SicFit: 25 Ways CrossFit is changing Fitness and Changing the World

1.    Irreverence – There is an irreverent attitude that pervades CrossFit.  As a result sacred cows are routinely sacrificed (makes the best steak), edgy humor flourishes (inevitable when workouts involve snatches and jerks).  Limits are pushed because people in CrossFit challenge the status quo.  We workout in boxes, yet think  outside the box.  Instead of an hour on the hamster wheel dreadmill, a complete full body workout can be done in 10 minutes working both strength and cardio, and actually delivering results.

2.   CrossFit is freely  available. CrossFit workouts are posted daily and free.  If you need to learn an exercise you can watch a video of the exercise, or even the entire workout.  If you want to learn more, CrossFit has a forum, and many free CrossFit Journal articles.  Like inner city crack dealers hooking new people, CrossFit gives everyone a taste.  Fran and our other signature workouts are the gateway drug.  People quickly become addicted and need their “fix.”  Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated.

3.   Varied workouts.  CrossFit prepares people for the unknown and unknowable.  Life doesn’t always come neatly packaged so why should a workout?  Change is a constant.  CrossFit workouts are like my sister’s cooking…I’m never quite sure what to expect, satisfying, yet known to cause occasional puking.  Daily surprise challenges train us to embrace change both in the gym and in life.   As people get results “can’t” transforms to “can”, and then into “what else is possible?”
