Great article summarizing CrossFit:
John Velandra runs “Designs in Fitness” aka CrossFit Cape Fear.
From the Article:
“Despite its merits, Velandra said he doesnâ€™t think CrossFit will achieve the same popularity that programs such as Spinning, Pilates and Tae Bo have realized. He doesnâ€™t think enough people will be willing to train like athletes, certainly not for the long run. But he thinks serious athletes, police officers and soldiers will continue to seek out CrossFit-style workouts.”
