In December 2011, I took my first ever CrossFit class, and I loved it almost immediately. Since then, I’ve grown to love it more and more. I honestly can’t imagine my life without CrossFit, so it often becomes the topic of blog posts. Here are some posts about my favorite way to workout!
I love that so many of you are interested in learning more about CrossFit. I’ve received a ton of questions from you guys over the past several months, so I decided to do a couple of Q & As on CNC. If I missed any of your questions, just leave a comment on this post, and I’ll do my best to respond!
In July 2012, I had the opportunity to attend the 2012 CrossFit Games on behalf of Reebok and GNC. It was an amazing opportunity and made me fall in love even more with the “sport of fitness.”
CrossFit has changed my life and it could change yours too, so here are five reasons why you should try it!
In the past several weeks, I’ve received a ton of questions from you guys asking for cheaper and at-home ideas for CrossFit. It seems that quite a few of you want to try it, but don’t live near a CrossFit location and/or don’t have the funds to afford a membership. With that said, here are a bunch of at-home and budget-friendly ways to get your CrossFit on!
CrossFit is the hot new workout right now, and like many other health and fitness enthusiasts, I wanted to see what it was all about. So, about a month ago I took my first CrossFit class—I loved it almost immediately. The culture and workout method really spoke to me, and I signed up for a membership that very same night.
A bunch of readers asked if I’ve seen changes in my body and physical abilities after three months of doing CrossFit. Here’s a post about the changes I experienced.
Apparently, running sneakers (like I wore for the first month of CrossFit) are the wrong type of shoes to wear for lifting weights. Here’s a post about what you should wear and why.
CrossFit really interferes with my running— not really my motivation to run, but my physical ability to actually do it. Typically, I’m too exhausted to run after a CrossFit workout, so I try to run before, but, sometimes, my body is just too tired from the previous day’s workout, so I skip my run all together. Here how I try to balance both workouts.
I had the opportunity to interview Bob Harper, and many of his responses included mentions of CrossFit! See what he has to say about it!
Bob Harper has been training at BRICK CrossFit in Los Angeles, where he has been rockin’ the WODs and absolutely loving it. So, when the folks, who represent both BRICK and Bob Harper’s Smart Success Products, contacted me, I was all about asking them for an interview. In this interview, Bob talks all about his love for CrossFit!
Mal and I created our own WOD and did it our basement. No CrossFit? No problem! We cleared some space, turned on some tunes, and got down to work.
Except for the last WOD in this post (which calls for a jump rope), these workouts don’t require any equipment and can pretty much be done anywhere. Mal and I just found some space near the track on the cruise ship and busted out the exercises.
Spectating the 2012 Northeast Regional CrossFit Games was a blast. It was a lively experience and there were a ton of fans cheering on fellow box members, family, friends, and their favorite athletes. I left feeling inspired, motivated, and ready to work hard at CrossFit!
I didn’t know what to expect going to CrossFit for the first time, but I loved it! Here’s a post about my first experience and intro session with CrossFit.
