I love hearing stories like this, thank you for sharing Aaron:
So far, I’ve lost 15-20lbs (now 190lbs – down from 205-210 when I started). I believe I’ve got another 15lbs to lose. More important, although I still have much more to do, I’ve begun to feel pretty healthy and as though I’m at least beginning to be in shape. When I first started Crossfit, I was so out of shape that I frequently worried that I wasn’t capable of finishing the workouts. My heart would pound, I couldn’t get air and I would be thinking to myself, “this one may actually kill me!” Although I still find some of the workouts very challenging and I’m not breaking any records, I’m fit enough to know that I can complete them if I just keep moving and don’t give up. The best/worst example is the 12 Days of Crossfit workout we did around Christmas. It took me more than 38 minutes to complete – several minutes longer than anyone else in the class. I was embarrassed by this – but also proud that I hadn’t given up.
I absolutely think that Crossfit is awful – but I love it.
