    Reflections from CrossFitters on the themes of body and community

    What are the reflections of a selection of CrossFitters with regard to body ideals, body-image pressure and community? In this study by Arild Boge, Ove Olsen Sæle and Hilde Stokvold Gundersen, semi-structured interviews were conducted with a selection of participants who train at a CrossFit centre in Norway. The conclusion of the study is that the unique training form and architectural design of CrossFit appear to contribute to little body-image pressure and less focus on the ideal body.
