CrossFit Chicago

Just curious if anyone else read that article in Chicago Tribune last Thursday (5/31) in the At Play section, last page.. Article was titled, "Get buff like a Spartan" I guess the actors in 300 all used a fitness routine called CrossFit that uses the basic equipment and whole-body exercises: dumbbells, barbells, medicine balls, a kettleball, and a chin-up bar to get in shape... there are supposed to be a few trainers in the Chicago area...

Just curious if anyone else has ever used this system or heard of anyone using it...? I'm sure it's hard as hell (they mention a popular CrossFit mantra is, "I met pukey."), but if I end up looking like King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) might be worth the price of admission!

I stumbled upon CrossFit when I was looking into buying an Olympic Weightlifting bar, apparently they sell CrossFit bars that you can snatch/clean with that function much like the Olympic bars just not as high quality..

Always wondered what CrossFit was after seeing that product, never found a definite answer..

NESBA - Seems to be missing, can someone direct me where to find it?

Only Bikers understand why dogs love to stick their heads out car windows.
