Why Do People Think Crossfit Is A Cult?

Sugar Bear? Really?! That is the best thing I have heard all day. They need to cancel that show and just send him to Iraq for a few years.

Really, the whole question of “What’s in it for me?” is what hurts them most. Plus we can’t seem to wrap our heads around the whole crossfit idea. Is it really about getting strong and fit, or does it have something else in mind? What if we think outside the box and come up with something different altogether, something fun and enjoyable and encouraging for people who don’t want to get competitive with other peoples results but love doing exercises that make real measurable progress towards building strength, endurance, speed and flexibility… In short: IS Crossfit a cult then?

What Are The Events At The Crossfit Games?

The Crossfit Games are organized by the International Crossfit Games Association, Inc. (ICGA), based in New York City and run by a group of volunteers and employees operating as a not-for-profit organization. There is currently no formal qualification process to participate; athletes can sign up at any level of competition. The majority of competitors come from across the United States, but athletes from more than fifty countries compete during the Crossfit Games period, which lasts for three months (from late July to mid-September). The top men and women (plus twins) who participate in each event qualify for an individual final through continental qualifying rounds called Regionals. Individuals then play off against other qualified athletes – aggregate scores determine the overall winner who then becomes part of Team USA or competes as an individual at the 2012 Reebok Classics later that month (the first three days on August 8th through 10th). All decision to disqualify any athlete who fails to meet his/her amateur status will be determined solely by the ICGA member federation holding their respective weight class(es). Any protest must be submitted via email to crossfittournaments@gmail.com within four weeks following the completion of competition events. If no response is received within this time frame, protests are automatically ruled in favor of Team USA.< /p>
