The beginning of the end.

Comment #4 - Posted by: XFitJay at December 18, 2010 5:16 PM

Well it's been a little over six months since the last mass lamentation and wailing of the CF community over something that turned out to be a pretty good idea (holding the games at the HD center).

If everyone trusts CF enough to follow the programming, and you do, could you please trust CF to be about the right things and not assume they're going to ruin the community automatically?

Or at least just wait until HQ really does do something detrimental before going batshit?

It gets really tiresome to hear you all caterwauling for no reason.

Funny to see Dr. Romanov wearing the RIDICULOUS-NOT-SO-POSE shoes. Zigtechs really?

Comment #6 - Posted by: Matt at December 18, 2010 5:32 PM

OMG the zigtechs are so ridiculous.

They briefly showed a crossfit athlete and shoe designer, i hope the designer was saying: "...so what you are telling me is, you want the complete opposite of our ridiculous new flagship shoe?"

Comment #7 - Posted by: Michael T. at December 18, 2010 5:38 PM

What is the most efficient way to run with a 45# plate?

Comment #8 - Posted by: dan at December 18, 2010 5:42 PM

You guys don't understand! The Zigtechs send a SHOCKWAVE of energy from your heel to your toe propelling you FASTER! Even if that were true, anyone smart isn't landing on their heels. That box looks awesome (they have like 25 rowers!) but Rebook is the anti-crossfit.

Comment #9 - Posted by: Jay at December 18, 2010 5:50 PM

#7, great question - I change positions (hugging the plate to my chest, 1 handed straight arm, behind the head, etc...)throughout the run to minimize the strain of holding it a single position. I believe that is point of this exercise is to force you to use all your body.

Anyone else have thoughts on technique?

Comment #11 - Posted by: Kimberly at December 18, 2010 5:52 PM

I think anybody who had been to the expo at the Orange County fairgrounds wouldn't be so negative about the Reebok thing. Coach Glassman seemed pretty confident that it was a company he could work with without "selling out" or changing Crossfit. I don't know if they released that video yet in the journal. I'm sure it will come out sooner or later. Plus, have a little faith that the powers that be wouldn't allow a big company to F up the Crossfit we all love. Jeez!

Whats up with the Reebok site? Who are the trainers, where is it, when are the classes?

Comment #15 - Posted by: Josh at December 18, 2010 6:21 PM

Having watched the video, I'll be stoked if they can take crossfit more mainstream without diluting it. Especially if it means I don't have to hear any more "authoritative" quotes in the magazines warning women to do light weight so they don't get too big, that triathlon is the answer to fitness, or that weightlifting makes a guy tight and slow. Anything to reduce the firehose of crap that is deluging from the fitness industry. People will be much better off if they learn from crossfit rather than armchair journalists.

Comment #16 - Posted by: Matt S at December 18, 2010 6:25 PM

#11, I and many others are no where near Orange County and this is the first we're seeing or hearing of a relationship between CF and Reebok, which is clearly the underlying message here. It's hard not to be a little weary. After all, this is a company known for making shoes you needed to "pump up" in order to play/perform better. Really? No thanks. I'll keep my INOV-8s.

Comment #19 - Posted by: Kimberly at December 18, 2010 6:51 PM

This might blow your Reebok Pumps to hear it, but Reebok is interested in moving in the direction of CrossFit's style, and not having things the other way around.

Coach Glassman spoke at length about this in Oahu two weeks ago. It was filmed, and he was at the top of his game. I hope it will be on the site sometime soon.

Comment #20 - Posted by: TRN III at December 18, 2010 7:43 PM

Reeeeeaaaally? Reebok? Are you kidding me? They have yet to make a decent shoe, yet CF is hopping in bed with them? Nice... Money talks...

Comment #21 - Posted by: bburgultrarunner at December 18, 2010 7:58 PM

Reebok may be a nice partner for CFHQ - they certainly have the bucks. But Romanov has spent years telling everyone about the importance of low profile shoes for Pose tech running. Him running in these jokes - even if just for demo purposes - is a prime example of what happens when you start to go shake hands with these corporate deals. It reeks. It also makes it a hell of a lot harder for me as a running coach to explain to a recent recruit of Pose running. 'Well is saw Dr.Romanov in them so they must be ok..."

