It is one of the toughest yet most rewarding sports in the world. I'm preparing to compete in the 2014 CrossFit Open right now, and my training regimen is absolutely grueling. I drink a ton of water to stay hydrated, and adding ORAL I.V. to my hydration routine has really maximized my work capacity.
