What do you like/dislike about CrossFit? I love the challenge of the workouts, but I hate when I can’t perform WODs as prescribed.

Least favorite WOD/exercise/skill? pull-ups and push-ups

Advice for a newbie? Don’t give up!  My first WOD was Filthy Fifty and I thought I was going to die during the knees to elbows, but I kept going through all the movements.  Also, my burpees weren’t really burpees by the time I got to them, but I finished the whole WOD and I was so proud, even though it took like an hour to complete it. :)
