How it all got started...

This morning's CrossFit Women's workout was

Nasty Girls:
50 squats
7 muscle ups
10 hang clean

I've heard of this workout before and have seen the video. What is interesting is that this video is the reason a lot of people get started/hooked/addicted to CrossFit. This morning Carey told us a little story about her experience with seeing Nasty Girls for the first time.

See, Lance emailed Jeremy and told him to check out this video called Nasty Girls on Jeremy immediately called his sister (Carey) and told her about the video and the website.

Carey had heard of CrossFit but hadn't ever done it or really looked into it. Sitting at her computer, completely dumbfounded, she watched the video for 10 minutes. "It brought tears to my eyes and I immediately called Kris (husband) into the room and made him watch it. I said to myself 'I gotta try this.' "

Carey called Jeremy back and said "let's get certified!" She was 3 months pregnant at the time. And in Carey's words,

"We flew in to Colorado one month later to our Level 1 Cert.
3 days later we walked out and the double C's came to life."

It all starts with a vision.
Then it takes an action.
