I recently got the chance to take a Crossfit class with my in real life friend Jamie.
It was all sorts of awesome. Our WOD included 3 rounds of:
- 1 running lap around building (about 1/4 mile)
- 25 pull ups
- 25 push ups
- 25 sit ups
- 25 squats
The pull-ups killed me. As I looked around and saw others just cranking them out, I admit I felt like I sucked.
Other than that, it was great!! After spending the past 18 months working out at home alone it was SO NICE to be back in a group fitness environment.
I wore my awesome outfit from Reebok and looked “official”! :) (some of their stuff is on a great sale right now, don’t miss out!)
While I did love the class and the WOD, I am not sure that Crossfit is the workout plan for me. My upper body was so sore the next day from so many push ups and pull ups that it hindered my workout schedule for several days. I like more of a “mix”, but maybe I’m judging too quickly based on one class?
What do you think? Do you Crossfit?

Disclosure: Reebok sent me the awesome outfit which I love and bought more of with my own money. I was not paid for this post. All opinions and sore muscles are my own.
