It all starts one day when you’re doing your usual evening routine.
You realize that something needs to change in your life.
You invest in one of those trendy home workout programs.
But, working out at home mostly doesn’t end well.
So, one day you see an ad for a CrossFit gym.
You sign up and tell a friend.
He/She explains that if you do CrossFit your kidneys will explode.
You ignore your friend.
You show up for your intro class.
The coaches tells you that they’re gonna show you how to clean and jerk.
After that, they say they’ll work on your snatch.
You complete your intro classes and get to start participating in the regular WODs.
Then you actually do your first real WOD.
While it isn’t always easy, you keep showing up and working hard.
Now that you’re working out more, you notice your appetite is increasing.
You learn about macros.
Your deadlift is getting pretty heavy and you’re feeling good.
Then you see someone snatch it.
You get your first CrossFit injury.
(Probably from trying to snatch your deadlift.)
You get better.
You get back in the gym.
You set new PRs.
And then, finally, your big day arrives…
Your crush a WOD you get your name on the whiteboard.
