It all started when one of my buddies picked up CrossFit about a year ago. All he kept talking about is how great CrossFit was and how it just killed him (in a good way) each and every day.
I wasn’t sold just yet, I wasn’t doing to much daily exercise and was being pretty lazy. At the same time my wife had a close friend that was doing CrossFit and kept asking her to join. My wife always wants me to do things with her (good i guess…. hehe) and always told her friend she didn’t want to go.
One day I was watching ESPN2 and saw the CrossFit games. That is when it hit me. I thought wow these aren’t just body builders running around doing crazy regular physical exercises. These are super fit athletes that are some of the fittest people in the world. They aren’t just lifting weights, they are running around and doing all sorts of activities.
That is what really got me interested in CrossFit. I like the diversity of the WOD (workout of the day) each day and always doing something different. I get bored very fast going to the gym and just lifting weights and running.
CrossFit takes exercising to the next level and it is fun. So to get to the point, I finally told my friend I would join the local Fort Worth CrossFit gym and have been doing it 4-6 time a week since. If you haven’t done a CrossFit workout, you gotta try one!
