A lawsuit was recently filed by a former sailor in Prince William County against a gym where he underwent a CrossFit workout regimen. Lawyers in Prince William County argued for both sides of the case. The plaintiff claims that the gym owners and a former trainer oversaw a workout at the gym which caused the sailor to suffer from rhabdomyolysis (a condition which results when small shreds of muscular fiber are absorbed though the bloodstream ultimately poisoning the kidneys) as a result of the CrossFit workout performed under the trainer's direction, causing permanent disability. A jury in the case awarded the sailor $300,000 in damages in 2009.
