Getting Wife on CF


I have been Crossfitting for almost 4 months now. I believe I have finally convinced my wife to give it a go! I am so happy about it! Her initial reluctance has been due to the pullups and other things that she "can't do". I have given up my gym membership and I am dedicated to my home gym. However, she still goes and has access to a gravitron. For O-Lifts, I think I have her convinced to try it out with a dowel or broomstick or whatever (no weight).

I have talked to her a while in ways that (I think) make sense to her as a former competative swimmer. I planned on starting her on the BrandX modified WOD's. I review the FAQ's quite often. Is there anything else I should keep in mind in helping my wife get going? She is a wildlife biologist that spends quite a bit of time in the field walking streams, and we have a 16 month old.

Thanks in advance for any advice or feedback the community might have to offer!
