And So It Begins

My first CrossFit workout was over eight years ago. A friend of my mom's son was a coach at CrossFit and offered to give me a taste of what he was up to. I was a division one college water polo player looking for some conditioning between seasons. Matt Mast made me do five rounds of 400 meter row and 15 pull ups on a gravitron. I thought I was fit, why wouldn't I, I was a bad ass water polo player. I was crippled in the best way by the workout and fell in love with CrossFit pretty soon after. Since then I have learned so much, built a career and built more confidence in my capabilities than I ever imagined.

Do you remember your first CrossFit workout?



Perform one snatch and two overhead squats on the minute for 10 minutes. Use a weight that you can move quickly.
