While a lot of people that join the crossfit community are lead in the wrong direction by mismanaged gym's and trainers that aren't reputable, you will have this in every community. I know crossfit, like powerlifting or bodybuilding isn't for everyone, but it has its place. I believe in trying something before judging it ... plus most people don't see that CrossFit, when done right, leads to stuff like this:
