Might as well say the same thing about CFHQ.

Post exactly what is Crossfit, not some generality.

Countless times have I seen: "Oh, the Games competitors still follow Crossfit, they just don't do mainsite." Well, what is Crossfit, then?

Is it "constantly varied, high intensity functional movement"? Well that's what athletes in nearly every single sport do, albeit with a little less variation. Michael Phelps does a functional movement at high intensity, and he doesn't do the same thing every day, so it's constantly varied. Also, Tyson Gay. Also, Behdad Salimi. Also, Roger Federer. So are they doing Crossfit? You'd be delusional to say yes.
Once you claim ownership/membership to something you can't exactly define, you are left with nothing meaningful.

But then again, I could be wrong. Glassman says he has Fran times for all the Indianapolis Colts.
