Welcome to the Cult

How can you tell if a group is a cult? Many experts study cults and have found cult members usually don’t even realize they’re in a cult. Are you in a cult?. I asked Google the same question and the results were hilarious. Use the following lists to help you decide whether our CrossFit Community is a cult or not.
-The group is focused on a living leader to whom members seem to display excessively zealous, unquestioning commitment.
-The group is preoccupied with bringing in new members.
-Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished.
-Mind-numbing techniques

-The group is elitist, claiming a special, exalted status for itself, its leader(s), and members

-The group has a polarized us-versus-them mentality, which causes conflict with the wider society.

-The group’s leader is not accountable to any authorities.

-The leadership induces guilt feelings in members in order to control them

-Members’ subservience to the group causes them to cut ties with family and friends, and to give up personal goals and activities that were of interest before joining the group.

-Members are expected to devote inordinate amounts of time to the group.

-Members are encouraged or required to live and/or socialize only with other group members.

So are we as CrossFitters part of a Cult?
