A cult/organization of failed athletes who are coached by trainers that have purchased online certifications claiming to be world class olympic lifters.
Facilities offering 'functional' training by incorporating epileptic pull up techniques, high intensity olympic lifts and other circus acts posing as strength development methodologies.
Workouts are comprised of a heap of confusing exercises at high repetition with no result driven motivation.
If this method of training does not make you puke while performing it will make you puke by observing.
Athlete A: Dude your swinging pull ups make you look so hardcore.
Athlete B: Not only am I hardcore, I'm crossfit.
