I’ve always wanted to try a Crossfit workout, but there hasn’t been a workout box (fancy crossfit term for gym) close to my house.
The Reebok Crossfit of Uptown Charlotte is right across the street from my hotel, so I decided to check it out this morning.
They were super accommodating and modified the workout for a few of us who is new. Here’s what I did:
- Push-ups, jump squats and a few other body weight exercises to warm up
- Ran one mile, which was four laps around the building
- 50 air squats
- 25 burpees
I loved the feeling of pushing against myself to complete the workout and the encouragement of others this morning. It also was good to have someone watching my form to make sure I was doing everything correctly.
I’m definitely going to be investigating my options for Crossfit in Dayton.
