When I started CrossFit, I was terrified that I would feel like a loser and wouldn’t be able to do anything. If you’ve tried CrossFit, you know that nothing could be further from the truth…
“No matter how heavy or light your load is during a WOD, we get it. No matter how fast or slow your time is, we get it. We all just suffered through the same grueling WOD.”
“I just want people to look at me and see it’s not just the Fronings of the world that can do this … it’s everyday people.”
CrossFit is like any other sport or fitness methodology—we practice it, we prepare for it AND we accept the fact that it carries a risk of injury—as does running, weightlifting, bodybuilding, basketball, etc. There are, however, many things we can do to keep ourselves injury-free. Consider this a checklist to start with.
