Is CrossFit just an unhealthy cult?
Some people find community, support, and achievement at CrossFit. And let’s face it, the cult of not exercising and eating garbage is a much bigger problem in America than dedicated exercisers.
Wow. Death analogies and talk of surrender? Sounds kinda cult-y…
Death is not the
greatest loss in life.
The greatest loss is what
dies inside while you’re still
alive. NEVER SURRENDER [?] !

Some of us are perfectly fine with who we are today and don’t need to achieve all the time. Should your life’s greatest accomplishment really be your workout? You’re not doing something noble like building wells in developing nations, you’re just picking up heavy shit and putting it down repeatedly.
Our Greatest Daily Battle is between who we can be tomorrow and who we were yesterday.

But isn’t it valuable to pursue challenges? If people feel physically and mentally engaged with a community and an exercise regimen they enjoy, isn’t that a good thing?
If it doesn’t challenge you,it wont change you!

CrossFit has become notorious for injuries, and many experts critique the form people use to train as well as the extreme, all-or-nothing mindset.
The controversial fitness regimen is practiced by over 13,000 people in affiliated gyms, but is CrossFit dangerous? https://t.co/LF0Gs9HABs

Any physical activity carries some sort of risk, but doing nothing is actually the worst possible habit for your health.
People are still saying @Crossfit is #Dangerous? How 2011. https://t.co/hCNmCz1Xuq
