crossfit???
« on: February 08, 2014, 07:51:33 AM »
Does anyone here do crossfit?

My cousin in NY does it and he loves it and swears by it! And he says crossfit and paleo really go hand in hand.

Just curious if anyone here does it and what their experiences with it are?

I have my gym membership until april-ish...so I probably wont start until atleast late march because I want to actually get my moneys worth from this gym first.
But im very interested

I'd search our forum some, there are previous threads with Crossfit opinions/discussions.

I see a lot of bad form, and most "boxes" as they call them are pricey.  Any exercise program can go with Paleo really

Thanks! I did end up finding some threads after posting this. I think I will try it in a month or so. There are no contracts so I can just pay for a month and try it out so I think thats what ill do. I like the fact that it seems like an intense workout..and I like that its group classes because motivation is a big thing for me and I think working with other people will really help me

I will definitely be paying attention to what they ask me to do though. I pulled my back out a year ago at work (I work with dogs and 2 huge pits pulled me in two different directions and really messed me up) so I don't need to be doing anything thats going to aggravate it

So I had my trial class tonight and I loved it! Ive never had such an instense workout that was so short. That was awesome! The gym looks like a great place and the people all seem to be very knowledgeable.  They even includr a paleo nutrition guide in their fundamentals course. My trainer said almost everyone that works out there follows the paleo diet.

WIll definitely be going back once I use up a little more of my gym membership I have now
