Well, I did it. I took the leap. I'd signed up for the CrossFit fundamentals at College Hill CrossFit last week but we had a huge snowstorm so it was postponed until today. Myself and 13 others were at the class. Tracy, one of the co-owners, and Whitney, a coach were in charge of the class. We learned about what is CrossFit, where it came from and then moved into basic movements we would be doing a lot of if we joined. We used PVC pipe to be our barbell tonight so we could get started on form and understanding some of the moves. I thought they did a great job teaching us about many of the moves.
We finished the class with a workout.
4 Stations. 1 minute at each, then rotate. 2x
Kettle Bell Swings
So, um, that 8 minutes was an ass kicking workout. And I loved it. I'm ready to sign up and now that I've completed the fundamentals class I can.
I hope to get in a WOD (workout of the day) at CHC (College Hill CrossFit) at least 3 times a week.

Lets see where this journey along with keeping trying to eat better and doing some cycling when it warms up / drys out, can take me.
