Re: Do Not Cross Crossfit

Showing up 20 minutes late to a lecture you're giving - classy!

Also, it may be Seattle; but he's a little late on the grunge movement.

Re: Do Not Cross Crossfit

The author did seem a little harsh on Coach*, but the overall article was interesting and mostly positive towards the community.

*This, in particular, didn't really seem necessary:

"ROLE MODEL Glassman is no longer living the life himself, but he inspires fierce loyalty in some of the world's fittest people."

Just because he might not workout himself doesn't mean he didn't create a good workout for everyone else.

The author never made that claim.

It was a derogatory comment pointing out that Coach doesn't CrossFit but is still revered. It was not a derogatory comment about CrossFit the methodology, as you implied.

As a matter of fact, I didn't read any judgement, positive or negative, of CrossFit the methodology. Instead, the article was focused almost entirely on Coach and CrossFit (the business).

Re: Do Not Cross Crossfit

This was the most interesting line of the whole article to me:

(This month, the finals of the CrossFit Games will be broadcast live on ESPN2.)
Have I been living under a rock or have they announced that?
