    Home is where the fart is.
    I don't Crossfit, nor plan to, but how much is a "standard" membership cost?

    I think it's $130/month for 3x week. That's a small group with a trainer.

    To me that seems like a terrible deal, but maybe I'm just spoiled with the gym I go to. Plus what is the trainer doing anyways? There not creating a unique program to suit an individual. Maybe they're there to help with form and technique?

    Oh, I agree, that's why I put 'program' in quotation marks because truth be told, we may never really know if there's any method behind the madness that is the WOD, or is it just totally random.

    I completely agree with this statement. I just got into crossfit and its kicking my ass. I plan on staying with it until i no longer get any benefit from it.

    Having a program that kicks your ass does not make it effective. Crossfit is hard, but does it benefit you the most.

    It's completely random. That tubby in charge of Crossfit just writes something ridiculous like:
    WOD:
    Run a marathon
    Squat 1000 lbs for 500 reps
    Trek across Siberia
    Kill a bear
    Do 10 muscle-ups

    Post your times in the comments section...

    Naw, my post at the top of the page explains it, sorta. He has them on a strength program, then has them do Met-con finishers. He also incorporates some stuff from Ross Enamait as well as his own ideas. They're all similar sizes, for the most part, so there's a real competitive aspect. They finish right before my Muay Thai class and I gotta say, they guys impress the hell out of me for the most part.


    The guy's not just 'Crossfit', he has competitive Oly and Powerlifters training there as well, plus there's the Muay Thai/ BJJ there at night.

    Well I supose that their is a lot of variation in crossfit affliates. If the trainer can put together a program that suits the need of that group of people instrad of just being some random WOD then it might be worthwhile.

    Maybe it's fair to say that he incorporates crossfit elements in his training but isn't purely crossfit. To me that's a far better/different way of training than hardcore pure crossfit.

    Yes, that is a better way to put it. I should have just said it like that! And I agree, that is better, IMO.

    I'll give Glassman credit for one thing, his random ball machine gots lots and lots of balls in it.

    Back when I started this thread and got hated on so bad I also put a similar thread in the crossfit forum.
    They guy that owns Crossfit SLA emailed me and told me to check out his website and it is decidedly different than the main website as far as daily wods. He said the majority of his clients are fighter. Anyway thought it might interest some of you.
