It’s a Crossfit Life

I have been a member of Crossfit St. Paul/St. Louis Park now for close to 3 months! In that short amount of time I have become hooked on the Crossfit program and have found that it has been the most effective way for me to keep coming back to the gym. On top of this membership I find myself a part of a company called Apex Fun Run (which I’m stoked about) that has me promoting fitness and leadership to Minnesota’s young future leaders. While this isn’t a part of my job I feel obligated to get myself into the kind of shape that is an excellent example for what I am going to be talking about and preaching in my day to day life. I thought what a better way to do that than to publicly display (not for any narcissistic reasoning) what I am doing to stay fit and stay healthy. More than anything I’m hoping to keep myself honest!

In this portion of my blog I’ll be posting my workouts, my goals, and my achievements along with discussing what I see as benefits to Crossfit as I progress farther into it! Crossfit for the time being is my focus, my main source of exercise, but at some point I plan to branch out and find other ways to build on top of that foundation. For those of you reading this I also hope to somehow encourage everyone around me to find the place and the way for them to lead a healthier lifestyle. For me this isn’t really about losing weight… although who doesn’t want rock hard abs? This is about being a healthy happy human being. This is about living the “Yeah I can do that” lifestyle where you aren’t limited by all those reps you’re doing between the couch and the fridge. I’d love to create a conversation so if you have any thoughts or opinions on Crossfit, what helps you stay active, or anything else(related please) comment below!
