I’ve always been into lifting, but I never got as much out of it as I should have. When I was younger, I even screwed up my shoulder trying to bench way more weight than I should have. It’s still messed up to this day.
But after working with a trainer, I was getting more on track. Then, a couple of years ago, he started his own CrossFit gym and told me I needed to be doing the workout. I couldn’t believe how exhausted I would get in 15 minutes. I thought I was in good shape, but these workouts took it to a new level.
I’m still never the first one done at any exercises in my gym, but I’m in the best shape I’ve been since high school. I’ve gained muscle while shedding body fat, and it fits my lifestyle. I like something where I can go all out for 15 or 20 minutes a day and I know I’m set.
Plus, my shoulder mobility has greatly improved since starting CrossFit. It works joint muscles I didn’t even know I had, but allows me to tailor my workouts so I don’t ever put my shoulder in a bad position.
Find the Right Gym: Visit a couple of gyms before you pick one. I’ve been lucky to have a great trainer I can trust, but not everyone gets that. Make sure your gym’s trainers are knowledgeable, well trained, and that you can get a lot of one-on-one with them. That’s what you need to get the most out of your workout.
