Présentation de l'éditeur

In Inside the Box, veteran journalist and marathoner T.J. Murphy goes all in to expose the gritty, high-intensity sport of CrossFit.

Murphy faced a future with a permanent limp from one too many marathons. Desperate to reclaim his fitness and strength, the 47-year-old signed up for his first CrossFit workout with nothing to lose. Anaerobically blasted by each workout of the day, Murphy discovered a sweat-soaked fitness revolution that's transforming bodies and lives.

CrossFit is the sport of fitness, a radical new approach to exercise that is turning the traditional gym workout upside down. Every day at thousands of CrossFit gyms across America, fitness seekers of all shapes and sizes flex their inner athlete by racing to finish fast-paced workouts. Each workout mixes weight lifting and gymnastics into an explosively effective and addictive new way to lose weight and carve out a new physique.

Inside the Box is Murphy's journey through CrossFit. From staggering newcomer to evangelist, Murphy finds out how it feels, why it's so popular, whether it can fix his broken body.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book 19 septembre 2012
Par Snappy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I've been a long time fan of Crossfit, but also somewhat of a skeptic. On one hand, I love the idea of Crossfit making fitness fun, functional, and involving aspects of sttrongman and olympic lifts. But on the other hand, I've watched Crossfit begin to almost take claim to inventing fitness. I get annoyed every time I open a magazine and see that burpees, sand bag carries, barbell complexes, etc. are "Crossfit workouts" instead of things that have been around for ages. But Murphy's book showed me how I was only seeing part of the story of Crossfit. Crossfit is community, support, diet. And against some criticism, no more a cult than any other club. The book made me wish I could only afford to join!
Anyhow, great book and I could really relate to Murphy, being a banged-up runner myself and looking for a new challenge.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Insider Account of CrossFit 4 septembre 2012
Par Pete Williams - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book reminded me of a cross between Christopher McDougall's Born to Run and L. Jon Wertheim's Blood in the Cage, two excellent accounts of fitness subcultures. T.J. Murphy's Inside the Box belongs in that discussion, with extra points given for weaving a participatory narrative with in-depth business reporting. Murphy took up CrossFit at 47 after a knee all but gave out from a lifetime of endurance sports pounding. Like most endurance sports types, he brought a healthy skepticism into the box only to discover an efficient, ass-kicking workout, along with a sense of community, a means to pull himself out of post-divorce doldrums and, perhaps most surprisingly, a way to avoid knee replacement surgery. If you've ever wanted to attempt CrossFit but been intimidated by this gritty, sinewy world of Spartan gyms and tattooed Millennials, you'll learn that CrossFit gyms are welcoming places for those willing, like Murphy, to explore their physical limits. Murphy is an accomplished endurance sports journalist and athlete and though he thoroughly covers CrossFit's history and philosophies, weaving some compelling personality profiles into the mix, we were left wondering if CrossFit will put him back on the road and the trails. He hints at the end that he's going to apply CrossFit to running. Should make for an interesting epilogue.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic read for the CrossFitter and non-CrossFitter alike 9 septembre 2012
Par Leon C - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book is a must-read for anyone who cares about their physical fitness, which should mean everyone. TJ Murphy gives a well-written, first-person narrative on what CrossFit is and what it's like to be a part of this fitness community. If you're reading this and want to get into "shape", you've probably thought about running or jogging at some point. Murphy is a former marathon runner/triathlete who has seen and done it all, and left his body broken for the experience. He tried CrossFit because he was desperate to find ANYTHING that could keep him going and perhaps bring him back to health.

If you've heard about CrossFit but think it's not for you, you should think again and buy this book. If you've never heard of CrossFit but care about your health, you should buy this book. The book has a chapter on Irene M, who started her CrossFit journey at over 400lbs and currently has lost over 100lb and become the heart and soul of CrossFit Elysium in San Diego. If she can do it, anyone can, period. Don't you at least owe yourself the favor of finding out how she did it?

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book for the "not so sures" out there 14 janvier 2013

This was a quick read and I really appreciated the candid approach by the author. I have been doing crossfit for the past three years and have no desire to return to my old ways of working out. For anyone considering a change in their workout program and may be a bit hesitant or apprehensive in trying crossfit, read this book. It will let you know you are not alone and there is always a support system out there for you. Enjoy!!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A good read for the CrossFitter or someone who wants to learn about it 30 décembre 2012
Par Stephen Collins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Just finished this myself, after buying it for myself at Christmas.

I was familiar with Murphy from his years in the triathlon publishing world (and my past as an enthusiastic, but rarely good, triathlete) so was expecting a strong dose of cynicism towards CrossFit; it's certainly there in the early parts of the book.

Murphy's journey reflects my own; busted from a history of sports that damaged me, a discovery of CrossFit, the enjoyment of the training style and the surprise at encountering the community of support that you don't go in expecting.

It's certainly not going to win a Pulitzer, but it's a pleasant enough, accurate reflection of the world of CrossFit that speaks to a more regular, fitness-focused participant, rather than the superstar athletes we see at the Games.

I enjoyed it.
