I honestly am relatively new to CrossFit and I wasn’t too sure about it before I started. I’ve always dealt with injuries while wrestling (which was my love for 20 years) and with the stigma that can be placed on CrossFit I was certain I would hurt myself beyond repair. The funny thing is through this experience I have become stronger, resolved some issues and have learned so much more about mobility and taking care of my body, not to mention added immensely to my knowledge of how the body moves and correct form to exercises I had never performed in the past.
“CrossFit sucks. Don’t try it. You’ll get hurt.” Those are the kinds of things you usually hear about it before you even get a chance to see what it is for yourself. I listened to those rumors for a while but eventually decided to see what it was all about. I figured, I was in shape and would probably just cruise through their workouts either way. I was in for a treat.
There has to be something to this whole CrossFit thing! It is changing lives around the world. It is evolving and becoming something more than a fitness program. I quit a successful job to do this full time.
Why do I CrossFit? The answer is very simple—It’s FUN!
Never in my wildest dreams ten yeas ago would I have guessed that at age 30 I would be an athlete, working at gym and competing in a sport. If you had asked me then what sports I played I would have said “none” and what I wanted to be doing when I was 30 the answer would have been “Advertising Executive.”
