There are tons of "fitness" places, programs and gimmicks out there. And to a certain extent, if you're deconditioned, then that's better than nothing. But once you get going, you need some direction. 

Ask yourself. Is what I'm doing getting me better at everything? Is the DVD I'm following truly getting me adapted to whatever should come my way? Is the gym or trainer that I'm going to really interested in me getting fitter or just keeping me in their paying ranks? Is my coach or trainer or guru just a charismatic person that gets me excited about whatever it is they're doing, no matter how stupid I feel or look? Check the self-assessment. Are you really better at things outside the gym? Or are you just getting better at the same old things you do over and over? Just because you like something doesn't mean it's getting you to your goal. 

If you are unsure, test yourself. Go outside. Do something you haven't done in a while. See if you're any better. If you're a cyclist, run, jump and squat. If you're a runner, sprint all out, squat, lift things and put them down. If you're a calisthenics or pull-up bar person, pick up ever increasing amounts of weights and squat. If you can't do any of those basic things, then maybe you should reassess your fitness regime. With CrossFit, you're magically better in unrelated things. Things you don't practice here. It's kind of like you're actually getting fit. 

It's kind of amazing.
