CrossFit - Greg Glassman

Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports. - Greg Glassman

CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity.

No Bull

No Bull has been an advertising powerhouse.  I have gotten sucked into their ads on Facebook as well as Morning Chalk Up.  My training shoes are in great shape.  I usually wear a pair of Nike Metcon 4.  I keep a pair of Saucony for run heavy workouts.  I also have a pair of Adidas lifters, that I can grab if I have advanced notice of heavy Olympic lifting or overhead squats.

That being said I am enamored with two of their offerings:

Lifter 

Woodstock Camo Trainers

The Lifters are handmade and I think well worth the $299 retail price, although I would be hard pressed to spend that kind of money on a pair of shoes.  The only time I have come close to that mark was for a pair of Sidi Road Cycling shoes.

The Woodstock Camo Trainers are s pretty cool design, feature a gum sole and super fabric upper.  $159 is pretty steep for a pair of shoes, but I want to say the Metcons were on the order of $120 so not too far past the mark.

I might be adding one or both of these to my Christmas wish list.  I do like trying different brands and have enjoyed trainers from Reebok, Nike and Inov-8.  A small part of my motivation is to try products from other manufacturers.
