Great story!...inspirational...

Neighborhood Crossfit, that's what it's all about!..that is the true sense of community that Crossfit is constantly trying to convey. They got it right there...
I work out in my driveway and basement and I wish I could get a few ppl from my neighborhood involved...

That is cool! I have neighbors that are showing an interest, already have them eating paleo and losing weight, hope it turns out that they drink the kool aid and join me and my wife in my crossfit garage gym.

Oh Camp Lawton!!! I flipped many a tire around that camp in 2010-2011, I jumped on those exact boxes more than a few times as well. Memories, Memories.

Loved the video. I'm from Portugal, I'm a cop, the first time I did Crossfit was when I went to Texas to take my Swat School with a fellow officer and good friend and I loved it. I recently started crossfiting again but there is no Crossfit culture here despite the fact there are already several Crossfitters working out on regular gyms (like me). Hopefully in a near future I can put up a video here about the first affiliated Crossfit box in Portugal or at least in Faro.

Inspirational story about Tim. I think we can all relate that sometimes life just happens. Keep the inspirational stories and great WODs coming our way.

M/ 38/ 134 lbs/ 5'-6"
D.U. & Situps (I always do my situps anchored) - this is a speed workout, so anchoring them is o.k. in my opion... get more work done faster.
took a few minutes rest and then warmed up with bar, 95 lbs, 115 lbs, 125 lbs of the PP
then did a 125 lb PP every 15 seconds for 7 minutes of 28 reps in 7 minutes. (Got this one from K-Star's website). I used wrist wraps to minimize the pain in the wrist over 28 reps.

Good stuff overall... very fast in my lunch hour.
