My experience is similar to Heetseeker's. I just joined Crossfit, and I love it. I'm going very slowly because of a herniated disc and the fact that I haven't worked out in 4 years. Prior to that, I worked out as a high performing, age group master athlete in many types of sports and races. I'm very new to lifting and my 'box' is taking things very slowly with me, ensuring that my form is 100%. Currently i attend 2 work outs per week and I need the time in between to recover (I'm 48 yrs old). I hope to work up to 3 x per week over the next few months and then walk, sprint and enjoy some 5 and 10km running races in my spare time. I'm taking this slow and steady: I'm a patient athlete and know that I must build a solid base before I can build fast reps or higher weights into my programme. So far, I'm loving the cross fix experience, but I'm sure that every box and every coach is n=1 -- just like all of us are. /Lu
