Why is CrossFit important to study?
“CrossFit has taken the fitness world by storm — not only by becoming popular (jogging was popular, step aerobics was popular) — but also by clearly defining what “fitness” means. With its solid, functional movements, clear results and growing popularity, CrossFit looks like it will remain fitness champion for years.”
