Big Kid At Heart


I like to play.  I’m a big kid.  I could play almost any competitive group activity for hours.

I think that’s one of the reasons I have enjoyed CrossFit so much these past few months.

I also enjoy working out, and trying to improve my fitness.  With CrossFit, I get to do that while hanging out with a bunch of people who want to do the same thing.

My first shot at CrossFit wasn’t successful, having quit after only a month.  Looking back, I think I allowed myself to be intimidated by my lack of ability, and I definitely didn’t take advantage of the social support offered by the group at Friction.

I realize now that was a huge mistake.

I love the workouts, but it’s how awesome everyone is at Friction that gets me excited to come to the box.  The only issue I have now is that I can’t make it there every day!

Weightlifting Thursday: Gear

“Ideally, with this equipment we are using it once we get close to a competition or scheduled max out in order for us to get used to that gear and what it does to our body. We are trying to peak at the right time with our strength and have all aspects dialed in. ” -Coach Mike
