    Late to this thread. But, I think this is one thing that Crossfit really gets right - just train sensibly and hard so that you meet some relatively lofty athletic goals, and you'll look like the best "you" you're gonna look like - and that's unlikely to resemble Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie, since you don't have their bone structure / proportions (as in, torso length to femur length ratio, etc.)
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    I agree- since starting cross fit, I've noticed my shoulders getting broader, butt getting higher and legs loosing fat and slowly, arms toning. Anyone I meet who has been doing it for 6 months or more looks great- defined muscles, flat tummies. There are none of the flabby people or overly thin people like you see at running events.

    Just ran into another one:

    • Anabolic androgenic steroids
    • Growth hormones
    • Insulins

    I'm sure you can get most of it in your local gym if you ask the right people. Now, tell me again how much you're willing to sacrifice to get it done.
