Russell Greene (pictured during the 2007 CrossFit Games) is a CrossFitter who stumbled upon What is Fitness in 2002 when he was 16. He became addicted and did what he could from the workouts posted and the small, grainy videos available then.
This is the third of a series (The Best of CrossFit.com) in which dedicated and/or long term CrossFitters highlight their favorite or most influential archives from the vault. Russell gets philosophical about the nature of CrossFit, and the changes it has had on his life and mind. This is a well-rounded article as he has been inspired by the athletes, coaches, theories, ethics, politics, and ultimately, the empirical results found in CrossFit.
