Now, if that doesn’t sound appealing to you, then here’s my suggestion: STAY ON THE COUCH.
A facebook post turned blog post -Here’s a little insight from our member Tim Close (I hope he doesn’t mind) What do YOU think?
I started doing CrossFit about three months ago. I truly enjoy it. I read about it and watch videos to learn how to do stuff better. it’s my exercise program sure, but i’d also say that it’s my sport now. Suffice to say I’ve gotten a lot stronger and can now do things that three months ago weren’t even in the picture. I feel better, sleep better, clothes fit better…it’s all good.
Lately there has been a TON of media about CrossFit – some good, but a lot saying how bad it is and how people get hurt. I just read another story about how more people get hurt doing CrossFit and therefore quit. blah, blah, blah.
Here’s a really simple solution to all of this. If you want to transform mind and body and you’re willing to WORK HARD, then you should give CrossFit a try. It’s really remarkable and a lot of fun. You’ll see some amazing things happen to your body in a relatively short period of time. but make no mistake, you’ll WORK for it to happen. no pills, no magic juice, no needles. just WORK.
Now, if that doesn’t sound appealing to you, then here’s my suggestion: STAY ON THE COUCH. Nobody’s telling you that you have to do CrossFit, or to write blog posts, stories, videos and endless crap about how you think it’s bad. I’m writing a mini blog post about it being good and therefore kind of violating my own recommendation, but that doesn’t suit my purposes at all so therefore i’m giving myself a pass.
End of story (aka obnoxious rant). and, yes i guess this now means that i’m “one of those crossfit people.” that’s a tag i’m more than ok with.
