I'm new to Crossfit as well, and held off signing up for so long because of the cost. I finally sucked it up and just did it, and soooo happy I did...I love it! I still have my gym membership and was contemplating just continuing crossfit on my own after some time so I don't have to pay the crossfit fees. I like the people and the accountability that comes with it too, however, I'm certain I could do the workouts on my own if I had to. Many of them are online, so it's definately possible. I don't push myself as hard on my own, so that's another benefit of they crossfit classes as well.
I have seen many, many cross fit workouts posted on blogs and such, so it shouldn't be hard to start a collection of workouts. Then just do them at the gym. I would suggest doing them during a quiet time if you need to use more than one piece of equipment) but it should be just like any other circuit type workout.

There are no shortcuts. No magic bullets. No secret spells. What works is hard work, dedication, and a daily dose of chocolate.

I've recently gotten into this whole Crossfit craze, and I love it. I just completed my on-ramps and am going to classes. My only issue is that I'm pretty broke. And I like having access to a pool and other gym equipment like ellipticals, etc. just to mix things up a bit. I can go to the gym at my college as part of being a student, but they don't do Crossfit classes and I really want to stick with it.
So for you Crossfit experts out there, this may be a dumb question but I'm still a novice...can (and how) Crossfit workouts be done in a normal gym? Obviously, the ideal would be to go to a Crossfit gym...and I'll get there (financially). But what should I do in the meantime?