Whatever. Glad to see you guys are making big bucks. I look forward to seeing more Reebok shoes on the Mainsite now.

Comment #22 - Posted by: myles at December 18, 2010 8:15 PM

Not sure how I feel about this.

Looking at the two entities separate from one another, my personal opinion is similar to the consensus here in regards to Reebok: they've had a pretty horrendous track record and even now with their ridiculous current "zig" line. From a business perspective, I really don't think they knew what they were doing, and how they managed to get in good with HQ is still something that baffles me. This is a huge plus for them if they play their cards right.

As far as HQ, with the limited commentary from the first few posts and most likely the likes to follow, as some of you have voiced earlier, I think Coach and the powers that be know what they're doing, whether it's a strategic business endeavor or what have you.

My concern is that I have always felt that CrossFit has always been a community-driven organism ... Reebok a business organism and profit-driven. If any kind of alliance forms, I see potential for all sorts of complications to arise, but again through the years I think HQ has shown their business savviness.

Comment #23 - Posted by: Will Shen at December 18, 2010 8:17 PM

I don't get what the problem/threat is...

Looks to me like Reebok opens a corporate gym for its employees to use and for product development. What is wrong with that? They have developed a working relationship with CrossFit at some level. I imagine they will become a sponsor of the games and some individual competitors (i.e. commericials, endorsements, etc). Sponsorships are nothing new. Some people in this community are so quick to criticize anything that is new or different.

I wish my workplace has a gym like that, instead of its crappy machines and aerobics area.

Comment #24 - Posted by: Ronnieboy at December 18, 2010 8:18 PM

I think I learned this the day I signed up for my level one ($1000 investment). This crossfit thing, it's a business and everyone has something to sell (shoes, equipment, lumbar, certs, etc). It's going to get worse or better, depending on how you view business partnerships. =)

Now I want some free zigtechsssss at my box!!!!!

Comment #25 - Posted by: Ryan Flynn at December 18, 2010 8:21 PM

It's amazing how many of you admittedly know nothing about the new relationship between CrossFit and Reebok but immediately start bashing it... I would say ignorance will ruin this community faster than any corporate relationship ever could.

#21 Jamie- you may be right but does that explain Romanov in the Zigs? Seems kinds counter intuitive hey? I mean the founder of Pose donning shoes - to coach in nonetheless - that are NOTHING like any shoe he has promoted before. Did I miss something or has Reebok changed the way our heels attach to our foot?

Comment #29 - Posted by: myles at December 18, 2010 8:34 PM

I agree with #24 myles.

#21 jamie

This is a huge company with all the resources available to create awesome, smart products. What do they produce? Zigtechs. Watch the commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmlG8Z-S4HE (WFS). It makes me cringe. Pure greed and nonsense. I'm happy Crossfit got the huge endorsement they deserve the money, but won't support anything Reebok until they change their entire product line.

Comment #30 - Posted by: Jay at December 18, 2010 8:50 PM

@Jamie: I think people are just voicing their opinions and you do have to look at Reebok's track record.

With that being said, after watching some of the videos from some of the well known names on the Reebok | CrossFit One site, especially from what Josh Everette said, Reebok will be creating some goods with CFHQ's input. I speculate they may still carry their DMXs, Pumps, and Zigs, but the CF community will most likely have better access to the goods we want.

CrossFit is surely still somewhat of a counter-culture, but I also see the core of CF as being a philanthropy in fitness form. As much as it might be a bad "business model" in the "to-infinity" long-term, I know it sounds cheezy, but imagine if the world knew and benefited from what CrossFit has offered to our community. And this goes back to a pillar in CrossFit philosophy:
"The needs of an Olympic athlete and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. One is looking for functional dominance the other
for functional competence. Competence and dominance manifest through identical physiological mechanisms."

Comment #31 - Posted by: Will Shen at December 18, 2010 8:52 PM

The only thing I use this message board for is for workout time entry, so leaving comments like this is an extreme rarity. Here goes my first comment in regard to the Reebok/CrossFit partnership:

I'm genuinely concerned. It doesn't matter to me that CF main site regulars like Khalipa and Spealler say that Reebok is embracing the culture and is not trying to change CrossFit (see "athlete visits" tab on the Reebok website). Not to engage in hyperbole, but this is not going to end well for affiliates and people like me who click on the main site for our daily workout and then run through it at a regular gym. I'm sure people in-the-know will counter with evidence that HQ has fended off misguided attempts from mainstream fitness before and this is really a good thing for everyone, but to me something just doesn't feel right.

