The point here is to match an appropriate movement with a purpose.

Crossfit does not build

Maximal power
Maximal strength
Maximal aerobic capacity

Like any other circuit training method, it does build local muscular endurance and anaerobic capacity.

Running hill sprints will build anaerobic capacity as good as, if not better, than Crossfit WODs, and is generally a more orthopedically sound activity.
