    I don't CrossFit, but some people here cross-dress.

    I don't go to the class, but I do dabble in the workout of the day on the website. I have been to one of the sessions when I was visiting a friend out of town and it is not for the leisurely gym goer. I almost threw up but it is an awesome workout and if you need that sort of extra motivation and group exercise dynamic then you'll love it. I do mostly their cardio as it keeps it interesting and I am more focused on building muscle mass than their program is designed for.

    I did it for a bit last summer. Crazy workouts. They claim it is for anyone, but you really need a good fitness base before you start.

    It works!

    All my life, I hated gym workouts (lifting weights), preferring playing sports and working out with my own body weight instead, but CrossFit caught my eye, as it reminds me of workouts I used to do as a kid, in a wrestling club.

    Gonna give it a try.

    I know people who are obsessed with it, and some of them are specialists in health promotion. They now actually started studies on its effectiveness. They kept bugging me to start but I am too unfit for anything I saw them doing and they were very much into performance and competition - not my thing. Just make sure you pay attention to performing whatever you do in an ergonomic way without ruining your back...

    I already have messed up knees, a bad left shoulder and a bad left hip, so rest assure, I am going to take it as my body will allow it.

    I used to run a Health and Wellness center, and I was the nutritionist. My buddy was the exercise physiologist and is certified in Crossfit. Everyday I helped him teach classes and did it quite often myself. Every once in awhile I will do a workout in my gym, Golds, and people will come ask me what I am doing. I am far from obsessed, it really kicks your butt, but I do love that it works fast and gets you in better shape quickly. Even if you are really in shape, Crossfit can still kick your butt.

    I disagree that you need to be in shape/have a base to start it. The beauty of Crossfit is that you can adjust your workout to whatever level you are at. I've helped teach classes with military gym rats and 300 lb spouses. One just goes faster/more reps than the other.

    I have for about 8months now. I love it.
    Costwise its more expensive than a big-box gym membership, but much less (and I think much better) than a personal trainer. Every movement and every workout is scale-able, so you should be able to work around whatever current physical limitations you have.

    It's not for people that don't like to push themselves, are not into fitness for fitness sake (just want to look good), or are not comfortable being a little uncomfortable/ think that they should be able to dink a smoothie and read a magazine while "working out.'

    The the obsessive, geeky, perfectionist, intellectual, semi-masochistic folks like myself seem to like it.

    I'll be looking forward to hearing what you think of it.
