Coach Glassman presented CrossFit to the American Society of Exercise Physiologists (ASEP). In preparation for that event, Lon Kilgore, PhD wrote:
On April 3rd, 2009 CrossFit will be introduced to the academic exercise physiology community at the American Society of Exercise Physiologists national conference to be held on the campus of Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas.
The intellectual foundations and practical applications of CrossFit will be presented to an audience of exercise physiologists from around the world. Coach Greg Glassman, CAPT Brian Chontosh, USMC, and Mark Rippetoe will each present talks. A one hour round table question and answer forum with the speakers will follow.
This is an important event as it may be the first time an academic group has thought outside the box and invited successful exercise practitioners to contribute to forwarding the understanding of exercise science. CrossFit is sharing the spotlight with traditional scientific and theoretical presentations, and a talk by Nobel Laureate Kary Mullis. Dr. Mullis’s presentation is entitled “What if everything you knew about science was wrong?” and will be as challenging to conventional thinking as the CrossFit session.
