Most people stick with crossfit because they like the competitive aspect of the WODs and the community aspect of the boxes. Not everyone can push themselves, or train with intensity on their own. And the shared suffering builds camaraderie that you don't find in regular gyms. I personally have mixed feelings about the general crossfit programming, but this varies significantly by box and coach, for example, I don't agree with doing high rep olympic lifts as part of a wod. Like any other training regiment, it is not for everyone. If you like it great, do it, if not there are plenty of other excellent programs which work.
