It is easy to take our immaculate and well appointed facility for granted or come to the perception that such trappings are required to “do CrossFit”. This pandemic however is going to serve as a return to the old school for our gyms, and good news: CrossFit is the original and still reigning champions of rugged, grungy fitness.
The actual product that is CrossFit consists of just two things: The Methodology, and the coaching that brings you that methodology… That’s it. Kick ass stimulus, and a kick ass coach are the only two things you need. A great illustration is this gem of a video featuring Kelley Starrett giving us a tour of San Francisco CrossFit, one of the very first affiliates and run out of a shipping container out back of a military complex: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hk2_wb-9nq8
Remember this as we come back to training, no item of equipment or climate controlled room makes you fit.
