What does everybody think of the Reebok's push into Crossfit?

Check out more at reebok.com/fitness

Here are some interesting facts about Reebok's foray into Crossfit (borrowed from Fitbomb):
  • In April, Reebok's opening "a combined gym and store location on Fifth Avenue in New York."
  • Reebok plans to "outfit shipping containers as mobile CrossFit gyms and deliver them to 50 locations around the world, as a means of encouraging people to try CrossFit."
  • "The Sport of Fitness Has Arrived" campaign will be Reebok's main marketing push for 2012, [Reebok marketing VP Viktoria] Wallner said. It will also highlight other Reebok products, such as RealFlex, ZigTech and EasyTone." (EasyTone? As part of "The Sport of Fitness Has Arrived" campaign? Really?)
I gotta be honest...how much of this is them trying to spread the sport, and how much is good marketing to get a foothold in on the sport? Ask yourself that, next time, before you drop the $60 on the WOD shorts.
