Re: Accreditation on Level 1 Cert

I did my level 1 in July '10. However I've moved twice since then so I imagine they sent it to my old address.

Re: New to CF

Push yourself hard. Eat clean (check out info on paleo). Check out Kelly Starrett's mobility WOD site. Stay well hydrated. Take fish oil. And have fun with it! :D

Re: Combining CrossFit with P90X, and Insanity

As with anything new (diet, exercise, etc.) take time and ease into it so as not to shock the body. Slowly increase food intake and add whole milk.

Re: P90x

I would guess the main appeal of P90X is that you can do it in the safety of your home. To throw P90X puritans into a competition against CF puritans would just be silly; they haven't learned/trained...
