I joined Crossfit because it seemed very similar to the way I used to train and I wanted to get back into it. I also wanted some time for me to get back to feeling like me. I was interested in Crossfit because it combined a lot of movements with lifting and it seemed challenging and fun. I also that it would pair well with my yoga practice. =) I also wanted something just for me.
My main goal was to feel like myself again. I wanted to feel strong and athletic. I wanted to feel like I could kick some butt. Also, I was looking to lose a bit of weight. I did reach many of my goals. I am still working on a few, but I have made a lot of progress. I reached my goals by getting my butt to Crossfit and adjusting my nutrition.
I feel stronger and healthier. Crossfit has helped with my endurance, it has made me stronger in my yoga practice and other activities I do, plus it has challenged me in really good ways. Crossfit has also given me a great community of people that are cheering you on along the way.
I have been doing CrossFit for just over a year with CrossFit 920 the entire time. I was drawn to CrossFit920 because of their approach. They make it doable for anyone and they are a fun group of individuals. I also love it because it reminds me of my yoga community, they care and support you along the way. We laugh, we cry and we rock out to some awesome music.
I have increased the number of times I go per week. I started doing 3 times a week and now try to get in 4 or 5 days a week. I do it because it makes me feel good.
CrossFit is actually a bit similar to how I lifted in the past, but the WODs are a great combination of strength and endurance in which is not how I worked out before. I really love how I can leave after an hour and I feel great.
Hmmmm…I am not sure that I have a favorite WOD, but I like to jump rope, do deadlifts and jump on boxes. My favorite lift is the deadlift.
