Episode 54

I have been doing CrossFit for just about a year; in this week’s episode I share 5 things that I have learned in that year. When I started CrossFit I already had a good base of strength build up. However, if you don’t have a lot of strength or haven't ever picked up a barbell, that  should not keep you away from a CrossFit Box! CrossFit is a great work out that provides variety, a community, accountability, and support, as you build strength. 

5 Takeaways from this One Year of CrossFit episode:

  • There are a lot of perceptions about CrossFit, you would probably be surprised to see how inaccurate most of them are – the point and focus has changed since it started. 
  • Regardless of how you exercise/train, it is ALWAYS you vs. you. 
  • The best way to learn anything, fitness included, is to layer habits. Master one part and then add another. 
  • If you aren’t feeling challenged, it’s time for you to find something else. 
  • Getting stronger is ALWAYS a good idea, no matter what your goals are. 

I have really enjoyed my time at CrossFit. I love the variety, and think that most people would highly benefit from the community feel, variance in workouts, and more focused coaching. That being said, if you have specific training goals, it may not be the best option for you.
