I think a lot of CF boxes will let you try out a class for free so you probably can try one too and not go back if you don't like it. I think you'll be fine at CF. There is very little pressure on women; everything is scalable. Most guys there appear to go in with the ability to do pullups, and I've not seen a single guy scale a pullup with a band so if you're a guy who can't do a pullup then you might feel kind of weird. But maybe all guys have the ability to do pullups regardless of fitness level? I don't know. I have a lot of trouble with pullups and bar work in general.

Omg, I love CF so much. I don't think I could ever stop. I was planning on moving back to my home state at the end of the summer, but I'm postponing the move b/c if I move, I'm going to be unemployed until I find a job there. (Don't have a job lined up.) But if I'm unemployed, I'll have to stop crossfitting b/c it's so expensive so I really can't justify paying for it without a job (even though I'll have some savings). So yeah, postpone important life event for CF. I must be losing it.
