I bring this to your attention for a couple of reasons. 1) For how big the sport has become, there are still so many that still know very little about what goes on daily in our gyms around the world. 2) Although the sport provides a global platform for over 330,000 people to participate for a very nominal fee, the general population believes that CrossFit is ALL about the profits. 3) CrossFit has been vociferous about the anti-soda campaign. Coach Glassman and the legal teams and trainers all over the world which has thrust CrossFit into the media with a vengeance. The world is now listening!!!

Get educated my friends. CrossFit is leading the way toward a better world. You are a part of it!
