Watching half the people in my commercial gym doing a million isolations or sitting on the crosstrainer for an hour makes me physically ill and I'd much rather see people doing a crossfit style workout.... the lesser of two evils So as much as they are lying about "elite" training systems, at the end of the day most people that start doing it have no intention of being elite they just want to look better, so at least they arn't a complete waste of space cluttering up a globo gym.
I'll step out and disagree. I would rather see people toil away on the machines and doing 16 sets of curls, but without blowing out a shoulder or throwing up after their workout.

Being underfed and a dipshit doesn't justify working out with intensity. Stupid is as stupid does.
And if you don't think kettleball squat cleans are difficult, I say, step up to the med-ball
