Ok...time to be semi-serious!
Has anyone ever heard of Crossfit or done Crossfit?!
I'm kind of curious and am thinking of trying it!

A little about Crossfit (via)

What is CrossFit?

What It Is

CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.

What It Isn’t

It isn’t elitist. The Crossfit program is universally scalable, which means anyone and everyone can do it. The needs of our Olympic athletes and grandparents differ by degree, not kind. Our special operations soldiers and sailors, mountain bikers, skiers, housewives, and high school athletes have all found their best fitness from the same regimen.

  1. I've got some friends that are cross-fit junkies & love it! I really want to try it & I've heard that it's great since it's short, but certain personality types (ie very competitive) tend to enjoy it more.

  2. My best friend is a Cross-Fit nut!! She does tons of competitions and lives it! It seems a little crazy to me--I tried it but couldn't get into it. But that's just me! :)

  3. Saw your tweet and came over to comment! I just started CF in January and LOVE it. It's SUCH a great workout. And honestly, I don't compete with anyone or even for time. I want to have a good time and I don't want to finish last, but it's more important to me to just finish. You feel SUCH a sense of accomplishment! And I've noticed results..fast. I went into it thinking I'll never be the CF junkie that some people are. I just don't want to go that much. I see it as a good workout twice a week, even though it almost kills me.. haha..

    I dont know how to explain it, but it's just a really cool workout. At our gym, they warm us up, then spend 15-20 min showing us the daily exercises and making sure we can all do them. Then, they count us down and say GO! And it's all on us. I LOVE that. I love knowing exactly what I have to get done and it's on me whether I do or don't. And everyone is working out at their own level. Me? I might have 15lb weights. The guy next to me might have 40lb weights. It's all about pushing yourself at whatever level you're at. When I started, I regularly asked the trainers "What weight should I do? I'm new and I can't do the heavier weights." And they'd help me. Now, I know what I should be using for most of the workouts.

    And there are tons of modifications. Example: I can't do a handstand..or a handstand pushup. So, I do a modified pushup to help strenthen my shoulders for a future handstand sometime.

    I'm rambling, but I say give it a shot. And if you don't like one gym, try another. It's all about finding your comfort zone. Most of them have a "green ramp" program. I'd do that to get a feel for what it's like. At green ramp, they do the baseline workout for all Crossfit. :)

    Sorry for the novel,but I just really like CF and think others would too!

  12. I'm currently doing crossfit! I've done 3 classes so far. I like it a lot, but I don't like the lifting portion of it. Just because everyone is at different stages and it's hard to really get a workout in while waiting around. I like the cardio intervals they do and for the most part I would def recommend trying it!