Comment #32 - Posted by: nsb at December 18, 2010 9:15 PM

The more I thought about it, the more I see how this move on HQ's part ties into taking steps toward achieving Coach Glassman's visions -- the definition of fitness, the sport of fitness, the real science of fitness.

Genius!

Comment #33 - Posted by: Will Shen at December 18, 2010 9:26 PM

Quit the bullshit peeps and get on your metcon.
Crossfit has changed all our lives and now it will reach more people. Do your best to support your affiliates and community.
Get your friends and family to your local box and let your coaches lead them to a healthy lifestyle.

If you are a good affiliate with good coaching your box will thrive. Give it time and have faith in your growing community.

Crossfit can be done anywhere at anytime.

Continue to build our community and last but not least help inspire and change peoples lives for the better.

see you peeps at the games (from the bleachers)

Comment #35 - Posted by: Robert McBee at December 18, 2010 9:30 PM

I don't know what the hate is against the CFHQ minting some money with corporate sponsonship.

Dr. Romanov is a protagonist for Pose running. He didn't invent it. If he is whoring himself out for some corporate $, good for him. I expect CF community to have half a brain and separate the CF ideals from those whose objective is to make some money from CF phenomena.

Comment #36 - Posted by: Jack at December 18, 2010 9:45 PM

@Jamie-CFA: The community is ignorant cause information is full divulged.

The videos of CF all-stars on the Reebok affiliate seems to be grasping for legitimacy. Get all the big names on there and that will make it legit.

Before the Reebok box, what other box has been stroked like that in the beginning?

Comment #38 - Posted by: Matt at December 18, 2010 10:09 PM

I'm very excited by the Reebok news. Its obvious from the videos that Crossfit is infiltrating Reebok culture and not the other way around!

I hope more large corporations offer Crossfit gym's as a perk for there employees. Very cool!

Mike

Comment #39 - Posted by: Mike at December 18, 2010 11:04 PM

Reebok is interested in selling shoes and clothing - developed by their marketing departments. Zigtechs? Really?

CrossFit is currently an attractive outlet for their marketing message.

It's business. And the establishment of their in-house affiliate was bound to happen.

But that video with their employees spouting their exaggerated platitudes makes all this feel a bit cheesy. They sell shoes and clothing - and if pilates was the counter-culture rage, they'd have a pilates gym at Reebok tomorrow.

I can't help but be bummed out. I suppose I'll get over it.

as always with crossfit's expansion there are those who resist any coporate sponsorship along the way. i think a lot of people like the fight club idea of crossfit being alternative and underground. we're well past that.

my only concern would be any franchising of crossfit gyms to reebok. the rule has always been one individual gym owner - one gym. the last thing any box owner wants to see is reebok taking over the 20k sqft. former ballys space around the corner to open reebok/crossfit 2 or something.

other than that, the increased prize money and so on sounds great.

I think it's a little rediculous to assume Zigtechs will define the relationship with CrossFit. I would imagine in the future (maybe near future) Reebok will offer a line-up of products that are developed for CrossFit, so when you go to their site you'll have basketball, walking, CrossFit etc menu items. It would be a costly mistake on their part to invest in the community while not offering products the community would buy. Maybe this relationship will improve the access to the products we want and maybe our influence on them can improve their cool factor in the industry since this is such a outstanding community with unbelievable talent. I think this has potential to be a win win. This could be the catalyst to attract more and more athletes to the sport of CrossFit/affiliates. In the end I don't believe Reebok dreams of changing CrossFit but rather tapping into a rapidly growing market. As they roll out new products for us it only makes sense for them to promote CrossFit to expand that market

Surely this reebok this is good? If done right it means every crossfitter gets all the equipment theyve ever wanted designed exactly for that purpose because its been developed by listening to the people at the top of the crossfit ladder, obvisouly theyll come in and clean up the garage gym element to make it more attractive to outsiders but thats just to get more people in, am i wrong??

