I've been eyeing CrossFit for months now, and it's time I gave it a shot, don't you think? Tony Horton and Shaun T still manage to reach through the television screen to kick my ass on a regular basis, but not as brutally as before. And with Round 3 coming to a close, the masochistic, challenge-seeking side of me is leaning towards joining a CrossFit affiliate.

On the other hand, the whimpering, cowardly, risk-averse side of me would prefer to curl up in a fetal position and cry rather than entertain the prospect of doing some of the CrossFit Workouts of the Day (WODs).

There are three(!) CrossFit affiliate gyms within two-and-a-half miles of where I live, and I'm visiting one of them tomorrow to learn more. If all goes well, I'll likely sign up with the expectation (hope?) that CrossFit will beat me to a sweaty pulp every single day (that I can actually manage to work out).

If anyone out there has experience with CrossFit and wants to drop me a line, let me know what you think of it.
