Tips for Starting CrossFit

It’s time! You want to get in shape, so you think about giving this “CrossFit” thing a try. You walk into the gym, and it’s a little bit intimidating: You see fit-looking people wearing t-shirts with words that you don’t understand (“What the heck is a pood?!”), joking with each other about things that sound sketchy and/or illegal…

INTENSITY AND SCALING

This is a throw back to a blog Lucas wrote a couple of years ago. The message is as meaningful now as it ever was. Give it a read.
