Ok thanks. I see you're in St. Louis too. Where do you Crossfit? I'm right near the one in Brentwood. I know of Crossfit Ares where I trained BJJ in St. Peters.

Re: Motivation and Money!

It's for 20 classes max. You have to get them in within the 15 weeks. I may try a 10 week pass to see if I can stick with it.
