Naked CrossFit is a thing now

Yeah, we’re talking about CrossFit some more. I know, everyone who does CrossFit already talks about CrossFit nonstop, but bear with me here. Because this time, it involves full-on nudity. It almost makes up for the inherent boredom of talking about CrossFit again! Almost.

Okay, not really.

To the point, The Gaily Grind has discovered a Denmark-based CrossFit team by the name of Spartan Mentality, which practises fully naked and potentially dangerous workout routines. So if you ever wanted to do so many naked situps that you end up puking in front of a room full of equally naked men, now you can! I don’t know why you’d want that, but you can!

But seriously, why would they do that? Well, as the group’s creator, Steffen Haldrup Andersen, put it, “[P]eople are already so scantily clad at CrossFit that we thought we might as well throw the rest away.” So basically, they’re just jumping to the logical endpoint on this one.

So yes, CrossFit may push people beyond their rational, medical and physiological limitations at the risk of their health. Yes, they for some reason won’t let trans women compete in their competitions, but at least they’ll let you air out your junk. They had to have something going for them, right?
