Welcome to both of you!!!

I am on a 1 Year Challenge to take the weight off and have been using CF to balance out my running and biking- it will take care of my strength training and flexibility. I have actually seen the scale stall a bit with the add thanks to the muscle building, so don't get discouraged if it happens to you too... It will start back up again, and just think your body is becoming crazy fit with all this CF!

Hey ladies! I'm new, too! I went to a free class about a month ago and got my butt kicked by a whole bunch of tabata air squats. OUCH! It was fun though! Today I went to the first of three training classes to learn the movements before getting into the group WODs. I know it takes a long time to develop the strength and flexibility to do all the movements with perfect form, but it is a little frustrating. I have to keep telling myself that it's ok to be new at something and it's ok to be out of shape as long as you're trying to get back in shape! But it's still frustrating. My question is: How long did it take until you felt like you weren't "the new guy" anymore?

Hi and Welcome!

It's normal to be nervous! The one thing I love about CF is that anyone can do it. It will be hard, but work at where you are right now. Push yourself within your abilities.

I have been doing CF for almost 2 1/2 years. I recently (2 months ago) changed boxes and was nervous too. I found out my new place is much more difficult and really pushes me even harder. I love it.

I will warn you - it is very addictive :) Good luck today - you'll do great!

I have doing CrossFit for almost 6 months now! I still get nervous about going;-) But the more I go the better and stronger I get! You'll be pushed to show yourself just how strong you really are! I am amazed and sometimes angered when my trainer makes me put more weight on my bar, But in the end he is right and I feel so proud of myself for accomplishing it! As long as your mind is right, you will love and get so much out of CrossFit! Also!!!! Remember that everyone started out somewhere around the same level as you! I like to forget that sometimes;-) Good luck and I hope you enjoy your WOD!

Hey all,

I am just starting CrossFit-- today! I've been excited waiting for the day, but now that I'm a few hours away, I'm starting to get nervous and wondering what I'm getting myself into. However, I know it will be worth it in the end. My primary motivation is to lost weight, but as that progresses I want to become stronger and healthier too. Joining this team to try to find like-minded women who have been a part of CrossFit for some time and know what it's like to give me some ongoing encouragement as I progress through the program.
