Tim Ferriss: CrossFit's Good, Bad and Ugly

CrossFit has taken a beating in the general health world as it's popularity has exploded onto the fitness scene in the past couple years.  People either seem to love or hate the Work Out of the Day (WOD) concept and think that the jumping, running, and olympic lifting combination can be too intense or even down right dangerous.

Tim Ferriss is a self proclaimed "body-hacker" and has written some incredible books (Check out The Four Hour Body") to improve your life and has done some great work in the health and performance world.  On his podcast, The Tim Ferriss Show, he has great interviews with top level people in each industry that provides great information.

He interviews Kelly Starrett who owns and operates San Francisco CrossFit (one of first 50 affiliates, now over 2500) and Mobility WOD.  They discuss the benefits and downfalls of CrossFit and where it has been, where it is and where it is going in the future.  This is a great discussion.  Check it out below.
