OK, so this page is called “CrossFit Basics” and I will add articles that go over essential beginner’s topics.
Scaling – here is a post on workout scaling with one video and several articles. THIS IS ESSENTIAL READING!!!
CrossFit Startup Guide Part 1 – PDF of part one of a two-part article for beginners from the CrossFit Journal.
CrossFit Startup Guide Part 2 – PDF of part two of the article for beginners from the CrossFit Journal.
What Is Fitness? – This is the article that more or less started it all. Lengthy, but worth the read.
CrossFit Journal – a TON of the articles are free, but a measly $25/year gets you unlimited access to EVERYTHING, which is more than you can read/watch.
