What advice would you give to someone looking to join CrossFit for the first time?
Just try it even though it may feel uncomfortable.  The hardest part is walking into the gym the first time.  It may be intimidating, but there really are all different levels of skill and fitness. Take the time and start with technique and learn the movements, everyone started with an empty bar and light weights.  The great thing about Crossfit is that everything can be scaled based on your strengths and weaknesses. It really is for everyone.
