|My new buddy in Nashville|
I was scared to try corssfit. When I saw pictures of people doing it online, or if I met people who did crossfit, they always seemed to be people who were more coordinated, strong, and intense than I was. I also wasn't a fan of the idea of being proselytized to about the paleo diet. But, the more I learned about our local Crossfit Pisgah program from Laura and Jess, the more I liked what I was hearing. Before I knew it I wanted to get "crossfit" too!
My opinion so far? The program lives up to and surpasses the hype. I love the theory of crossfit (helping make everyday life tasks easier), I love the structure (easy-to-digest mini workouts that you repeat in larger rotations so you can measure your progress), I love the workouts (varied, intense, fun, doable), and I love the coaches at Crossfit Pisgah (encouraging, knowledgeable, dedicated to good form, funny, personable). And if that doesn't convince you, crossfit is a great place to pick up hot single men and women. If I wasn't happily married, I'd be singles mixing that place up!
After two sessions I have felt more encouraged and more sore that I ever have from a gym workout before. This may be the resistance training that I can stick to. So look out world, Katie's getting a new, firmer butt!
And in other news, my back doctor appointment is tomorrow. Wish me luck!
