Lets take a moment to talk about how AWESOME Crossfit is.
As I briefly mentioned here , I recently went to a Crossfit Class at Pure Fitness and joined a Crossfit 101 Class to learn the basics.
I have fallen in love.
I am not very strong, but man oh man, do I ever feel strong when I leave the class. So far we have reviewed the basics, Air Squats, Front Squats, Deadlifts, Pushups, Skipping, Box Jumps, Thrusters, and Cleans.
Well, I reached a goal that I had listed on my sidebar. I joined the Crossfit Gym! They offer Bike, Bootcamp, and Crossfit throughout the week, and I can go to unlimited classes for $80. SCORE. I am actually considering looking in to getting out of my other contract at Only Womens Fitness because I have a treadmill at home, and I don't like all of Spin Class teachers that they have. We shall see.
I do think Crossfit is the answer. It focuses on functional movements, a mixture between cardio and strength. It is intense, guided by a professional, and the classes are about an hour long. Not to mention, the people at Pure are SO welcoming and nice :)
In the mean time, I am planning on taking some before pictures to compare my guns now and later. I also need to revise my Marathon Training Plan to include Crossfit!
