I’ve been doing CrossFit for about six months now. Ow! It kills me. It is awful. I love it.
My place of pain is Hercules CrossFit: http://www.herculescrossfit.com/
My role in the workouts is to make everyone else feel good because I’m so bad. Typical early workout: everyone else gets praised for hefting serious Olympic weights. I get praised for dropping the bar safely when I fall down.
