How did you hear about CrossFit? From a friend who crossfits at Crossfit Lorton

What do you like/dislike about CrossFit?

I love crossfit.  My favorite part is having so many people supporting and encouraging me.  I’ve made a lot of really good friends here.  The group workouts really motivate me to push myself.  Finally, I just think it’s a very effective and inspiring program. It really works!

Favorite WOD/Exercises/Skill? Press, pushups, max height box jumps

Least favorite WOD/exercise/skill?

Ha—I’m not so dumb as to let Justin and Rob know what I don’t want to do.

Besides CrossFit what do you like to do?  Sports/Hobbies/Activities?

Terps basketball and football games, hang out with family, movies, read, watch TV, eat

Goals for 2011?

Unassisted pullup, crush Fight Gone Bad, get under 190 pounds, 30 minute 5K.

Advice for a newbie?

Show up, don’t quit.  Crossfit can be scary for a newcomer.  You will be amazed when you start doing things you thought were impossible.
