8 Reasons Boomers Should Try CrossFit

Each one of the eight reasons resonates with me as true. I hear all the time that people need to get in shape before they try CrossFit. That is such b.s. — come as you are and follow the program.  I tell the newer, more out of shape athletes to just show up and MOVE your body. That’s it — MOVE. MOVE. MOVE! The other benefits will follow but you are required to show up!

I was looking forward to today’s workout for a few reasons —

  1. it wasn’t a super heavy weight and
  • it was a met con (under 10m)

The combo of those means that most likely I could kick ass instead of struggle with each workout.  I like the struggle but sometimes you need a win. That one workout where you just go all at it, you feel like you can conquer the world and you finish strong! Today was my day for that!

Pull UpsOf course I have the hands to prove it!  I feel strong today! I needed it badly after this week of emotional ups and downs.
