If you read about CrossFit online it is easy to get into the habit of going to the same CF Sites like the CrossFit Journal, Mobility WOD, or CrossFit Football everyday. Just to bust you out of your routine and keep it constantly varied in your internet research I wanted to highlight a few of my favorite non-CF fitness related Sources of info online.

Coach Sommer is one of the best mens artistic gymnastics coaches in America. His forum is cool though because it is focused on gymnastics strength training for fitness minded people not just gymnasts.
