In case you missed it…
CBS's '60 Minutes' had a great interview with every ultra-fit person's favorite workout creator, 'CrossFit's' Greg Glassman.
Click the photo to see the video in full and read below where we've compiled A List of our favorite quotes from the interview...
- On what he's doing: "I'm not trying to grow a business. I'm doing the right things for the right people for the right reasons".
- On what he actually invented: "I invented that doing lateral raises and (bicep) curls while eating pretzels is dumb. That's what I invented". (eat this instead?)
- He had polio as a child, used gymnastics to heal but now walks with a limp due to a bad dismount.
- He likes to say he runs 'CrossFit' more like a biker-gang than a business.
- His company is estimated to be worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
- His company is privately owned… He owns 100% of it.
- He is a college drop-out.
- There is no board of directors.

- You can open your own 'CrossFit' gym if you have the money ($3000 a year annually) and take two classes.
