Smile New to Crossfit in Modesto, CA!

Greetings Crossfitters,

I've been trying to get "in shape" on my own for years now with almost no results. I had no direction and was totally bored standing in my garage doing curls with dumbells...what an idiot. So I started running and doing pullups, pushups etc. and started researching fitness online...and that's when...thank God...I stumbled onto Crossfit! I've been doing modified WOD's for a little over a month and already the difference is incredible. People are commenting that I look different and I certainly feel different. At 35 years young I am in the best shape of my life and I'm just getting warmed up. I love this, I'm completely addicted! This past weekend I built a pullup bar in my garage and am on track to have my home Crossfit gym fully functional by the end of Summer.

Anyway, I just thought I would post my accolades and tell everyone (as if you need to hear it from me) that Crossfit is freaking awesome.

3-2-1 Go!

-Jer

I'm a little north of Bakersfield. Actually I just found out yesterday that I'm only 10 minutes from where they make Malmgren bumper plates.

Did you spend any time in that nifty prison?

Michael, are you a recent inhabitant of Modesto, or a lifer?

Kris,

I was an Air Force kid, born in Novato (just North of SF) and have lived all over the place. But most of my life has been spent here in the quaint and picturesque California Central Valley.

How about you? Are you an Oregon native?

No, I grew up in Modesto, graduated from Beyer High in 1992 and moved up here in 1996.
