Have you ever heard of Crossfit? I hear people rave about it all the time, and I’ve seen some pretty convincing transformations in people I know who have done it.
I’ve looked into it myself a few times, but the price always turns me off of it. It’s definitely more than your average gym membership fees. But then last week, I was walking back to my desk from a meeting when a flyer in the hallway caught my eye…
“FREE CROSSFIT TRIAL”
Aw yeah, baby. The very best time to try something out is when it’s free. The flyer said Crossfit will bring all necessary equipment (barbells and the like) to the premises, and all you have to do is show up in sneakers and workout clothes. It’s during lunch this week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. I’m planning to get in all three days. When the trial is over, they’ll discuss contracts and pricing, and if I like it as much as I think I will, I just might sign up.
One not-so-fun thing I have to deal with after having lost weight is my upper arms. What was once just chubs is now loose skin that would look much better it it was firmed up by some muscle. Same with my legs. And bohiney. And, well… kind of everything. Running has been great, but it doesn’t do much for me in the way of forming and building muscles. Not for my upper body anyway.
What do you think of Crossfit? Have you done it? Do you think it’s worth the $$$?
