Even after taking two beginners courses, one in Spanish and one in English, it still took me well over a year to remember the names of the lifts and what all the CrossFit acronyms meant.

Scary Moments

Over the past month or so, I found myself in some sketchy situations.

One of these times, I was jump roping, and I whacked someone with my jump rope. I’d sort of lost track of where my jump rope was going, and how far I was hopping, and I caught someone else in the shin. Sorry Mike!
