The critics are mainly aimed at the lack of safety and programming. So it depends where you do it. Some gyms aren't the best.
But it's not a fad. Not at all.
Yeah, that's exactly what I gathered reading the critics and opinions. It depends where you go. And it's best that you already have a good basic understanding of, and experience with, weight training and such, so that you can at least judge whether a program/exercise sequence makes sense or not. Some places might prescribe not well thought out program that increase the risk of injury.

I have one question though: Does it make sense to incorporate crossfit into your weight training program? For example, I weight train 4-5 times a week and am considering incorporating 1 day of crossfit per week. Would that be too few crossfit to see significant benefit from it? Or, would that risk overtraining?
