Is Cross Fit a Christian thing?
I was at a neighbors house this morning having coffee with the neighbor (K) and another mom (L) after we walked our kids to school.

L starts talking about her family member who is all into Cross Fit, and how she thought that was weird because he always said he was atheist.

K knows that I am not religious, and I get the idea that she leans more on the woo side of life rather than Christian. But K speaks up and says that she didn't know Cross Fit had a Christian theme to it.

L goes on to explain it's a play on words, and many people don't which is kind of how they hook you in Huh

I have heard it's a " cult like" thing with their members.

Does anyone here do Cross Fit? Is it a Christian based fitness program?

I was big into crossfit for a couple years until my knees let me know I am getting to old for that shit. NO, I have never got a sense of anything related to Christianity in it. That isn't saying that in some ignorant little town's version of a crossfit gym in dumbf##k Georgia that some owner couldn't have merged his/her beliefs and crossfit into some weird culty type thing *vomits at thought*.

I have never heard of any theology tied to it, it is however not recommended by doctors since it is incredibly dangerous and leads to stress injuries.

I think L is confused. There is no Christian theme to CrossFit.

Seeing as the paleo diet is usually what they go for, and seeing that paleo diet says there was a point where humans evolved, no it is not a christian thing.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

CrossFit is a cult, but instead of the usual suspects, their trinity consists of Coach, Uncle Rabdo and Pukey The Clown.
