This may be old news but I saw it today, and could not find it anywhere on here

Well, at least it will drive the "grunters" and the "breathers" away from the big boxes and more towards small boxes like CF--along with reducing the pathetic effects that most people achieve at big box gyms anyway! (no offense intended to CFers at big boxes)

Much discussed last October/November when it happened . . . use the search function for "Planet Fitness" to find prior threads, like this one:

(work and family safe link to prior discussion, although there are lots of links within that one)

No big deal, and welcome to CrossFit.

Didn't want to stifle you . . . just to let you know what had gone down before. Thanks for posting the "w/f s" designation on your link.

i know i'm preaching to the choir here, but:

so, grunting is intimidating and therefore should not be allowed. does that mean that lifting more weight than anyone in the gym (which can be intimidating) should not be allowed?

also, is grunting macho if women are doing it?

and shame on them for using clips of oly-lifters in their anti-grunting propaganda.

Along with grunting, there's no dropping stuff. Several years ago I was deadlifting at a World Gym and lost my grip on a warm-up set when I simply wasn't paying attention and rather than risk my membership, I caught it with my left thigh and strained something in my hip. It became so painful I didn't deadlift again for months. I dont' think anyone there wanted me to get injured but I know they were happy I stopped deadlifting which, considering their logo, is ironic.

Anybody watch the video and see the pathetic form tha the trainer was using?

Also, why do we as a society feel like we need everyone to feel comfortable. If you are freaked out by my grunting, why is that my fault?

Now if I grunt, and then bark at you, I'll agree to being thrown out after that.
