I have always been an active, athletic person. I have tried for so long to like running and going to the gym. I would show up, chat with my friends, look at the clock and realize I had things to do (or things I'd rather do) and literally would leave the gym without breaking a sweat and sometimes not even lifting a finger! Playing soccer a bit or shooting around with my boys just wasn't cutting it. I could not find something that made me WANT to exercise regularly. I convinced myself that if a sport or ball wasn't involved, I wasn't interested...and then I learned of Crossfit.
I drove past the box everyday for a month and one morning decided to pull in the parking lot. After one session I was hooked. Was it the personal attention? The array of people at different physical levels? The varied physical challenges? The idea of banging out a killer work-out in a short time? The exciting atmosphere and camaraderie? Yes, yes and yes!
What I didn't realize was how well it would make me feel and how much stronger I would become. The one constant in my personal battle with MS is fatigue. It is not a 'normal' fatigue. It is not just a tired feeling. It is such an overwhelming, uncomfortable feeling that feels to be in my soul. It is by far my strongest challenge. Since starting Crossfit in December, my overall energy is greater, I feel healthier and my strength has reached a level I never would have thought. Like everyone, some days for me are better than others but the loud music, encouraging smiles and support of the coaches get me through my WOD.
I really never 'got' people who liked to work-out....until now. I think I am becoming one.
