I admit, I did it. I tried a crossfit class.
After 14 sessions with a personal trainer, I just was burnt out on everything to do with the gym. I was looking for a change, and so I went to one class.
After that first class, I had that "exercise high". I even had it when I couldn't walk for the next 4 days. So once my personal training sessions were done, I quit the Y and signed up for crossfit.
I'm 9 sessions into it now, and I am not looking back. I have been sore almost every day. I go 4 times a week, and I get a lot done in one hour.
The coach is incredible, the other people are very encouraging, and even though I am weak as can be, I feel myself getting stronger every day.
Call me crazy, but I can already tell a difference in my abs, arms, and legs. Let's add the butt in there too, based on the number of squats that we do daily!
Obviously my ultimate fitness goal is to be in shape, run races that I enjoy, do triathlons that I enjoy, and be able to get out and enjoy myself. The coach knows my goals and is going to help me incorporate those things that I need in order to be successful in what I want to do.
I still can't do a pullup or a double under. I may never be able to climb the rope, but I do know that I am getting stronger every day, I feel much better, and I'm a much happier person to be around when I get in a great workout. I love the feeling of being smoked at the end of the hour and thinking that there is no way that I can walk to my car.
So consider me one of the crazies, because I can see why people love Crossfit, and count me as one of those too!
