Anyone can do crossfit…

If you want to do CrossFit, you can! I know the lifting part and some of the exercises can be intimidating.  But, do you realize there are modifications for everything???  Your heart will beat as much as the next person’s.  What is stopping you?

HissyFit…CrossFit

Last night I rode with a group to a nearby town to try CrossFit for the first time.  My husband and son have been doing for a couple of weeks now and bought me three trial visits.  Unable to do one pull-up, I arrived at the warehouse type building full of apprehension.  All types of people, (young/old, male/female, big/small) were running around the outside of the building with a weighted medicine ball.  Some were carrying theirs on their shoulder, some in front of their belly, while others on a hip.  We walked in and the music was pumping.  I was so excited.  There was nothing fancy about it.  The owner/instructor, Michael, did an excellent job with his instruction.  I had no clue what a “burpee” was…Excuse me.  😉  Squats, squats, and more squats with proper form, shoulder presses, 200m run with a medicine ball, etc…  It was different than running but sooooo awesome!

I woke up this morning and parts of my body that I had forgotten about were screaming for attention.  I am going back tonight so I am hoping that I will be able to walk at the Warrior Dash this weekend.  

Any CrossFit experts out there?  I don’t know a lot about it, but the little I have read makes sense.
