I saw this from Layne Norton's page. I agree with Layne (who said this was the dumbest thing he's ever read) though I want to mention that one crossfitter in the comments said that the quote was taken out of context and had the opposite meaning within the source material.

Hmm, that's interest. Thanks for pointing that out. I assumed that being on Layne's page he would have referenced the quote first. I fell into the same put as he did.

"The goal of CrossFit is to increase work capacity across broad time and age domains through the use of constantly varied, high intensity, functional movements. CrossFit accomplishes this by promoting competency in the ten generally recognized physical skills: cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy."

So, CF's stated goal is "to increase work capacity" (I'd use "endurance")...

There's other vague or misapplied terminology in their comments, such as "intensity," which has an objective "scientific" definition (% of 1RM) but is often generically applied to anything anyone considers "challenging."

Then, many assume CF claims you will "master" all fitness but the term they use is "competency." Everyone driving a car was considered "competent" on their road test. Doesn't mean they are very knowledgeable, safe, skilled, or specialized.

CF's best application is layering other skills (or no skills) on an endurance platform. It does this well, which is why police, military as well as generally non-purposed citizens adopt it.

The best conditioned team wins. Handling endurance stress is critical for police and military operators and feeling good when grocery shopping or playing frisbee doesn't hurt anyone.

It's only when CF declares its supremacy over all other methods or goals that it runs into extremism and loses credibility.

CF says "We get results." Yes, if general fitness or fat loss is the goal. When maximum strength, power or other attributes are needed, then CF is secondary at best. Again, conditioning cannot hurt any other endeavor, but it does not replace or reproduce the results of other, proven methods. The proof of that is that CF has to borrow from other specialized methods to achieve it's goal. They go to other disciplines for "some" power, for "some" strength, etc.

It suits a personalty that doesn't have the drive, focus or need to master any one thing and, since you get leaner and fitter than you were, no one is complaining.
