It is now November. And very soon, the Holiday Season and all that that entails and then before we know it, it will be the New Year and all that that entails. Imagine: we feel the holiday excesses in places where it shouldn’t be so we make a promise that we will feel better about ourselves when we start our new fitness and nutrition regime. Hmm! That New Year’s Resolution.

I know I am generalizing but many NY resolutions peter out after the first month or so. Why? Maybe because going to a regular gym, working on our own nutrition plan and trying to figure out what will really benefit us is all rather overwhelming. And boring. And mostly done on our own. And of course, we can’t possibly try CrossFit. We know what that is; we’ve seen it on TV. All muscle, huge weights and excessive workouts.

Yes you are correct. That is part of CrossFit. A tiny, tiny part. Most of the people who go to a CrossFit gym are just like you and me. The ones who like a cookie or a piece of cake. Maybe a glass of wine or a beer. We have to make an hour a day to devote to our workout because we have family commitments, jobs, nutrition needs, and other stuff that take up the other 23 hours of the day. Because we only have an hour, we don’t have time to figure out what to do at the gym. We need to get in, get done and get out the door. And get the most return for our 60 min.

So let’s try this again. Should I try CrossFit? What is CrossFit? It is a name, a trademark. It’s a philosophy, a methodology. It’s a community of like-minded and supportive people. It becomes a life-style. It’s not a competition of who can lift the most weight or who can move the fastest. It is ordinary people doing extraordinary things. It is a program that helps and guides us to a more healthful way of living through movement, nutrition, socialization, community support and just feeling better about ourselves in general. And, the coach tells us what to do, and how and when to do it.

So, should you try CrossFit?
