I started crossfit like seriously 1st of May 2013.
Since then I lost about 35 lbs. my waist line was from 36 and now to 31-32. Shirt size from L-XL to S-M.
But the best thing I really gained from cf was restoring my health back. At time I started CF I was taking 2 blood pressure medications and cholesterol pills due to the fact that my BP was 180/100 without meds, 160/90 with meds. My internist told me I have to take my meds FOR LIFE which was totally devastating! Currently my BP runs between 105-110/60-70 and without meds. Am not taking cholesterol pills either, it is within normal range on my last check up about 3 weeks ago.
The thing I love the most about CF is I’m getting to know what I can do and most capable off. It has really opened a door of opportunity for me to get to know myself a little bit better and witness not only the physical aspect of growth but mental and psychological as well. It is a very smart approach to fitness and development, where you are really bound to dig deep and pull out the best in you every WOD knowing that you are competing not against others but yourself.
I have NEVER worked out so hard in my life since I’d been doing CF. After all the bumps, bruises, soreness, pain and injuries I can definitely say: IT IS ALL WORTH IT and I WILL DO IT AGAIN…. And AGAIN!
