Future of Exercise or Cult? Open & DIY Exercise

Most exercise routines default to Globo-Gym, treating its customers like hamsters all while increasing boredom and lowing your bank account. There is hope: Crossift (http://www.crossfit.com/), a do-it-yourself program )or you can join a "box") that really focuses on developing real fitness through a pseudo-random set of exercises. AND the best thing is it can be completed in 30 minutes a day 5 times a week at zero to no cost. 12 months ago I was going through the same infinite do-loop exercise routine: upper body, lower body, run, rinse, repeat. Bored out of my skull, with little to nothing to show for it. No more, I was recently introduced to Crossfit, which shares a number of the same characteristics of OSS: atomic units of source exercises, open participation, recombination of source exercises, competitions, DIY.
