I’ve always been one of those people who sort of pretended to be into fitness.
I’d go to the gym a couple times a week…or when time permitted.
Or I’d go on a run…when the weather was nice.
I’ve just never really been excited about working out even though I’ve always been excited about the concept of looking good and feeling strong.
I’ve now been doing CrossFit at RWS for about 4 or 5 months and I’ve never been more excited about working out.
Never in my life did I have the dedication to get up before work and get to the gym, but CrossFit has quickly become an obsession.
4 months and I’ve never felt more fit in my life.
Justin is a very relaxed and easy going coach.
He’ll push you to do your best, but there is no need to feel intimidated if you aren’t super fit to begin with and it’s incredible how quickly he can take you to another level of athletic performance.
I had never done an Olympic lift in my life and with Justin’s help I’m now lifting more and more weight each week and feeling great.
For those who are new to CrossFit, you have to know a few things going in.
Firstly, this is not at all a “regular” gym.
There are no elliptical machines or bench press machines.
You can’t just drop by for a quick 30 minutes of cardio and call it a day.
Every day is a different class and there are certain hours that classes begin.
While everyone at the gym is at a different level of fitness, you still have a combined sense of camaraderie and competitiveness during each workout, pushing each other to do your best.
This gym has no showers, no towel service, and no mirrors for flexing your muscles.
What it has is one of the best forms of working out I’ve ever come across, a trainer who knows his stuff and is fun to work out with, a bunch of pullup bars, Olympic weights and an alley to run 400m dashes in, and a great group of people to help push you forward.
If you want to get fit, join CrossFit and RWS is definitely a great CrossFit gym to be a part of.
