    13 Tips for Choosing a CrossFit Gym

    If you are considering CrossFit, you might find this post helpful: 13 Tips for Choosing a CrossFit Gym.

    I polled several of my CrossFit coaching friends for advice and tips targeted at a person who doesn't know what questions to ask or what to look for.

    Nice...

    In my town, it is fairly simple.. Go to the one option we have or don't.

    Thanks for the posting. However it does have a lot to do w/ location. I've been thinking about it but it's either the one 10 minutes from my house or the one 5 minutes from work. I'm not slogging a half hour+ in city traffic to get to a gym and then back again, so it's either them or nothing.

    Crossfit is definitely a fitness movement with exponential growth. My hometown still only has one box though. Not so much a choice as it is a lack of options.

    I'm pretty sure it's not - even if it is - it's just plain dangerous. How can they even use the CF logo?

    These are called "continental cleans" or "anyhows" but this is a very poor example of them. And how exactly can they call themselves "Veteran Crossfit Athletes"? I'm assuming they mean veteran as in a couple of years or so.

    LMFAO, that video is perfect. How can people stand around and watch this and think everything is cool? That question is rhetorical I would love Mark Rippetoe to walk in and take a look at these people.

    Thanks for posting that video. I needed a good laugh. Why would a gym post a video of people demonstrating terrible form with no coach in sight?
    I felt bad for the girl in the blue shirt. She had plenty of strength to get that bar overhead, just bad techique. I am not a great coach, but I could have helped her in about two minutes of coaching.
