3.) When did you start using CrossFit as an exercise program? When did I start CrossFit or when did I start taking CrossFit serious about a year ago. I originally came 3X a week but last year I really started taking it serious. I really wanted to take the next step once I entered the CrossFit Open last year. 14.1 workout was a 10 min amrap of 30 double-unders and 55lbs 15 power snatches. I only did 3 double-under the full 10 min. I felt defeated and physically and mentally exhausted. From that day and on I’ve been serious about CrossFit.
4.) What does CrossFit mean to you? Its being a part of a CrossFit program where your dedicating your time and understanding the value of what the coaches are programming. Understanding the value of getting stronger, long-term health benefits, continuous work. Its about finding your weakens and attacking them. Its about getting stronger, crushing your weakness. Finding the intensity deep inside and going hard. Maybe you have a different perception of CrossFit but that’s what’s amazing about CrossFit it can mean whatever you want it to be.
