I like the idea of always working with a coach and I love the intense workouts and variety. The initial deal I bought only comes with about a 2 month commitment. I think that's enough to see if I like it. If not, I'll go back to my old routines at my other gym.
I'm not NOT a fan of it. I dislike some aspects of it, like the superiority complex SOME CF'ers get. They certainly don't all have it. It would never work for me because there is a complete lack of specificity in training, which leads to being mediocre at all things instead of great at a couple of things. With the amount of soccer I play, it would never work. But for most people who don't have that kind of activity to train for, it probably works just fine. If I just worked out on my own with no real goals in mind, I imagine I'd enjoy it quite a bit.