I agree with you. The relationship between Reebok and CrossFit will be a benefit to some and a detriment to others. The ultimate fear would be to have them in your backyard. We need to have faith in HQ protecting the culture of CrossFit and all that it stands for and not changing the rules for affiliates.

Frankly, I don't see what they see at this stage, maybe it is all about the money, or, maybe Glassman is really onto something much bigger.

If we see Heather Bergeron wearing a pair of Reebok Easytone workout pants, then we have the right to panic! By then the culture that founded CrossFit will be gone.

More communication from HQ would be great, like anything in life, "when people don't know what's going on, they draw their own conclusions".

Comment #82 - Posted by: Mike Farrell 58 5'10" 210 at December 19, 2010 11:27 AM

Sunday musings...

1) Caterwauling. Oh, I like that word very much, thank you.

2) Vacation mode. The present state of my brain. Apparently this is an "auto-start" thing for my particular brain as I will not be on vacation until sometime in mid-February.

3) Homework. "The Heir's" dog, Abbie, ate my surgical charts the other night. We came home from dinner to find my charts strewn over the kitchen floor in various states of chewed.

That's right...my dog ate my homework.

4) True science is to technical proficiency as music is to playing an instrument.

5) Compliance. There is a long-standing conversation in medicine about the challenges faced by patient non-compliance. Recently a newer word, indeed a newer concept has been added to the conversation: adherence. I think this is actually a better word for the problem in the world of my day job, and I think these two words apply to our Crossfit world, too.

Adherence implies the simple following of a program, following instructions. It's a measure in part of how simple or easy it might be to go along with what has been prescribed. People who ADHERE to the prescription do so without much understanding of what is asked, and certainly do so without much in the way of buy-in. This probably represents the majority of the interactions between prescriber and prescribee. Understanding this is to accept as the prescriber the necessity of consciously looking for and then removing as many barriers that might reduce adherence (for instance, a one time/day medicine chosen over a four time/day one).

COMPLIANCE, on the other hand, strongly implies a significant measure of buy-in on the part of the prescribed to. This is actually one of the reasons I am pleased that "compliance" is being replaced with "adherence" in my day job, because it's just really difficult to effect this buy-in. But here, in Crossfit, it's all about compliance. You simply MUST understand the prescription in order to receive the benefit. You simply MUST buy-in to the prescription in order to receive the benefit. In the Crossfit gym there is a shared responsibility to achieve compliance, shared by both coach and athlete.

Here, in the cyber-gym, or in your garage gym, it is left to YOU, and you alone, to determine if you are adherent or truly compliant.

6) NNN. Well, I suppose I can't avoid this one. So let me channel the great Ronald Reagan and offer this to the Nattering Nabobs of Negativity above: you are suffering from premature speculation.

The owners and decision makers of Crossfit, Inc. have accepted an offer from Reebok to provide support for Crossfit, the movement and Crossfit, the business. Did you listen to Coach's remarks? There is no investment involved; Crossfit is still 100% privately owned. There was pretty much nothing promised FROM Crossfit in return for giving Reebok the ability to market to and on behalf of Crossfitters. Indeed, it has been said that when Coach was asked in a Q&A at Reebok HQ what he and Crossfit were now going to do to support Reebok he said: "I'm wearing a Reebok shirt today." Period. Pretty ominous, huh? Not.

Think of some of the other previously underground things many of us like around here, like UFC for instance. Or triathalons after the mega-growth of the Ironman brand. Are they worse now that they are bigger, now that there is commercialization and a bunch of money? Not really. I see more visibility in more places which should result in more clients for CF affiliates. Should result in more access for CF trainers to places like schools and youth athletic teams.

If you look under the hood just a bit you will see that the engine is really the same one that was there before Reebok. The rules for affiliate ownership are no different (thanks to Ken C. for bringing up this important concern), one trainer-one gym. A free website jam-packed with not only the alpha version of CF but everything you might need to do Crossfit solo, for free.

Why so negative? Why impugn mal-intent to every growth step? Every change? Every business decision? It's been a great ride. Why shouldn't we assume that what's around the next (Reebok) corner won't be just as much fun as the ride we've already taken?

In the end some of the folks above are correct in that Reebok is about selling a physical product, and maybe we'll get some of what we need or want from them. Might turn out to be a pretty good business decision for them. But Crossfit is about DOING some version of Crossfit, and about BEING a part of the Crossfit community. No change there as far as I can see.

