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.
