I certainly wouldn't want to be the person coming in after you to use that bar...

Re: Anti-Crossfit Resistance?!?

Thats alright, i fell off a treadmill (like in cartoons where you fly against the back wall) in the middle of a particularly difficult workout (cant remember which one) and just started laughing hysterically and got back up and kept running right away...people looked at me like i was insane.

Smile Re: Anti-Crossfit Resistance?!?

I agree with most of the comments here.

Although I haven't experienced any outright hostility, I do get weird looks from the neighbors when we do the WOD in my garage gym and when we go and mix it up at the local college track.

I am slowly learning not to let it get to me. The results will speak for themselves and people will see it. Feel great about what you're doing because it's going to change your life for the better in so many ways.

Stay positive and don't let anyone get you down!
