Come CrossFit in the picture and you would rarely ever do the same workout twice in a week, it is ever changing and ever challenging yet it has a very specific structure that it follows combining endurance, weight lifting and gymnastics which makes it never boring.
CrossFitters find themselves participating and competing in workouts that are based on different WODs (workout of the day) and there are literally innumerable combinations of exercises that you can perform.
