If you haven’t heard off CrossFit by now, you’ve probably been living under a rock in the middle of nowhere. It’s one of the latest and greatest fads in fitness, one that some would even go as far as calling it a bit cultish.

A few of the other activities were not as successful as the opening act, such as Duke trying to bench press the gals. But, who knows? With a little practice and some more Crossfit, anything is possible. Or is it?
