depends on where you go, but that's generally about the cost per month. most of the time that entitles you to open gym privileges where you can work out as often or as much as you want. if you have LEO/FD/mil/first responder friends, they might be able to get a discount for you under their name. CF is huge with support to those guys. You could also just make your own home gym for pretty cheap and follow the WODs based on the website. I did that for the longest time - even made our own row machine. Sure it wasn't pretty and didn't "work", but the thought was there. The cost for the gym is because you're not only paying to help keep the doors open (for usually small business owners - chances are they don't have the numbers visiting as a globo-gym), but also the equipment, the coach's knowledge, but more importantly the camraderie that is associated with the group suffering and the subsequent connection/motivation/competition amongst the other people. just my humble opinion

I just don't like the mechanics of CrossFit. I've seen some of the competitions on TV and thought that some of the "exercise" movements they do are a recipie for injury. Not saying that you can't get a great workout with CrossFit, but you can get the same workout and intensity doing it by yourself, but it takes discipline. CrossFit is the latest and greatest fad IMHO.

I like crossfit because IN MODERATION, you build functional fitness, mobility, flexibility and the such. Sure, repping 500lbs is cool, but how are you going to use that in real life? How do you wipe your mud butt when you are a body builder? There are the Rich Fronings of the world who take it and become fanatics about it, and good for them. I've seen plenty of that in my time in Iraq and Afghanistan loljk. I do what I can, and when my body says no mas, it means no mas.

That's why I DO like CrossFit. Functional = life saving

Because repping 500lbs is fucking cool. I may think that most body builders go a bit far for my tastes, but its awesome to see what the human body can look like and achieve.

As far as ass wiping, that's why I take my dumps in the backyard. Just turn on the garden hose and spray away.

Body building and crossfit is like bud light to miler light, not the same. For most body builders dobt like cardio, and most crossfit people dont like isolation muscle movements.

And to answer when would you ever rep 500lbs??? When you get to drunk amd bring home big sue ann home. While yoyr getting rapped, by a 400lb chick, you're going to wish you had that upoer body

Clarification: it's open to attend seven days a week. You aren't limited (other than by your body) to attending x-number of sessions a week.

I'm not saying I rep 500lbs because I can't, but if you're bringing a 400lbs woman home you've got more problems than upper body strength.

For real, you should probably be doing more dead lifts and squats for the fat chicks.

Go big or go home. Dead lift and squat the fat chick while you're at it. Train like you fight, right?

That's an all in one crossfit workout for free... All you have to deal with is the shame and self loathing afterwards...

I think at that point "shame" and "self-loathing" aren't in your vocabulary. That got thrown out the window a long time ago.

I don't have any experience with fat chicks.... We should ask Dennis what his thoughts are. He likes bagging whales from time to time.

Just put the food on the top shelf, it's not like a step stool can hold her. So when she's leaves to eat just double dead bolt the door and sprinkle some bacon down the street and she won't come back.

Thats what im saying, its open 7 days a week. But most people get to sore to do 7 days. No matter how often you do crossfit, you should still be sore the next day.

fantastic waste of bacon imho. tell her you're taking her to golden corral, then when she finally squeezes through the door to load up on her forklift, lock it behind her, hoping she can't build up ramming speed.

The only bad thing with that is the potential to have a pissed off hungry fat woman on a forklift trying to get back inside your house... Normally when I see a fat girl I treat her like a T-Rex. I just stay still and hope they only see movement...
