Rudy Nielsen of Outlaw Crossfit interviewed by David Tao at Greatest.com
Are the days of CrossFit hobbyists being able to compete on the biggest stages coming to an end?
They already have. All the top people right now are affiliate owners or coaches or have some sort of job that allows them to be in the gym all day, basically. That’s the prototype now, because that’s a guy who can be in the gym all day long and still earn an income. There’s more and more money coming into the sport for sponsorships, and I think that’ll continue. I’d like to see it continue. These guys are working out for sometimes three to four hours a day, every day. They’re on the same schedule Lebron James is on.
