I got the chance to drop by Crossfit HQ on Sunday. I just want to re-iterate that this program and concept is truly drawing together some quality folks. It's not just the workouts or the program, but most everyone I have interacted with tied into this have been genuine, caring and motivated to help others.

I couldn't agree more. All of the CF'ers I've met - in New York and Santa Cruz, trainers and trainees alike, have been incredibly wonderful people.

I also train MMA with a Straight Blast Gym here in NYC (which, epistemologically, seems to be the martial arts sibling of the CF approach), and have noticed the same thing with that group. Straight Blast's founder, Matt Thornton, has posited it's due to the 'put up or shut up' nature of the training, and I think that explains things at CrossFit as well.

Anywhere people put aside posturing in favor of performance, where people publicly push themselves - day in and day out - to the limits of their ability, seems to attract folks who actually care more about improving themselves than about 'looking good', and folks who therefore are thrilled to help others improve alongside them.

CrossFit: like really sweaty group therapy.

I had the great privilege about a month ago to attend a Saturday workout at CFHQ. As Roger and Josh have couldn't possibly find a better crew of people. I was immediately welcomed and made to feel like an old friend.

There's really something special out there at HQ, and I'd heartily recommend that if you can you get out there for a visit. It's worth it, no matter how short you have to cut it.

I'm looking forward to my next trip out.

All I can do is echo what these guys are saying. I made it there for a single training session, and even if you're a sub-par CrossFitter like me you get treated with the utmost hospitality. I'll definitely be back.
