Hi, I'm Tina!

I’ve partnered with Harvard Pilgrim on this sponsored post, but the thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. You can find more ways to be well at

For the final part of the “Well-Together Challenge,” Sarah and I took a CrossFit class together, so I could share my love for the “sport of fitness” with her. Sarah had taken intro sessions, but never a real CrossFit class, so I was excited to see what she thought. The WOD ended up being one of “The Girls,” so it was a great class for her to attend!

The class started with a warm-up of 10-second Hollow Holds (Hollow Rocks minus the rocking), Supermans, and Planks mixed with a couple of 500 meter rows. We were good and warm after that warm-up!

For the next part of class, we worked on handstand progressions. When it comes to handstands against a wall, I’m a pro. I can hang out there all day long. But, when it comes to real (unsupported) handstands, I’m a joke.

I get nervous and can’t find the courage to kick-up my legs. It’s like my mind prevents my body from doing what I want it to do. Thankfully, I had kind, understanding, and patient friends in class, so they helped me through it.

Success! And when they let go of my legs, I stayed there for approximately 2 seconds. Haha! Handstands are definitely a GOAT for me!

I wish I had snapped a pic of Sarah doing handstands because she was awesome at them. She wasn’t scared at all and could even walk on her hands for awhile!


After some handstand fun, it was time for the WOD, which was “Annie.”



Double Unders

Abmat Sit-ups

For this WOD, you start with 50 Double Unders and then immediately do 50 Sit-ups. Then, the reps drop down to 40, so you do 40 Double Unders and 40 Sit-ups. The reps continue to drop to 30, 20, and 10 for the Double Unders and Sit-ups.

Sarah in action!

I finished Annie in 6:41, which is almost 4 minutes faster than my previous Annie time, and I did Double Unders this time, so it was a HUGE improvement for me!

CrossFit was our last activity for the “Well-Together Challenge.” Being paired up with a friend made it that much easier (and FUN) to try new things. In case you missed our previous adventures, here they are:

Question of the Day

How often do you try new fitness activities/workouts? What was the last new thing you tried? Can you do a handstand?
