Thank you very much to those with helpful comments rather than unhelpful (and somewhat rude) remarks. I am a personal trainer and maintain a body fat typically around 13-15%, but sometimes drop to 11, which I don't sustain for long and don't try to. My BMI is healthy (though at the lower end), because I already have a good muscle base. I don't want to look like a man, which I personally feel a lot of crossfit advertises for women. I want a feminine physique which I feel I have being a chronic cardio girl. Thus, I am a bit fearful of changing my routine since it works for me and I have the body I want. Mark's book was intriguing and I learned a lot in his fitness insights, I guess I'm just afraid of giving up what I know works (at least from outward appearances). There are a lot of cultures sustained for generations on distance running and as a trainer, I know what happens from experience when my clients and myself use explosive movements with heavy weights. I was just looking for more insight into the topic as it has my wheels turning! I guess I will keep on reading and learning. Thank you again!

I want to go primal in fitness but don't want the 'crossfitter body'
