Wow. Anyone care to comment on this article? I have a feeling CrossFitters might have some opinions on it.

Saw this a while back in the Camera...here were my initial thoughts:

1) Kids should be allowed to "play"

2) I live in Boulder and love what Boulder has to offer but some of these people are just crazy

3) Who thought this up to begin with? There are a lot of other things that could be done with the time, money, expertise...

Just my 2 cents :)

My first thought was, You might be genetically suited to some sort of sport in particular but if it doesn't inspire you who cares. Find what you love to do, then you'll practice your ass off to get better. And thus will almost inevitably beat the person with natural ability but no drive.
Of course those with natural ability and drive are going to be amazing
