"Typically, if someone says something to me about CrossFit, it's that it's dumb or not a good way to work out," says Coach Cody.
First of all, to call something "dumb" while having zero experience in it or knowledge of it is, well, dumb.
CrossFit is by no means easy.
Yes, as mentioned above, we can (and do) scale movements to suit the needs of our athletes, but ask anyone who's actually a CrossFit athlete if they think it's "easy" and you will most likely be met with a laugh.
The people who hate on it are usually " scared to try it because they know it'll be hard and/or they may get embarrassed by trying it," says Cody.
The old adage "Don't knock it before you try it," works really well here.
