“Let me tell you about Crossfit!” For one year I’ve been doing Crossfit and I love it.  I started Crossfit October last year after some of my friends started at another gym.  For months I had been trying all kinds of diets and home video programs and none of them were able to keep me on track.  I was 21 years old, weighed about 250, and couldn’t run more than a block without getting winded.

I decided to finally give Crossfit a chance.  My first class had runs, push-ups, and ended with a squat tabata.  I was sore for days, but I had found what I needed. Crossfit gave me structure, the attention I needed, and the great positive atmosphere to push me.  As the months passed, I started getting better and better.  Coaches Katie and Charlie helped to push me past limits I thought would destroy me.  My first front squats barely passed 100 lbs., and just recently I passed 300 lbs!!

Now one year later, I’m in the best shape of my life.  I have the confidence to finally tear off my shirts.  At least once a week I run into someone who asks me how I lost so much weight.  I simply respond Crossfit and never giving up! The butterball is gone and beast mode is here to stay!

 

 

Double Unders – Coach Lori

There’s are few things more frustrating than seeing DOUBLE UNDERS in a WOD and not feeling confident in your abilities.  Jumping rope, and Double Unders in particular, are a test of agility, coordination, timing and conditioning.  There are a variety of factors that go into successful, UNBROKEN double unders such as rope length, consistency in jump, and wrist turnover.

The link below is a great resource for improving your Double Unders.  Take the time to watch these videos and practice the techniques discussed!   There are even a few suggested Double Under workouts for you to use to improve your skill if you are somewhat of a Double Under master!

Get to jumping!

How’s Your Performance? – Coach Katie

Read up ladies and gentlemen! I found this great blog post a week back that I thought would be great to share with all of you.  Just something to think about next time you’re giving yourself a hard time about your body image.  Try changing things up and focus more on your performance and how your feeling rather than how you look.
