    In its defense, it is free, and it does look like it uses similar equipment but I can't help but think it's probably just CrossFit lite or some watered-down version that takes only the flashiest bits. I would be surprised if they took the fundamentals and actually incorporated it into their program. I guess it's possible that any members who like the class could then look into what CrossFit is all about which at the very least serves to help broaden horizons.

    1.) I'm just glad they still do bicep curls, otherwise, no go.
    2.) I love how hard that guy is trying to make the tire flip look difficult.

    I hate to admit I know this, but that guy at the very beginning looked a lot like the Situation from Jersey Shore. I'd imagine if they were for some reason using him as a "celebrity" sponsor, though, they'd play it up a bit more.
