"My self-conscious side thought people would smirk at my poor upper body strength, and my gazelle-like arms couldn't even manage one pull-up. I was sure my fitness had peaked several years ago and it was only downhill from there."Who didn't think this when you first walked into a Crossfit Gym or "Box" as they are called.
For all of the skeptics out there, please read this article. You may understand a tad more why Crossfit is called "The Sport of Fitness" and why it's participants are a bit fanatical in their devotion to the sport.
The Now Of Crossfit
"What is difficult for an outsider to see is that these people just went to a place inside the box, and themselves, that isn't accessible to them at any other point in their day. The physical intensity of the workout gave them no choice but to draw their attention inward -- to the now. In the now, or the present moment, the mind experiences a much needed gift of rest."
