I've looked through the boards for a while now and it seemed about time to really take part in this awesome community. I've been WODing for almost half a year and Crossfit has definitely changed the way I think about fitness and pushed me over all my weight/strength/endurance plateaus already (first muscle-up achieved just last weekend!). My fitness background consists of lots of running and taekwon do in hight school and more recently judo, jiu-jutsu, thai boxing, and swimming. Been lifting with my dad all along also (I've gotten him into crossfit and olympic lifting recently as well). I've got a decently outfitted home gym that my recruited friends are quickly outgrowing and at the University of Virginia, where I will be a third year, I've survived at their globo gyms. Just finished reading Enter the Zone and currently working on Starting Strength to improve my big lifts. Now I'm looking forward to picking everyones brain here on the forums!
