I hope this is what happens. I like to think that their hearts are in the right place at least.
With big corporations coming in, I wonder if maybe it will get watered down, to appeal to the masses (I think GFK alluded to this). I'm hoping instead that it gets fixed.
You have to consider too that different CF gyms do things differently. There are some CF trainers that actually know what their doing (e.g. Rippetoe), and many others that don't. Maybe it isn't CF that's the problem, maybe they just need smarter trainers who understand basic exercise principles like SAID, GAS, etc.
I agree that all CF trainers/coaches should have a standardized cert that is recognized by the wider fitness community. That would solve a lot it seems....
