Just started doing crossfit about 4 months ago, and I really enjoy it. I wasn't sure at first if it was for me, but since I started I have been hooked. I signed up for my first local comptetion, taking place this weekend, should be a lot of fun. Looking forward to having good discussions and learning a few things from people on here.

Re: Noobie

I agree about enjoying it. I started doing themain board WOD's (what I could do of them) at my local globo gym. The trainer there wasn't very friendly to crossfit and wanted me to look like the hulk to meet his standards. I finally decided one day (after his critiquing me) that I wasn't pushing myself hard enough so I decided to join a box. I have been going for 2 weeks now and love it. I have the strength to do alot of the movements but my form is terrible (from years of lifting on my own). One of these days I will be able to kip. I have been working on it at home on a pull up bar we have in the backyard but so far I just muscle through them.
