High intensity interval training
As mentioned above, CrossFit exercises are based on high intensity interval training principle. That means your metabolic rate is high for many hours after the exercise and you continue to burn calories, lose weight and gain muscles even after the exercise session is complete. It not only improves oxygen consumption of the body but also regulates blood sugar levels and blood pressure of a person. Apart from that high level of HGH are released during CrossFit training sessions. All these factors when combined together can create a positive atmosphere for the body to grow. There are evidences for growth of bones and cartilages in people doing CrossFit regularly.
People doing CrossFit regularly have noticed drastic improvement in their flexibility, stabilization and coordination. CrossFit exercises are specifically designed to stretch your muscles and engage your joints in an effective and healthier manner. Even before you start with strength training, certain stretches designed in warm up exercises engage your joints and stretch your muscle to open them up for aggressive exercises that are lined up. Improved flexibility improves your body posture, make you look lean as well as a little taller
Stimulation of joints for improved mobility
There is no denial of the fact that joints are usually the places where nutrition reaches the last and they end up cracking as the time passes. But high intensity CrossFit exercises stimulates the joints, increase flow of blood in the joints, enhances absorption of nutrition in them and at the same time improve their mobility. High mobility in the joints can contribute in making you look taller. Now it all depends on you as you can use your joints mobility either to stunt your growth or make you taller with CrossFit exercises.
Improves your cardiovascular activity
Researches have proved that any kind of physical activity makes the heart pump blood in a better way and improve your cardiovascular system. CrossFit exercises are an amazing combination of cardio, body weight workout and powerlifting exercises. When you do CrossFit exercises you are all set to experience the greatest pump of blood from the heart. This improved and enhanced blood circulation in the body further leads to high HGH levels and stimulates the growth plates to make the person grow tall
You become a fat burning machine
Since CrossFit workouts focus on movements rather than muscles, it will make you burn fats fast and in a better way. Unlike functional training its main focus is on body movements and you will be able to put your entire body at work in a better way. Researchers have found that less fat in the body means more testosterones levels in the body. It is mainly due to the fact that the genes involved in producing testosterones are also responsible for controlling fat in the body. If you eat good fats in your diet and burn the deposited adipose in an effective manner, it will not increase your testosterone levels but also stimulate growth in the body. Apart from that with loss of fat, your body will automatically look lean and tall.

CrossFit is an amazing exercise program that involves all your joints, muscles, bones and cardiovascular system. In order to get effective, quick and long lasting results from this exercise program, you should perform it for at least 2 to 3 times in a week.
Now coming to the second part of the question, how tall you can grow from it will differ from person to person. It depends on many factors such as your age, your sex, genetic factors, your dietary habits, nutrition and kind of CrossFit training you are undertaking.
