That was a little over a year ago, when I couldn't even run a minute without stopping. I had never lifted any kind of weights and I was sure my body wasn't made to jump up onto a tall box. Since then, I can run 1.2 miles without stopping (which is HUGE for me!). I can complete a WOD (workout of the day) using a 24in. box and I am lifting weights like crazy! Not little baby weights, heavy barbells. Oh, and I LOVE IT!
In January, Joe and Erin got to open up a brand new gym in a beautiful location. If you can't tell, its called Show Me Crossfit. I have also gotten the opportunity to visit another Crossfit gym with my coaches for a Memorial Day WOD. Crossfit is such a community and everyone is so welcoming!
This is a little video Coach Joe took of me when we were doing the Snatch. It looks pretty easy, but let me assure you getting that bar up over your head and then squatting it down while maintaining stability it tough. This is my favorite movement! You really should try it! With proper coaching of course! ...and Joe is reminding me to shrug.
I am beyond thankful that God brought Crossfit into my life. I can't imagine it without my Coaches and my Crossfit family. If you are looking for a push, here it is. Research and find your local Crossfit box. Teachers have to have an outlet! If you are from Missouri, message me and I would love to tell you about my Crossfit Box!
Stayed tuned for more info about my transition to That Teaching Spark! There is a huge giveaway coming!
What do you do to workout? I would love to know!
