When/Why did you first start doing CrossFit?
My first class was July 25th, 2012. It was a 20 minute AMRAP of pull-ups, pushups and air squats. I had to use a green band for the pull-ups and could only do about 3 to 4 pushups at a time. Joy came up to me at the end of the workout and said “don’t worry Michael we usually don’t do 20 minute AMRAPS.” I am sure she thought she would never see me again. But next week will be my 1 ½ year anniversary at Crossfit Beyond.

I was going to Gold’s gym, using the treadmill and stair climber.