So Reebok, welcome aboard. Fasten your seatbelt.

I'll see you next week...

I just wanted to comment on many of these posts today that I've been reading. I work @ Reebok in product development and have been doing CF for the last 2 months now @ Reebok. I want to tell you a couple of things...1) This is the best workout that I've ever done. I've been an athlete for 20 years and this is now my primary workout. I feel like I can speak for all the people at Reebok who have had our eyes opened to CF and say we have been so blessed to have this gym opened and are learning more and more everyday. 2) Being in product development, this is the best way to research and create the right products for CF. I love my zigs, but for CF I wear my indoor soccer shoes b/c they are low profile and until Reebok can develop the right shoe for CF, I'll wear my indoors. Being in product dev. I can tell you that I am currently working on Spring 12 product so whatever Reebok is creating for CF it may take a little bit to come to market due to development timelines. I am not high up in corporate so I can not speak for the company, but I can tell you that I didn't know about CF before Reebok and CF partnered, but for me it has been a life changer. I am becoming stronger, faster, and fitter each day I train. I love CF and do not want it to become the next "Bally's" or "LA Fitness" either. Our gym is not open to the public, but we do internally promote our local CF's and affiliates (Hingham, Rockland, Cohasset, Fenway, South Boston, etc) to all of our friends and family members. I pray all of you guys & girls out there understand that all of us who are at Reebok CF feel like we are part of this CF family and do not want anything to ruin CF esp. since we have just had our eyes opened to it. I can only give you my perspective as a newbie to CF. I respect all of you and your opinions, just wanted to put a semi-insiders voice out there for ya.

The only issue I have is that they chose Reebox rather than one of the companies that produce quality products. Reebok running shoes are some of the worst in the industry - Pearl Izumi running shoes are better. Let's hope this is the beginning of Reebok putting effort into quality instead of just being a cheaper option than Nike. High quality gear please.

50 ring pull-ups (I don't have a pull up bar)

27:52. I substituted 50 burpees for the double unders, and had to step down each rep on the box jumps instead of jumping down because of a broken toe. Felt pretty bad today, and knew this one wasn't going to go well for me, but I ground through it. Hand-stand push-ups and deadlifts were unbroken, and box jumps as unbroken as I could with stepping down. After that it as all pretty broken. My 400 meters was a walk, again because of the toe. Oh well, first day back after two weeks of not moving very much due to travel for work.

That's "nutts" indeed! Was going fine till I hit the double unders, every other jump is a single under for me since I can't string them together, that makes for a helluva lotta jumping!

25 Box jumps, 30 inch box
50 Pull-ups
100 Wallball shots, 20 pounds, 10'

HSPU's unbroken
deadlift reset each rep(open hands at the bottom regrip and go) unbroken in that form.
box jumps singles rejump 30in rtepeats are tough for a shorty like me.
pullups 15,10,10,5,10
Wall ball sets of 10. sucked ALL BROKE UP, that and DU were all my time. everything else done almost unbroken.
DU's mostly sets of 10 at least 2 sets colse to 20, My shoulders would fatigue so i kept to 10's and just got it done.

Run with 45lbs bar. Slow and steady.

Time 35:05 first time doing Nutts.

Happy with it. Breaks were long but I haven't done a big metcon like this in over a month and the same goes for wallball.

"Nutts" was my second WOD today. First WOD (took 6:34):
20 DB Thrusters (40# DBs)
200m run
15 DB T's
200m run
10 DB T's
200m run
5 DB T's

Did "Nutts" with a friend who finished in friggin' 17:34 (also his second WOD, 10 minutes after finishing the one above). Nutts took me 22:23.

Good luck Reebok. I look at it like this:

If a band is a good band, I don't stop listening to their music because they signed with a major label. But I will stop listening to their music if their music starts to suck.

subbed 45lb thruster for wall-balls and 100 single unders and 100 tuck jumps for double-unders...

last time subbed 45lb thrusters for wall-balls and 800 single-unders for double unders...planned on same sub this time but legs were dead and the rope was getting caught after 4 or 5 revolutions. would've take too long to get to 800 at that pace.

