I swore I would never do crossfit. Just like I swore I’d never eat paleo. Or be involved in direct marketing. Or that I’d ever own a small dog. Or that I’d date a “lax bro…”
Anyways, I needed to try something new. It was hard for me to motivate myself to do anything BUT run and I could feel myself getting softer every day.
To make a long story short: Crossfit is awesome. I feel stronger, more confident and I have already made a habit.
Also, crossfit is NOT as scary as I thought it was going to be (box jumps still give me nightmares though). It’s basically the same workouts I was doing when I was lifting just higher intensity. Myself and the people around me are constantly pushing themselves which is not only physical for me but it’s emotional! I leave the gym feeling like a warrior princess every. single. time.
Shoutout to Jon, Gina, Nick and all of the other amazing people at Crossfit South Shore who have made me feel like a part of this community literally since day one. I can’t wait to see how far I can go!
