As I type this — every muscle in my body is SORE. But it’s #WorthIt.
With about 8 months to go until our wedding day, Bryant and I decided we needed a lifestyle change.
Before I ever started CrossFit, I had an idea of what I thought it was.
I thought I’d be judged for not being in shape. I thought girls wore short booty shorts and sports bras to show off their perfectly toned bodies. I thought that I’d feel intimidated. I thought that I’d feel stupid doing the exercises. I thought I wouldn’t be good enough or athletic enough. And so on.
Sure, I’d say I’m somewhat athletic (Bry would beg to differ) but I always felt scared to walk into a CrossFit gym for whatever reason.
Man… I was I wrong.
At Principia CrossFit, I’ve never once felt intimidated in the class. This gym is made up of people of all shapes and sizes and athletic levels. Any workout can be scaled to your fitness level. THANK GOD.
Plus, everyone is extremely encouraging, supportive and kind. You’ll feel welcome the first time you join a class.
Who knew that we’d been squatting or doing lunges the incorrect way for so many years?!
I’ve had knee pain in both my knees from many years playing select soccer growing up. So when I’d go to the gym to do squats or lunges — I couldn’t. My knee pain would be so bad that I couldn’t do more than 10 reps.
Through this class, we learned the proper techniques for lifting and I am so thankful for our coach Chris. Now, I don’t have knee pain when doing lunges or squats.
Heck — just the other day I did 60 squats in a row and had zero knee pain. #Score
It’s a small group setting and it’s a great way to meet people who are new to CrossFit and are at the same starting point you’re at. I highly recommend taking this class before diving straight into CrossFit (you can thank me later).
The Laws of Motion class is five one-hour sessions in a two week period.
Mitch, the owner and coach is not only super knowledgeable — but he gives you one-on-one attention and training almost every day. He’s the man.
I am now proud to say that I do CrossFit and I love it!
It’s worth every early morning — waking up at 5:30am to make it to the 6am class.
Because we both already see results. Not just physical results but mental and emotional results as well.
I’d love to meet you and show you the best CrossFit gym in the Treasure Valley.
