Before CrossFit I was playing baseball and doing the stereotypical globo-gym workouts, hitting legs on one day, chest on another, and blah, blah, blah. I was also teaching spin classes to “get my cardio and lean out.”
Then, about five years ago I got into CrossFit when I saw people at my gym doing what looked like a hard workout. I asked if I could work out with them and nearly passed out during my first WOD! I’ve stuck with it though and am now a coach at Brick New York. I’m in the best shape of my life. I am more flexible, stronger, and my overall health has never been better.
Safety First: Always chose a weight with which you can complete the workout with proper form. If the workout is meant to be a fast one, make sure you scale your weights. Otherwise you won’t get the results you want and you’ll wind up getting hurt.
