    There have been numerous threads on it in this forum. Do a search and you should come up with some. I'd do it for you but I'm lazy.

    edit - I will comment it's good ****.

    No, it's just a fitness program. It's a very good one though, definitely worth doing if you have the discipline to pull it off.

    From what I have seen of crossfit it looks a pretty decent programme but it depends alot on your goals. What are you training for?

    Special Forces selection. Figure I got about a year to train for it. I like the simplistic approach that crossfit seems to take. I've never been big on gyms, half the equipment there looks like time machines and people dress like it's a fucking gap commercial.
