Yea, it happened. I got sucked into the Crossfit vortex. Trust me, this was not planned. I have a hard time paying $$ for trainers and due to Zumba I’m sketchy of things that quickly catch on in pop culture.
“CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program built on constantly varied, if not randomized, functional movements executed at high intensity.”
For me, it was all about timing. Pun intended. You can knockout a good workout in 20 minutes. Hallelujah, coming from someone that had to run an hour+ multiple times a week. I felt like last week I had a Crossfit intervention and curiosity definitely got the best of me.
What’s this Crossfit stuff:
– How I described Crossfit to Norak, “Mom, you remember seeing that pic of Cameron Diaz push that tire in Us Weekly? That’s Crossfit.”
– Best quote ever from The Boss, “It’s not what you’re doing in the gym that’s the problem.” Touché.
– It has the spin “scalability” mindset, scalable to individual ability levels.
– High intensity = that point right before you think you could heave or blackout. Lurve it.
– Your body is sore, that feel good sore, in places you probably haven’t felt in a few years.
– 26.2 miles can show you a lot, but so can 26.2 minutes.
– I realize my poor hus never stood a chance teaching me how to workout. Actually having someone keep an eye on you is what I need, and patience. You aren’t just another person in a class, it’s a fairly small group.
– Accountability. You get what you pay for. Put up or shut up.
Is this for everyone, absolutely not. Andrew supports me, but he could practically teach this stuff and doesn’t need quite the motivation like I do. I am welcoming the challenge, flipping my routine on its head a bit.
This is only day 2, so lawrd only knows how I’ll be feeling in a month. This
new car smell new workout excitement might wear off.
AND big shout out if you are in the ATL/Mayretta area to Crossfit Kennesaw. You can
blame thank them for this post.
