All of these things should be running through your mind as you get ready for your workout. Each day should push you in a difference way, but you should be able to leave the box knowing you gave it your full effort and performed the WOD with the prescribed intensity. Through this, you'll see consistent, quality improvements in your fitness and body composition.
One of the best aspects of CrossFit is its unbelievable potency as a fitness program. If you are able to do the workouts as intended, you will find a level of intensity that most find to be a mix of pain, adrenaline, and unrivaled sense of accomplishment.
I am 37 years old, in the best shape of my life, and now know that I can continue to get stronger and healthier as I age. Never until this point in my life, and with the support of CrossFit, have I become comfortable and proud of being muscular – something I struggled with as a teen. I’m thrilled to see more and more young girls embracing their strength instead of “feeling like a man” because they are strong.
I had done P90X, martial arts, and long-distance running, yet I have never seen such a transformation in my abilities as I have with CrossFit. I intend to continue on for as long as I can, which at this point, I’m hoping will be around 104 years old.
CrossFit 925 has impacted my life in many different ways. I still get overwhelmed at how different my life is as compared to 20 years ago. I’m physically stronger and I’m happier than I’ve ever been. I found motivated athletes – students, nurses, firemen, housewives, professionals, people of all ages – with whom I share goals, passions and values. I bonded with most of them and some of these people are becoming real and solid friends.
