JJ - Thanks for another great CF radio show! I'm fairly new to CF and have been listening to old shows and learning a lot about the CF world. You do a great job conveying the spirit of CF.

Mr. Cej's comments were very insightful regarding the nature of the decision-making process of the CF leaders. Isn't the primacy of fitness over marketing and money what makes CF successful and appealing to most crossfitters? No doubt the foundation of fitness that CF creates would suffer if the only workouts were those that used 'official CF equipment' or if the nutrition program was based upon a sponsors products rather than a core belief in its efficacy. In an age where money steers decisions, CF is directed by a stubborn belief that the most efficacious training strategy will rise to the top. As Mr. Cej states, this makes CF organic, constantly evolving towards a better program for fitness, not one that makes more money or wins more awards with mainstream pundits. From what I have seen, this fiercely independent mindset is in each crossfitter, helping to ensure that CF continues to make the fittest athletes for generations to come.
