Being intimidated by Crossfit is a very positive and healthy reaction to the idea of doing workouts that are extreme and could easily cause injury.
Most people are much better off avoiding Crossfit and sticking with a more reasonable, do-able fitness program My advice is to leave Crossfit to the bad asses that like to strut around the Crossfit boxes and look down on everyone that is not able to perform workouts at their level.
Hi Evelyn! I am so glad to hear you are enjoying CrossFit.. I am trying to lose a lot of weight myself and I signed up for a Rugged Maniac run in May. I am glad you posted about your experience because I have been kind of intimidated by it. I think will check out a newbie class! Good luck with your goals!
I am new to Cross Fit. I just completed my 3rd workout today. I am sooooo sore, but soooooo glad that I made it to the workouts.
I am working one-on-one with my coach in her garage gym. She is a good friend of mine and she offered to train me for free. She heard that I was getting ready to have bariatric surgery and offered to train me. She wants me to give CrossFit a chance before going any further in the surgery process, so I agreed to give it a shot :).
I was in the Army Reserves and I was also Airborne. After training was over, I gained the weight steadily over the last 9 years. I went from 130 to my current weight of 246 in 9 years.
When I was in my Airborne training and my Job training, I thrived on competing with the other 3 females in my glass and even some of the guys. I was a P.T. stud. Now I am a P.T. dud LOL.
So far I have loved the workouts. They make me sweat like crazy and I am sore as all get out, but I have not been this proud of myself in the last 9 years. I have about 70lbs to lose to get to my goal weight. My goal is also to be able to max an Army PT test again at the age I was when I last maxed it, which was 23. I am 34.
