    "This Nike site exceeded my expectations with category and choices. So many colors, styles and uses for my active lifestyle! The site offers 'customization' which I need for my alien body type; long legs, torso and arms and my FUPA. My credit card will definitely be overloaded with all my purchases. I LOVE you, Nike!"

      "Well at least it is simple, but I had to look at it for awhile before I even understood what most of it meant. It is not eye catching and the page seems incomplete or shoddily put together. Like the coding is not cleaned up yet. I was confused by the presence of content below it that is supposedly related but doesn't actually appear to be related at all. I thought the entire page would be relevant to the workout of the day, but it was not. I would have expected elaboration or further instructions."

      "I'd been wanting to try CrossFit, but frankly was kind of intimidated- everyone acted like it was this big crazy thing. It is a lot of work, but CrossFit.com helps break it down day by day so you can see what you need to put into it and what you will get out of it over time. It helped me a lot."
