When did you join CrossFit Myo?
I chose CrossFit because I wanted to do something challenging and get results from the work outs. Before CrossFit my normal workout consisted of running about 20-40 miles a month and weight training 3-4 days a week. I felt I was doing plenty but not getting the results I wanted. I was more interesting in changing my body composition as opposed to dropping weight. My normal workouts did not provide the variety I needed to achieve the results I wanted. I was pretty much doing the same thing week to week and achieving very minimal results.
