I love Crossfit. I do not love burpees, wall balls, running but I love crossfit.
I have been doing it for 11 months. Sort of, I was off the wagon in Sept and October, but I am back on and feeling great. I love the competitive part. While I don’t “compete” with my other classmates, they do help to push me past what I think I should do. I put the extra five lbs on the bar becuase she does, and I know if she can I can.
I also love how everything is measurable. It pushes me to beat the time last time, or a new PR in a strength movement. I like how I can see that everyone else similar did it in 8 min so I set my WOD goal approprately.
Goals are another good thing about crossfit. I feel that I am more committed to it becuase I set goals and have things measured. I am more accountable to myself this way.
I like what it does for my body. Of course I love the fact that I feel powerful because I can lift 115 lbs over my head. Who wouldn’t!
The community. The other unexpected benefit of crossfit. While I am still struggling to feel a real part of my box’s community, I can’t blame crossfit for that. While it is a little clicky, that is really just because a lot of the members have known each other growing up together or before coming to crosfit. Even with that everyone is very nice, encouraging and motivating. I just haven’t been able to take any of these frendships outside the box yet. Thats ok. That is partly my problem too, everytime we have had a box sponsered social event I have been out of town or working my part time job. So that of course makes it seem that I am not interested either. But as part of my goal to embrace the area full on for the next year… I am embracing crossfit more and plan on partciapting in any next social event regardless of other obligations. Maybe we will have a ladies night out xmas party!
