I would like to see the facts on that,
I have been following Ross for a long time as well as this board and have never heard this mentioned before. Are sure you are not confusing him with Gym Jones?

P.S. Sorry for thread jack.

Yeah pretty sure he is making that little fact up. I don't think Ross has ever been directly associated with Crossfit, let alone an affiliate.

You've got your 10 Benchmarks of fitness mixed up. You left out the all important "accuracy."
