     Hello everyone. Another day another dollar an hour... not from the blog of course. Anyway, I want to bring something to everyone's attention, and I'd really like to hear what you have to say about it, so don't be shy.

     So, you or may not have heard... but Reebok is now an official sponsor of CrossFit. Graham Holmberg, who was the male winner for the 2010 CrossFit Games, has been named as a spokesman for the company.

Your Fittest Man on Earth

     What does this mean for CrossFit? Checking message boards and comments, there seems to be 2 schools of thought for the recent happenings: 1) CrossFit is evolving as a legitimate sport, and becoming more accepted 2) Coach Greg Glassman (CrossFit founder) is selling out the CrossFit name.

     In my opinion (whether is matters or not) is that this is a great step forward for CrossFit. At the 2010 CrossFit Games, which I was fortunate enough to attend, there was a literal sea of vendors out there. UnderArmour had a huge truck out there, Progenex was offering free samples of protein shakes, and even the TRX system had a booth set up. Did I hear, "what the hell are these posers doing out here?" Not at all! All I saw was complete acceptance by the community at large.

     I think this will only enhance the message the CrossFit is trying to spread. Lift heavy weights, eat good food, and always strive to be better. Using CrossFit, thousands of men and women from around the world have done things they've not thought possible. Why do we have to keep this to ourselves, it needs to be shared with the world!

     As I said, this is just my opinion. But I REALLY want to hear from the CrossFitter out there. Is this one great step forward for CrossFit? Or one giant failure by some ass-hat? Speak up everyone.

*Author's Note: Coach Glassman, I am in no way calling you an ass-hat*

3,2,1 GO!
