CrossFit Co-Founder Greg Glassman Challenges P90x
It has become common for the media to group together P90x and CrossFit as "extreme" fitness regimens. There is one crucial distinction, however, between CrossFit and the rest of the fitness industry. CrossFit defines and measures fitness in physical terms.
The CrossFit Games provide an opportunity for anyone in the world to demonstrate their fitness. Some have predicted that the total $1 million prize purse will cause athletes from other sports to enter the Games and dominate. CrossFit Founder and CEO, Greg Glassman, though, doubts that the top performers will come from outside the community. He says, "We're testing for fitness in the extreme, and it's long been my contention that you affiliates are developing it on a qualitative and quantitative level that is unlike anything else being done anywhere."
As always, anyone who disagrees will have the opportunity to represent their training program in competition, including P90x.
