The sport is called freerunning (an acrobatic and athletic discipline founded by Sébastien Foucan) a more advanced form of parkour.

The overwhelming majority of CrossFit athletes adhere to a Paleo regimen. Why? That is a very good question. I have been at it two years and have competed in a couple of regionals and I still am not quite sure what the connection is with any certainty. More on this here https://www.rodalewellness.com/fitness/behind-the-crossfit-paleo-connection

In any event, the CrossFit games every year is like our super bowl, and brings out folks who are capable of some incredible acts of speed, strength and endurance  and consequentially, most adhere to paleo.

This is last years winner, Matt Frasier, who aside having a diesel AF physique, the Olympic lifts he is capable of boggle the mind. I have also had the opportunity to meet Matt a couple of times and he is a terrific guy:






Probably next in line from my sport IMO would have to be Rich Froning, who managed to win CrossFit games for several years in a row. No small feat to put it mildly.







All of this said, Crossfit is not going to get you jacked like a body builder either, unless you are going above and beyond. It's outside the scope of what our training incorporates, and frankly Paleo would be woefully inadequate to accommodate this. Paleo is woefully inadequate for most all professional athletes by and large. Which is why you don't see hardly any of them endorsing it. Then again, for the average joe looking to drop some pounds or tone up and are not subjecting themselves to the rigors of say, the NFL, it will do just fine.
