John: You’re treading on very thin ice there.
This is one of those issues where the answer depends strongly upon the question you’re asking. If by “fitness” we mean something like “what proportion of your personal energy budget do you spend on the processes that cause muscle growth and fat loss?”, then perhaps we could all be considered fit, whether it be couch potatoes or super-fit athletes. However, if fitness means something different (does someone who can send a dude flying through the air hundreds of feet with a single punch really deserve to call themself fit?) – then no – I don’t think being extremely strong or fast at one particular activity makes you unfit.

The best thing about these plans is that they have an unlimited amount of moves for every exercise and there’s even a circuit training program in it – it is known by many as “The Strongest On Earth”. These plans work well if your goal is strength without killing yourself (crossfit 101), but it would be better yet if you replace 2-3 days per week with this routine and then add in some cardio…but we’ll get there later 🙂 If you don’t want to read EVERYTHING on this site right now and still think CrossFit may be right for you please do yourself a favor and check out: CLICK HERE>>> This blog post will give extensive guidelines (over 1000 words) about how the fitness industry has been taking advantage of us at each step when we’re trying to achieve our goals when getting healthy/ fit/ strong meaning their salesmen try to convince us that….what
