Anyone here try "CrossFit"?

Just curious to hear about your experience, especially in light of back-country activities. I workout regularily, but in a somewhat rag-tag fashion. CrossFit (search on Wed) makes big claims, but is also bewildering? Help or hype?

I found it to be helpful for the fact that it was so different from my routine of many years, and it seems to ignite a metabolism change. The problem is, at my age I get a bit burned out doing it week after week. Now I mix it up, I do reg weight sets with traditional cardio, stepper etc one week, and a modified cross fit workout the next week.

That makes a lot of sense. I'll ease into it and see how it goes.
