The Pros And Cons Of CrossFit: A Physician’s Perspective

With the media injecting society with lot of perhaps "fad" workout and diet styles, it can be nice to take a step back and analyze one of the fastest growing styles of exercise: CrossFit. This article was written by a medical professional, and he looks at CrossFit in a very scientific and objective way. The pros of CrossFit include: the community and support that one will receive once they join, the support of heatlhy eating within the sport, and finally the intensity of their workouts (styled to HIIT). Some of the cons include: the extremely frequent injuries, the technique that is demanded (and therefore sometimes excused when it shouldn't be), and the glorification of specific body types. Overall, the sports should be approached with caution but there is a healthy lifestyle somewhere in there.
