their subject. Be one of them.

Please preview your posts. Read them aloud to yourself, if possible (don't get fired if you're doing this at work). You can preview as many times as you like, but you only get to post it once.

Please don't use the board for personal announcements and profiteering. A discretely placed website reference is generally considered acceptable, but the board is not a place for non-CrossFit organizations to advertise their programs. Commercial postings may be allowed by regular forum contributors at the moderators' discretion.

Posts that exist primarily to complain about how other fitness sites handle their pricing, marketing, user policies, or other aspects of board management belong on that site, not on CrossFit.

This forum is not your personal soap-box for advancing whatever personal agenda or vendetta you may be on.

Finally, don't be a whiner - If you really, really find the board not to your liking, learn to live with it, or move along.
