Informative Speech on CrossFit for University

Hey, guys

I have an assignment coming up soon - I want your help--well, more specifically, your opinion. I am supposed to give a 5-minute [which is dramatically too short a time] informative speech on a topic; I chose CrossFit. I really want to know what the community would consider to be the most important values of CrossFit I should relate to my class.
I already have a general idea of what I want to talk about:

1) What is CrossFit? (it's origins, community and it's main goal)
2) How does CrossFit benefit me - intuitively, why should you do it? (its methods, results and functions)
3) How can I start Crossfit? (from the box to the garage)

Do you guys think that these key points can best summarize what CF is and why an individual should do it?

Re: Informative Speech on CrossFit for University

Joseph, I just did an informative speech for a Comm. class I had to take recently and you are right, 5 minutes flies by before you even get to expand on the material that you would like to cover. From doing informative, persuasive, etc. speeches, one thing I would advise is to get a rough sketch of what you want to say i.e. the main points and actually run through it for time to ensure that you are not rushing through it. Do you also have to cite reputable sources for your information? Also, for #2 keep an eye on focusing more on relaying information instead of trying to persuade someone to do CF.
