As with most people in America, I decided to improve my fitness with the new year. I had a lot of different motivations that drove me to start. First of which was physical looks. I have always and probably always will be considered skinny. Now I don’t hate this fact and too be honest a lot of times I am grateful for it. Still I am a bit self-conscious about and wanted to put on a bit more “healthy” mass.
The second reason why I decided to work on my fitness was so I can do things. I’ve always been the type of person to enjoy adventures and challenges, but my body hasn’t been able to keep up with my desires. One of my major goals is to run a marathon….I will run a marathon…eventually. To do this, I’ll need my body at peak physical shape.
Now this is not my first foray into personal fitness. I’ve tried going to gym a couple of times in the past, all with no avail. I decided to do things a bit differently this time and chose crossfit. I’ve heard it was a great way to get fit and that the community aspect made things a whole lot better.
I’ve gone for a couple of months now and can say without a doubt that it is awesome. I really do think that the community of crossfit has made things a lot more fun than just going to the gym. The competitive nature of it also goes along with my personality. I hope one of these I’ll be able to post a before/after photo and have everyone comment on how jacked I look, but seriously I’m just excited for the prospect of living life harder, better, faster, stronger!
