Thumbs up Just joined the board

Greetings, I just joined the board after starting Crossfit in late January. I was introduced to it by my life long friend who is an Officer of Marines. I was a steady weight lifter for 8 years but it doesn't hold a candle to the awesomeness of Crossfit. I love the practical applications and the full body workout. I studied Krav Maga for 2 years and Crossfit is very similar in intensity but with weights instead of boxing and Muay Thai. I'm indirectly training for the military and Crossfit will certainly make the transition easier if I do go providing I'm not medically disqualified. Hoorah Crossfit!

Absolutely. It's not always easy being lean.

Thanks for the welcomes.
