CrossFit is one of the ways I am trying to get this body ready for my 2012 trek. The gym I started at has dissected and I will be at the grand opening of CrossFit Max Effort today for a workout, to take pictures and to eat some great Paleo food. The owners of Max Effort are Zach and Lindsay. Both total wonderful people and they will push me where I cannot get myself to understand that I can go. So today is going to be GREAT!
It will be hard work and that is what gives the payoff. After my Colorado River paddle of two days ago, my shoulders are still a bit sore, but I am sure that more work, not less, is exactly what they need. Today’s workout is Deadlifts, Burpees and Pullups. Not a bad way to get back into the game!
A new phase of my trek prep has been underway for about 2 weeks. I have joined Las Vegas CrossFit (which is now CrossFit Max Effort) in an effort to break through this fitness issue I have been facing, I got a personal trainer at the gm and he and I have been hard at if for 6 sessions. It is hard, hard work. A different concept than anything I have done in fitness before. It is fast and intense and the goal is to improve. Again. Faster. Improve. There are no gym heads here that give off the BARBIE ONLY, IN MY GYM crap at the gyms I have tried over the decades. Just a desire to work and improve individually. I will begin the class sessions after two more with Vili. I am PUMPED!
