how much to people spend on crossfit a year do you reckon? the gym near me is now 175 a month, and i live in north carolina. throw in romaleos every other year, sleeves, probably some hybrid shoes, "fuck your mother" t-shirts, is there an RRG type registration fee for athletes? reebok belts im assuming, var, etc.

i think these people are paying like 3k a year to do this still.

Oh. Its there. Not just cf anymore, everyone seems to have adopted the go hard or go home mentality and everything is a test. I blame the no child left behind act.

I guess the record stands at roughly 17 years for the longest time someone could tolerate CrossFit and or crossfitters.

Today's NY Post
Researchers are warning that a potentially fatal kidney condition, that has been linked to Crossfit, is on the rise.
Rather meh rhabdo article that says nothing new and is probably using Crossfit as clickbait. Just wondering if there will be any resulting entertainment.

According to Max Schank, "During the CrossFit Games this year, over 25 MEN (and counting) have torn their pecs."

One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.
