i wanted to learn to lift, and i liked the support, encouragement, and comraderie of the CF group at my gym. initially i also liked the idea of the cross-functional WODs, which seemed like a good way to superset and get a lot out of a short time, but the timed nature and high numbers of repetitive movements makes it really difficult to focus enough on form and avoid injury. after only about a year, i ended up making a shoulder tendon very angry, and it eventually tore and required rotator cuff surgery. and this was with an instructor who is actually quite knowledgeable and makes a concerted effort to help folks with their form and modify exercises as required. what i'd really like to find is a CF-like group that focused more on lifting, didn't have timed WODs, and eliminated super-high reps!
