Commit to Crossfit?
Hmmmm…I know this is totally random…ok maybe not…but I am seriously thinking of starting Crossfit while I am in London. Probably not the most economical decision but I just found out that there’s a Crossfit gym like 30 sec away from my apartment! I found it on my run yesterday, which by the way, was gorgeous! I ran along a little river and I ended up seeing a floating festival!
Pretty huh? See why I like running every time I visit a new city? You get to see everything in fast motion AND you burn calories. I mean seriously. Why doesn’t everyone do it!??? That’s gonna be my travel tip of the century.
Anyway! Crossfit. I’ve heard so much about it and I’ve been soooooo curious. Kinda the same curiosity I had with the bikini competition. I’m scared and I can’t really do pullups but I do hear they do lots of box jumps and I’m pretty good at that…so I think I should be fine…
For those of you who do not know what Crossfit is, it is basically lots of weight lifting, plyometrics, gymnastics, and functional movements done in a timed setting with the goal of beating your personal record each time.
I’m basically writing this blog post to decide whether or not I should commit to 2.5 weeks of crossfit.
You know what.
I’m signing up for a 1 month membership.
I already looked. It’s £95 for 14 drop ins.
Okay I’m doing it. I’m doing it!!!
And you know what? I hear that real crossfitters, like crazy religious ones, follow a paleo diet too. And umm, as of right now I will also do that!
I don’t know if I will write up a meal plan but I will do research and give you all the tools you’ll need to devise your own plan. Basically think caveman style and no grains.
Wow ok. I feel a surge of nervous energy running up and down my spine. I’m gonna do this. It’s commitment time. Yes.
I think I will visit Buckingham Palace this weekend and film a Pippa butt workout or a Kate Middleton something something workout for you guys! What do you think? Any other London or Olympic themed workout ideas? Let me know in the comments below!
Love you guys!
