The workouts that a gym does says a lot about their priorities and training methodology.
Take a look at the workouts that are posted by other CrossFit gyms. Check out the techniques, loads and the rep schemes. Look carefully and see if you can determine what the purpose is behind the workout. Is the goal to crush the athlete or to make them stronger? Is the goal to make them collapse on the floor afterwards or to make them ready to come back the next day and do more work?
