My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
CrossFit has completely changed the way I look at working out. Every workout used to be a grind before I started. I would dread going to the gym and doing the same stale workout (I was doing Stronglifts 5x5, but there was really no variety). After starting CrossFit, I've seen my endurance levels rise, and I'm starting to throw some serious weight around. I'm really proud of how far I've come in the last 9 months.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
Since starting CrossFit in June of 2012 I've seen massive improvements in my endurance, strength, flexibility and mobility. I'm really looking forward to seeing how much progress I'll have made when the Open rolls around again in 2014!
