    I am one of the big fans of Crossfit and very inspired to find three episodes videos. I really like these videos and thank you so much for sharing.

    My wife wants to start, but there is no place close (45 minutes away). Her cousin does it though and she's becoming a beast.

    i like that crossfit seems to motivate a bunch of people and gets them moving some weights.

    i hate that many of the gyms are so expensive and that so many people are getting such poor coaching from coaches that don't have much in the way of qualifications other than a 2 day class and $1000.

    If you guys haven't been keeping up you should. The ones that have good for you. I know theres a lot of Crossfit haters out there, but these guys are doing a great job at adventure traveling. I think this is one of the best episodes yet.

    Pretty cool stuff! Considered joining a few times, but never did for the fear of injury... Might one day.

    I just signed up tonight. I got my six 101 classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays over the first three weeks of November, then it's on!

    I watched a WOD today before talking to the instructor. One girl I work with was doing the pull-ups. WOD said 30, she was getting her ass kicked much sooner than that. I would have been too to be honest. I'm looking forward to it. I'm in good shape now, but I'm in need of a change to keep my motivation up.

    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...
