I have to admit, this Crossfit thing is an asskicking. I'm only in the 101 classes and from looking at the regular WOD's, I got some work to look forward to. For example, on Saturday the WOD was called The DON, which consisted of:

66 reps each
Deadlifts (110/70)
Box jumps (24/20)
Kettlebell swings (55/35)
K2E
Sit-ups
Pull-ups
Thrusters (55/40)
Wall balls (20/15)
Burpees
DUs

Granted, that was a partner WOD, but still...

Ok - I'm interested now. I'm WAY out of shape @ 215 and only 5'11 and 45. Is this something out of reach?

Intense workouts that are different every day , in a group setting , the wife does it 3 to 4 times a week .

Many gyms in area , she goes to Crossfit 425 in Bellevue . Look for introductory offers on groupon .

After the 12 month, you can take it without lube.

Price is keeping me from it, too.


25€ for 2 WODs a week, 30€ for 4, 35€ without limits. Thinking hard about it anyways.

See if there's a Meetup group in your area doing Crossfit.

Sign up for a month, learn the basics, then just get WOD's from a blog like GoRuck http://training.goruck.com/ or SOFWODS https://sofwods.com/2014/02/sof-wod-feb-25-3/

Or trim your budget. $145 a month is $5 a day. I save about that much each day packing a lunch instead of eating carryout.

Crossfit is really over priced and only worth it if you go all the time. if you go all the time you get into the "crossfit Changed my life, talk about your certification levels Etc" group. It gets borderline gay. On top of that there are no other work outs you can do there. Only CF.

However if you find a normal gym that also offers CF Its worth it. In Sacramento I belong to Pipeworks. Its a climbing gym. They have the climbing area, and good size weight/ cardio area, two yoga rooms and....a crossfit building next door. Cost...70 a month unlimited. I go to CF 3-4 days a week and lift and or run the other days. The Instructors are awesome and not all CF clicky.

I really enjoy it and will push my self much harder than I will by my self.
