Hey all,
I've been using crossfit for a while to get workouts, get ideas for my boot camps, etc. but I am new to posting. I love the crossfit workouts. I'm so tired of seeing guys come in the gym the first exercise they do is a bicep curl, then rest. Then they leave the gym thinking they're pumped. Give me a break. I'm sick of seeing people waste time on single jointed exercises. I haven't done a single jointed exercise in months and I haven't missed it at all. It's all about intensity and efficiency.
Damon

Also, a bit about myself (as I see others are doing). I have been in the fitness business for about 10 years now, but more recently have started taking my programs to a whole new level. I started like everyone else I think, uninformed and doing straight set bodypart, etc. Anyway, I at one point weighed about 275 at my 5'9 height. In 2002, I said enough and I developed a whole new eating lifestyle and began working out everyday and am proud to say that I lost about 70 pounds back around 2003. It took me about a year and some change to achieve my initial goals and to this day I maintain my weight between 200-205. I developed a passion for fitness during my weight loss and studied to become a personal trainer. I have since worked at Ballys, Sportfit, and more recently in the corporate fitness arena at Johns Hopkins fitness center and now at a government facility. I also train clients on the side for my own thing.
I have watched my training develop over the years and now crossfit is the icing on the cake. I love these workouts. Granted, they are too difficult for me to give some of my clients, but I do them myself and love how I feel afterwards.
Anyway, enough about me. I'm here to discuss and share workout ides, boot camps I teach, etc. Hit me up.
