Crossfit style spreading!

Nearly all the gyms and trainers in the Lansing, Michigan area are now offering at least one Crossfit Style class. Kinda funny. I'm a YMCA member and there are several "functional fitness" classes I can take if I want to spend an extra $60 every 4-6 weeks.

I was at the Ritzy gym in this area called the MAC and their huge weightroom now has all of the "Crossfit Warmup" stuff right by each other. Nobody's calling it Crossfit, but you can see the influence. There's a lot of kool-aid going around.

Re: Crossfit style spreading!

Body pump, kick boxing and boot camp classes were supposed to be the same thing, but over time they got watered down and made easier (boot camp class with no pullups, wtf). They may have the equipment, but i doubt they will have the technique, intensity, longevity or community.

We will see.

Re: Crossfit style spreading!

I'm also in the "we'll see" camp on this one. From what I've seen, a lot of these things utilize movements and/or equipment CF deploys but are totally lacking in what IMO really defines CF - intensity. It's not surprising, given that intense workouts are hard and lots of people don't like doing hard things, but it seems to be so. Again, we'll see.

I see lots of people squatting, but few of them correctly or heavy