33:33.....3:36 slower than last time...huge cheese steak for lunch, I think it slowed me down.

very disappointed overall.

I'm looking at getting a weighted vest next... that'll give more overall strength which should help in quite a few of these other areas. Maybe I'll get my time down too!

Comment #174 - Posted by: AKINCAID at December 20, 2010 3:21 PM

You know...
Crossfit started as an obscure training program for MMA fighters.
Then the first responders and Special Forces got on board.
Then the entire planet got the vibe.
Then pose running and Vibram Five Fingers were all the rage.
Then everyone had to get certified to be cool.
Then everyone had to have a special jump rope, kettlebell, and C2 rower.
Then there was a Crossfit facility in every big city (and many smaller towns).

If Crossfit wants to team up with Reebok, let 'em.
The community and workouts have been constantly changing throughout the years - and it is still the best thing going.

WOD #15, finally after a busy holiday weekend with nothing but a 4 1/2 mile run Saturday. Got "Nutts" done the following way:

10 HSPU - modified/unbroken
250 lb DL - unbroken (woo hoo for still having brute strength!)
25 box jumps, 30 inch box (scary for a moment, but done segmented)
50 pullups - 85 lb assisted/segmented
125 wall ball shots, 16.1 lb ball (same weight moved).
200 double unders - segmented, but best rhythm I've had with these so far. Thought it was my rope, guess it was me (go figure huh?).
400 meter run, 45 lb plate.

Time - Don't know, knocked my cell off the table and the ^#*$&!@ stopwatch conked out. Think it was somewhere between 40 and 45 minutes.

Personally, I see merging with any multi-national company to be detrimental. What does Paleo require? non-commercial grass-fed beef. What does everyone love about CF? The fact that it's community driven and free- not profit driven. What to Crossfitters routinely (and justly) complain about? Commercial gyms like Globo-gym. People say trust the coaches' abilities to not allow CF to sell out. Then why associate with a company like Reebok in the first place? What's the benefit? How can their influences not be bad? How could Crossfit's influence affect all the things CFers hate about mainstream fitness? The instant that profit overtakes community as the driving force behind Crossfit is the second it's integrity is compromised. CF is the anti-Reebok, why bastardize it?

Last was over 30. HSPU, Deads, and jumps unbroken. Pullups got me which is strange, they almost never affect me. Wallballs were okay, could have pushed it there. DU's were smooth but forearms got really tired so they were broken into multiple sets. Last time was over 30, next time sub 20.

By far the worst was the DU set, but my previous lifetime total was 1. Now 81. Wallballs (new as well) weren't consistent but the pullups were showing marked improvement. With the DU technique figured out, I know next time will be heaps faster with more work done.

Hi All,

I have not commented here in some time, but I just wanted to say that I think the alliance between CF and Reebok is awesome.

I have been on board nearly since the beginning and have seen the stunning growth of our community. When I started there were no affiliates in NYC or SF. We worked out in parks, using info from CF main.

CrossFit has grown, evolved and continues to bring better fitness methods to the masses. It is only logical that big concerns must be infected with the virus to take it to the next level. One day the AMA will recommend 3-5 hours of CF per week for health, no doubt.

OK so it is not our super-secret club anymore, but most of you whining were not around when it really was anyway.

Nice work Coach.

DU little better. Tech was terrible. Sure there was big heel kick. Able to keep plate on back better. Only stopped once. Get a little on BJ. WB too broken. A lot of 11-12 rounds.

Did this at home: 47:50
10 HSPUs w/3 plates + abmat for reduced ROM
15 DLs @ 250# - slowed by loading bar after HSPUs
25 Box jumps on 24" bench
50 Ring pull-ups - assisted
100 Wall ball shots @ 10' target w/20# Dball
200 Double Unders alternating single w/DU rep b/c I suck at DUs, but I got through it
400m run w/45# plate (slowed by unloading bar) - it's about 40m to my shed so I did 5 round trips; my neighbors probably think I'm nuts...

Did this a couple of days ago. Scaled/subbed as follows:

225lbs deadlift
45lbs thruster instead of wall ball shots; no medicine ball.
Only did 100 double-unders. My skip rope broke this week, and I only had an old one that is too short, and kept getting caught. Figured it was better to do fewer than to waste a lot of time.
