CrossFit. What can I say, I am addicted to it! Compared to all of the training I’ve had over the years, it is the best way to work out, and it keeps you coming back for more. I can’t seem to get enough! I started CrossFit (CF) at Crossfit Gold 9 months ago, and my husband joined 6 months ago (after not working out–at ALL–for over a year, he’s lost 23 pounds and feels great!). Though he’s not a “Workout Fiend” like I am, we are both passionate about it, which makes for great dinner conversation! Since doing CF, I have noticed tremendous gains in my strength and endurance, as well as changes in my body. I am leaner, more toned (my arms finally have definition!) and I have less body fat. I feel great and I love shopping for clothes that are a size smaller than what I wore before I became pregnant!
For those of you who don’t know what CF is, it is about functional fitness, focusing on core conditioning, utilizing movements from gymnastics, Olympic Lifting and military training. Best of all, it is scalable to all fitness levels. Since becoming a Certified Personal Trainer, my next goal is to obtain my CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Certification so I can coach, as well as train clients in the CF modalities.
I will continue to post my WODs (Workout of the Day, for those that aren’t familiar with the CF lingo), experiences and adventures at our box (CF lingo for “gym”) and any other things pertaining to CrossFit.
