It took you until today to notice?

I'll probably just keep calling you Lynn until I'm doing tabata freestanding full range HSPU's. And scoring ten. On rings. You'll be my coach.

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Stephanie,
I believe the situation is that there are tons of women CFing at home and at affiliates (possibly more than men?), there are just many more men active on this message board.

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Hi Stephanie - Welcome to CF.

Great information here! There are lots of chicks on the forum. I check in every day...post every so often. So, I second Dr. G's comments - plenty of gals at the affiliates (mostly likey working out wihile the guys are busy posting)

. . . women are more quiet. They don't feel called to mount a barrel and harangue by the hour every time they imagine they have produced an idea.

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Oh man Stephanie, we are out there! Check out the home page interview w/ Allison NYC. I think it was posted on Wed, not sure.

Susie~thanks for thinkin' of me! In fact I just got finshed reading your latest post under 'starting' and just smiled cus you are always full of great advice and info. Even though I'm not posting under the 10 pound challenge, I'm still learning from ya and watching for the pull ups!

So yeah, Sephanie, there's a lot of us out there. You'll get familar w/ the names. Vernonica, Sarena, Monique, Alicia, and Becca, come to mind. Spider Chick posts on the wod comments and is quite the writer! They're ALL so wonderfully helpful.

It's just an amazing sense of community. The passion and gratefulness cfers feel for cf is extroidinary to me.

Looking foward to your future posts!

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Girl Power is on deck at CrossFit Watertown too. http://www.crossfitwatertown.com

In fact, most of our members are women -- and we should witness an increase as we move out of the garage and into our own box in November.

But, hey, this was a good thread to start -- nice to know who else is out there besides the usual posters.

LOL...what makes you think the penance won't increase with additional sinning? (Hey, I learned *something* from my Catholic upbringing...)

Hmm, let's see. I picture a mashup of Tabata Ring HSPU and burpee-thrusters with 35# dbs...

But we'll enjoy the video!

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Hi Stephanie,
Welcome to CrossFit. I usually post under Community or Running a CF Affiliate. My WOD times are only posted at my gym on the wall with everyone else's. This is a great message board, so make sure you read alot and learn alot. Again, welcome.

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Hi Stephanie, I've been trying to post my workouts regularly on the front page to keep myself honest. I read these boards, but don't post much. But I'm up here, working out alone in my garage gym in Montana!
