Let's WOD it up!

Let's WOD it up!

Getting healthy is the hardest choice for people to make...especially for women. Now, more than ever our lives are pulled in many, stress, family, friends and work all take up most of our time. Exercise still seems to be a mans world, unless you are talking about yoga or an aerobics class. Walk into any gym and it is mostly men in the free weight area. Before I found this new craze called "CROSS FIT" I would go to the gym, get a 30 minute run in and then head to the weight room for about 45 minutes. Most of the time dreading getting to the gym, dreading the run, dreading the weights, but two hours later glad I did it. Who has that kind of time to work out? Even as a personal trainer I found it hard to find the time, but did because it's my job.

In "CROSS FIT" we do a new workout everyday. This keeps the body from hitting a plateau, but also keeps it fun. Keeping up with a workout routine is hard enough, keeping it enjoyable is the key. This is a huge reason why "Cross Fit" is so popular with women.

EXPECTATIONS: Yes, you will move weight quickly. It is part of being able to carry groceries, pick up kids, and preform the everyday functions of life. There is no whining...ok, well maybe a little. The trainers want you to curse their names. They don't care if it hurts as long as you have good form and are not injuring yourself.  No gloves allowed. In real life you do not put on gloves before lifting a box or your kids. Leave the pink gloves at home! You get dirty, sweaty, and messy hair. You will get leaner, faster and stronger but it is a progress. Try it for 90 days before deciding if it's for you. One WOD (Workout Of the Day) is not enough to decide if you like it. You will not have to spend hours in the gym anymore to get results!!
