Working on my fitness!

After nearly a month of talking about it, I finally went to a crossfit class at a local crossfit gym.  They offer a free session for first-timers, so my friend and I decided to go.  I was nervous from the moment I got there, and being around so many people who are in-shape was so intimidating.  But I can honestly say that crossfit was the best, most intense workout of my life.  Everyone there was so helpful, and I was never yelled at for not being able to do something.  The trainer was always helping us get things right, and he encouraged us instead of putting us down.  I left the crossfit session feeling pushed to my limit and determined...and extremely sore.

We went there with the intentions of signing up for a membership, but after seeing the price, I couldn't do it.  For three months, it would have cost me nearly $500.  And as amazing as it was, I can't bring myself to pay that...not with the fact that I'll be living on my own in six months and paying for grad school.  It was a huge disappointment for me because I really wanted to continue this.

So now I have to look for alternatives because the FGCU fitness center just isn't cutting it for me.  I'm not motivated to go and they don't offer enough fitness classes.  I know that if I pay for something, I'll use it.  So I'm looking at LA Fitness.  They offer some intense classes and it's not far from FGCU.  

I don't know what's next, but after doing crossfit today I'm ready to step up my game.  The old routine of walking on a treadmill and lifting some weights just won't cut it anymore.  Not after that.  I just hope something can compare...because crossfit is amazing.
