But, I went that first day and loved the atmosphere. A six-month commitment seemed like a long time as I'd be going at least three times a week. However, I took a chance and signed up.
As most of you know, I quickly fell in love with it. I didn't know why necessarily but I think it was a combination of things.
Since I joined Crossfit, I've had a lot of opportunities because of this blog. The most important one has been working with Reebok to help promote their brand, their line of clothing, shoes and more. I was able to travel to Reebok World Headquarters for a tour and demo, and I receive new clothes each month to review.
Because Reebok is THE brand of Crossfit, it has been amazing. I've been able to meet some of the world's best Crossfitters, like Rich Froning and Julie Fouche . I've been mesmerized by the Games and simply taken over by the contagious spirit of the sport.
That being said, of course I want everyone I know to get involved. If you are in the DC-area, I'd recommend trying out Trident Crossfit. I've heard from many folks that this box is THE box to join in this area -- the professionalism and skill of the coaches is unmatched. I love the description of what people can expect when they sign up
With commitment and hard work you will achieve greater general fitness and a high degree of athleticism. We take an old-school approach emphasizing fundamental, functional movements with proper technique.
You will learn and get fit with ever-changing workouts that combine bodyweight exercises, weightlifting, and a huge variety of high-intensity drills that combine cardio and strength challenges at the appropriate level for each person. The stimulus provided is always varied and the results are dramatic. The atmosphere is one of support and camaraderie to anyone willing to put in the work.
I'll be writing about some of the awesome things we are doing at Trident as time goes on. It's not just about doing Crossfit classes 3-5 times a week. This box and this brand as a whole are dedicated to helping others , honoring America's military and seeking out the ways we can all be the very best people we can be.
Have I convinced you yet? DC folks -- talk to me if you have questions about Trident. Everyone else -- find your local box & sign up!
