CrossFit McDonalds (not lovin’ it)
Hardly a day goes by that I don’t see or hear some
“fitness goo-roo” ranting about how much they hate
First, it’s always easier to dish out hate when you’re
not confident in your own skills, passion, talents and
Of course these fitness know-it-all’s will defend
themselves by saying, “Crossfit is dangerous and
it’s my job to tell people – blah, blah, blah.”
Haters always mask their hatefulness as something
benevolent. They think their “saving” you by pointing
out the sinful.
Hate is hate, no matter how you slice it.
I say mind your fucking business, be creative, explore
and share your experiences with others.
It’s the same with companies like McDonald’s.
People hate on McDonald’s because they say their
food is bad.
But what The Righteous often forget is that McDonald’s
is providing a great value to their customers.
Everyone knows that McDonald’s food is of poor quality.
People don’t go to McDonald’s because they’re trying to
lose weight or get healthy.
They go to McDonald’s because McDonald’s offers them
fast food at a cheap price.
The value is in SPEED and PRICE. Not the food quality.
So if McDonald’s stays in business, it’s because they are
obviously offering great value to their customers.
No need to hate McDonald’s or their customers.
If you don’t like it, don’t eat it. Drop the hate.
Crossfit is exploding all over the world…
…just like McDonald’s did.
They’re exploding in popularity because they offer the
perfect value for what their customers want.
Crossfit promises to make you sweat your balls off
and throw up after workouts.
Heck, they even BRAG about getting injuries.
And people love it!
Crossfit never promises “a better balanced and
physiologically sound exercise program that follows
principles of progressive overload, etc”
And apparently their customers don’t give a shit about
that stuff anyway.
If you’re like me, then you DO care about geeky fitness
parameters and designing sound programs.
That’s our business. And if our customers want that
stuff they’ll ignore Crossfit and follow us.
But, there is no reason to hate Crossfit.
Unless…. you feel threatened by them.
And I’m sure THAT is what all the hate is about.
Crossfit is like McDonald’s and you’re feeling like
Get over it, and grow up!
By pointing out how evil Crossfit is you are shining
a big bright light on how inept, incapable and impotent
you are to compete with them.
Like I’ve said… leave Crossfit alone and work on building
you’re own unique brand and value by doing something
Burger King will always play second fiddle to McDonald’s
because it’s the same shit in a different package… and
Micky D’s does it better.
But neither of them can hold a candle to Ruth’s Chris
Steakhouse or Cheesecake Factory.
Instead of hating others… get better at what YOU do.
