You simply don't get it.
What you describe is bodybuilding.
CrossFit is all about PERFORMANCE. How strong, how fast, how explosive. Basically the decathlon translated to the 21st century, but more modern. And more interesting. And not as lame.
That you get BUFF, SWOLE, RIPPED, YOKED, JACKED, SHREDDED (pick your favorite), is just a side effect of CrossFit. A nice one though.
Actually I DO get it 100%. What YOU described is yes, what crossfit PRETENDS to be (about PERFORMANCE). But in reality, all they ever talk about is what you always talk about:
Looking "BUFF, SWOLE, RIPPED, YOKED, JACKED, SHREDDED."
And this also explains why they workout without shirts and constantly snap photos of themselves and each other and then post on the web every 5 seconds. (and most of course don't even look particularly fit)
Sure they are brainwashed into thinking they are great athletes too, but that's just a cover for their real goal: physical appearance, and convincing themselves they are "BADA$$ WARRIORS!!" and that they are "KILLING IT!!!" and they "TOTALLY ROCKED THE WORKOUT " , etc, etc (insert macho catch-phrase or slogan)
