New from Akron

Hey all, I'm Nate from Akron, Ohio and I'm new to the CrossFit boards so I figured I'd introduce myself. I was first introduced to CrossFit about 2 months ago and I recently started working privately with a trainer just to get a feel for it about a month ago and I'm loving it! I've been reading a lot on the boards and trying to just increase my overall knowledge. I'm 18 years old, about 5'8 with around 10.6% bf (at early April) and at 156lbs. I'm also working on cleaning up my diet on the Zone which I'm excited about as well. Some beginning goals I have:

1st Muscle up (which I accomplished yesterday!)
Sub 5 minute Fran - my first time was atrocious
Deadlift 2x bw - My max is 205
HSPU without the wall
20+ round Cindy (15 Current)
Finish a 5k, 10k, Half Marathon at some point
Become proficient (50+ unbroken) at double unders

I'm sure I have more but I'm drawing a blank. The running will be my biggest barrier, I've never been particularly good at that. But I just wanted to introduce myself and I look forward to getting into the best shape of my life!

Re: New from Akron

Hey Nate, welcome aboard!

Let us know how you're getting on with your goals. Just remember one thing: Don't become too obsessed with any one of them, you might end up disregarding other skills in favour of only a handful of things you can get better at, instead of the whole set.

Good luck!

Diego
