  1. Agreed. There’s another huffington post article floating around here that has my non-crossfit supporting friends and family all wrapped up in trying to perform an intervention or something to talk me out of crossfit. It can get exhausting trying to project the “this makes me happy. I’m not hurting myself or anyone else. So leave me alone” :p

  2. My uncle is a Crossfit hater..and a runner/triathlete. That guy has more overuse injuries than ANYONE i’ve ever met-in or out of the box .But that doesn’t phase him-he just accepts it as part of running. Yet i said i tweaked my back during Crossfit total (stupid) and he rants about the inherent dangers of it.

    Eventually, if you do something high intensity and long enough and enough times, you WILL get injured. When i ran long distances I literally was injured every 8-10 months with some sort of overuse injury and would have to scale back. When I trained muay thai I had cracked ribs, broke little bones in my feet and had shoulder issues. I’ve only had one issue with Crossfit-in 16 months.
