Re: Why CrossFit is Exploding in popularity

actually a fair amount of the ladies at our box dress in capri tights and sports bras...as a married man it can be a distraction sometimes but when you get to know the people and see them everyday it really is like a community and you focus on the work instead.

Women was a big part of why I started if you really want to be honest. Of course it's not why I stuck around, but oh well.

Re: Why CrossFit is Exploding in popularity

My box is in a college town. There is no time to look at the girls if you are doing your workout right, besides, my wife goes with me.

Oh, yeah, and it just works. It is the only program I have seen that combines the strength conditioning with HIIT into a program anyone can do.

Re: Why CrossFit is Exploding in popularity

There are hot women at any gym you walk into, it's more than that. And as someone said, a lot of different programs work, so it's more than that.

To me, it's because CF works well for alot of today's society:

A large percentage of the population has no idea "how" to workout, especially complex lifts like the snatch or clean and jerk. I thought I had a decent lifting/fitness background after football and powerlifting but after two on ramp classes, I realized how little I actually knew. CF doesn't just walk you around the gym once, take your money and say "have fun." They teach you, train you and keep you accountable.

For those who have no idea how to program for themselves (yea that's me), don't worry, just walk in the door and we'll tell you exactly what to do.

For those who don't have time to work out, we've got early classes, late classes, lunch classes, weekend classes.

For those who've bounced around since high school looking for that way to fill a competitive void that beer league softball couldn't fill (yea that's me again), don't worry, we've got you covered.

For those who got awful bored with chest and back Tuesday's followed by lower body Thursdays, don't worry, you won't be bored here.

For those who just want to lose fat and get in shape, yea of course, we've got you covered.

And the best part is, it works for everyone. It's everything that America loves, a great big one size fits all snuggie that's quick, mindless yet effective. If it was cheap, we'd be more successful than the dollar menu at McDonald's.

Re: Why CrossFit is Exploding in popularity

In my area, the results are the main reason the popularity has grown. But the ladies are a plus once you get there =)
