the Scientology of fitness. Sometimes known as "Cultfit."
Like most cults:
-Their subjects are put into physically and/or emotionally distressing situations, breaking their will over time.
-Their problems are oversimplified and repeatedly emphasized.
-They are unconditionally "loved," accepted, and receive "guidance" from a charismatic "leader."
-Their identity is now based on the group.
-They are, in a subtle way, encouraged to break off ties from friends and/or family who do not participate in this newfound CULTure.
-Access to external information is severely monitored and/or controlled.
A: "Wasn't Eric supposed to go out with us today?"
B: "No, he mentioned something about Crossfit and a WOD."
A: "What about the concert on Friday?"
B: "Nope. He's watching some sort of Crossfit competition on the East side."
A: "Well, what about your wedding next month? Isn't he a groomsman?"
B: "He had to cancel so he could try out for the Crossfit Games."
A: "Wow, Eric has turned into a cunt."
B: "He says he only does it for the exercise and doesn't really like the people at his gym, but I'm starting to believe he has fallen to dark side. Sometimes I think he cannot be saved from this superficial idiocy."
