Great advice, Steve and Robby.

Personally, when I think of Crossfit, I think of injury. As a teenager, I did heavy training for martial arts and I got hurt. My teachers would train weightlifters from the gym next door for a few weeks and then have me spare with them. The last guy I fought had 85 lbs. on me at the time and he was actively trying to injure me (he succeeded). I should have been hurt more often than I was, but I was lucky. Crossfit reminds of that same sort of mentality where they encourage people to push forward without regard to their body.

Here is an interesting article from the NYTimes about Crossfit that is worth reading: “Getting Fit, Even if it Kills You”
