I agree with Josh.

Working out hard in a big group is a totally different experience. Even more different than if you were in a CF class.

Attack the WODs as much as you can without jeopardizing the lecture portion. I wasn't in great shape as I was coming off a torn up ankle when I went to my Level 1 cert, but I got after it anyway and feel like I got more out of it.

You'll learn what intensity really is.
And if you don't think kettleball squat cleans are difficult, I say, step up to the med-ball

Keep this perspective, my good man. Don't let them change you.
Don't worry about the tats; as a Hoosier, I try to maintain a teeth to tattoo ratio of > 1. Since I'm bald... I'll have to keep my melon smooth.

Thanks to all who replied! Your insights are very helpful.
