Words of encouragement to new CrossFitters: Keep it fun! Nobody should dread coming to the gym every day. You’ll find that in the beginning, learning all of the new movements and terms can be overwhelming and, at times, frustrating. But don’t let it get you down! Instead of focusing on the things you cannot do (yet!), be proud of what you are accomplishing on a daily basis, and be sure to make friends with the person lifting on the platform next to you. Progress and performance will come with time as long as you continue to show up… which you are much more likely to do if you leave here each day with a smile on your face!
