i'm with bobby light on this one... in response to the military badass comment one of my coaches was one of the guys that helped create the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program and we do plyometrics, circuit training, anaerobic and aerobic exercise, HIIT with tabata protocol and traditional weight lifting with explosive power in mind not slow weight lifting, and kettle bells. Crossfit will never create top level athletes alone simply because there is too little cardio. No doubt it gets you in shape and will help most athletes, but without other programs it as useless as doing pure cardio. Fitness in my opinion isn't just strength or power, but how long you can do it without breaking down. That said flexibility and breathing is just as important but many athletes neglect this aspect.
