How do those numbers look? There seems to be a big issue with sweeping injury rates under the table.

I do know that in a local Crossfit based bootcamp business, the idiot has untrained, overweight women running distances (1-2 miles) on concrete and asphalt and that many of the develop, at the minimum, shin splints. One developed stress fractures. In my mind, this is almost a criminal prescription, not to mention a lazy way (for the trainer) to program activity.
