CrossFit

So I'm thinking...maybe....that I'm going to start doing CrossFit!

I've been thinking about doing it for awhile now, but just couldn't commit. The two trainers I work with got certified and started doing CrossFit workouts and have been trying to get me to do it. I like the way I workout now...but I guess I'm going to give into the peer pressure!

But really, I like the fact that it's going to be a huge challenge for me and that I'll always have goals to work towards. Plus, if it'll make me look like those girls that do CrossFit, even better!!

There are so many things that I have to learn in order to do the workouts. It's going to be hard! I did one CrossFit workout, and it about killed me! But I'm up for the challenge.

So what is CrossFit? It's a strength and conditioning system that combines weightlifting, sprinting and gymnastics. There are 10 fitness skills that CrossFit workouts aim to help you improve: cardiorespiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, accuracy, agility, and balance. The workouts are always varied and intense and include things like lifting weights, jumping on boxes, flipping tires, throwing medicine balls, swinging kettlebells, carrying odd objects, rowing, running, and climbing ropes.

  1. This is funny cause last night I looked at Crossfit Louisville East and I am considering hiring one of the trainers. A girl I work with used Nicki Reading and was very pleased with her. I think Crossfit is awesome! I am with you though...one workout about killed me! lol :)
