I hate Crossfit

I hate Crossfit for taking away my excuses.

I hate Crossfit for showing me that I had the ability to get fit, but not the mental discipline to see it through.

I hate Crossfit for making me expect more than just mediocrity of the people I encounter.

But mostly I hate Crossfit because I'm 36 and I didn't know about it until I was 35.

Why do you hate Crossfit?

Re: I hate Crossfit

I am humbled by crossfit because I thought I was in shape

I am humbled by crossfit because my eyes have been opened to how weak I am.

I am humbled by crossfit because I see how far I have to go.

Re: I hate Crossfit

Crossfit made me realize that while I thought I was fit (from doing weight lifting) I wasn't actually fit

It showed me a new way of working out and gives me a real sense of community, even though I'm still very new

I love how the WODs are always different, compared to a workout program at a globo gym

I love being able to push myself beyond what I thought I could do.

I love the feeling of satisfaction I get after a WOD. It inspires me to keep coming back for the next day.

I agree with all but the last one hit home for me

Re: I hate Crossfit

I hate CrossFit because it put the word "try" back in my vocabulary.
