Moment of Awesomeness? This post is more like… Moment of Panic!!

The Super Bowl was yesterday, so that meant the year’s biggest commercials being broadcast for the world to see.

Well, with what should have been an opportunity to relax, laugh and forget about life’s problems for a few hours, one commercial in particular left me incredibly uneasy. Is Kim Kardashian trying to single-handedly ruin the fitness industry?! I mean, could this commercial lead to millions of people around the world saying goodbye to CrossFit Gyms and hello to Skechers for their obviously truthful advertising? Why would I want to CrossFit for a few hours per week to get in the best shape of my life, when all I need to do is wear amazing shoes?

What do you guys think? Are we… is CrossFit in trouble forever?!?! Post your thoughts to the comments section.

    I dunno man, I feel pretty mean after I got those free runs. They do it all for me I don’t even have to try..

    And we all know she isn’t that way as a result of footwear

  2. But Clayton… she said bye to her trainer… Doesn’t that mean it’s all in the shoes? 🙂

    Ouch! It would be great to see some actual scientific reasons these things aren’t good for you… I’ve read that they can actually TAKE AWAY from an otherwise effective workout. Could you post some studies on this?
