CrossFit is like gardening.

Despite hardcore shirts that claim otherwise, CrossFit is nothing like war. It’s not an extreme cult of badass super-people. Doing CrossFit is not like military training, or martial arts. CrossFit is like gardening. A gardener cultivates his or her plants. He waters and fertilizes them. She puts them in the right kind of soil and…
