How and when did you start doing CrossFit?
Started June 6, 2014 after a few years of causal lifting, I was looking for something more structured and competitive. A trainer at the gym I was going to showed me some videos of the 2013 games and Rich Froning, knew I wanted to try it right away. My first day at CFB was Fran, did it RX thinking I would crush it, got absolutely destroyed. Even though I couldn’t walk all weekend I couldn’t wait to come back on Monday.
