At the very least it would give my girlfriends a good giggle over our next champagne catchup! You see the idea of me in a gym is like water and oil, they just don’t mix. cbd oil
I seem to lack the main two criteria of being allowed to set foot in a gym, fitness and co-ordination. But I am determined to see what all the fuss is about for myself and before I can talk myself out of it, I find the least threatening CrossFit gym in Sydney and I book in a consultation.
The first thing I noticed when I arrive for my appointment was the absence of those long rows of clunky cardio machines and menacing weight stations. I breathe a small sigh of relief, just the sight of those contraptions fills me with fear (flashback to an unfortunate incident involving me and a treadmill that I am yet to recover from). Let’s just say I do not have the necessary machinery skills to operate a toaster some days let alone operate the dashboard of what looks to me like an aeroplane navigation system. So I was pleased to see laid out on a huge black meat before me some basic pieces of fitness equipment that didn’t look like they could cause me an injury. The instructor who was showing me around went on to explain that the concept of CrossFit is simple, workouts are based on core, functional movements that are performed at the highest possible intensity.
This varies with each individual and the key to its success is its adaptability to everyone from an elite athlete to an office worker who hasn’t seen the inside of a gym for years. Programs are carefully designed with variety in mind so people don’t get bored, and all exercises are scaled to suit the various fitness levels in the class.
