ABC News Asks “Is CrossFit Dangerous?”

ABC News ran a segment that aired yesterday, which discussed the issue of rhabdomyolysis, or what many know colloquially as “rhabdo.” The piece has been getting quite a bit of attention on social media over the last 24-hours. 

It’s a curious report, as anyone that has been involved in CrossFit or the methodology, knows first hand they have been one of industry leaders in education and awareness on the matter for several years now.

In fact, anyone sitting their CrossFit Level One will not only be given a specific lecture on the topic and have readings on the issue, but they will also have examinable questions on the matter.

So it is rather strange to see “critics” point the figure at CrossFit, when they are one of the few in the fitness industry providing their trainers with preventative steps and eduction.   

You can check that video out below, but we would like to hear your thoughts. Tell us what you think in the comments section below.
