Jen and Aneesh at this mornings 6.00am Class.

A word on "I can't do CrossFit because I'm not strong enough or fit enough or I can't do the movements".  

Jen in the background is scaling her Push Ups. Scaling is an important part of CrossFit, we all have to scale something, sometime, it really is no big deal. Because Jen has difficulty doing a Push Up off the ground she has a bar sitting off the ground which then scales her Push Up to a slightly easier degree. Working from this angle for as long as needed will eventually get her Push Up strong and perfect.  

CrossFit is for everyone, the hardest part is walking through the door, not what you do once you walk through the door.
