What’s the most common mistakes you see among new athletes at your affiliate?
Trying to do too much too quick. It’s hard not to get competitive but you have to go at your own pace. If you try and do too much weight or get too intense when you’re new you’ll burn yourself out or even hurt yourself.
If you could give someone new to CrossFit just one piece of advice, what would it be?
Trust your coaches, they know what they are doing. Let them guide you and you will succeed and each your goals.
