Hello people, my name is Jonathan and I wanted to introduce myself to the message boards on here ^_^. I started doing my own crossfit workouts after seeing the 'NASTY GIRLS' video. That just gave me a lot of inspiration to go into a more brutal work out.

A reason why I am working out, I also have MS (multiple sclerosis) for the last 5 years and counting. I have had balance problems, and would sometimes get tired from doing a minor job. I remember a few years back they say that exercising helps keep MS down low, so I got myself active. I started with the BOWFLEX (sorry, but it was a start) . I wasn't really into doing free weights until three days ago after visiting the crossfit website. I don't see much results (it's only been three days), but I will not stop what I am doing.

I love doing it, and love the benefits it is giving me.}}

Welcome, Jonathan! I only started a week ago, so in a similar boat. Great so far, I think feeling like you're actually making full use of the time working out is the best benefit so far. More to come. :-)

I'm about a month in and my numbers are going up significantly on everything.

The best part for me is the WOD. If left up to me, I tend to do exercises that are easy or comfortable for me, and will give up sooner than my body needs to. The WOD gives me a ton of variety in my routine as well as a mission to accomplish every time I hit the gym. I really push myself to reach that goal, whether it's lifting a few more pounds or shaving off a few seconds.
