So chalk this up with the FBI phone call to things I didn’t expect to do this year. Back in May, I conducted an interview with a writer who was helping with a piece on CrossFit for Men’s Fitness magazine. It was a weird interview in that A) I was traveling, at an airport with my family and about to board a plane and B) I had no idea what direction the article was going in. As regular readers know, I have some general issues with CrossFit, and one of those is the fact that nearly everyone I know who has done it for any length of time has gotten injured. Most are minor, but I now know six people at my former gym who have had to have surgery for various things that were either caused, or contributed by, CrossFit. So that was the gist of the interview I gave them and what made it in the magazine.
The article in this month’s magazine (Sept. 2014) was focused on various individual’s experiences (maybe 12 total) with CrossFit. Mine was a more contrarian opinion, but overall they captured a typical cross-section of experiences with the program.
So if you’re in the grocery store and want to read AMD’s thoughts, I’m on page 93 of that issue.
