When Coach Dan heard a fraternity brother mention this opinion of CrossFit, he had to laugh.
Because ironically, couldn't this exact same criticism be leveled at fraternities?
Yes, you pay a membership fee to join a CrossFit box.
And yes, you will inevitably make friends at said box.
However, one does not beget the other.
Becoming friends with other members while working on making yourself healthier and stronger is just a bonus.
Many friendships do form inside CrossFix boxes because people find themselves surrounded by like-minded folk striving for many of the same goals they are.
