It can be unfair to judge a program or advice based on the person in charge. Or at least it's not the best argument against a specific program or advice. Glassman can be fat and out of shape, AND his program can be effective.
*I know next to nothing about crossfit, never done it in a gym but probably have done a similar exercise pattern on my own on occasion. I never heard of either of Glassman or Ross before reading this thread.
Most people who 'develop' a system are a bit egocentric, narcissistic, greedy and well, jerks. Look at the hot yoga dude
FWIW, America has a major obesity / health problem. Anything that helps people combat that through exercise and nutrition can't be all bad imho
Some folks groove to Crossfit, some like yoga, some like running, some like weight training, etc. I get happy when I see anyone connect with an activity that will help them improve their health.
