Rest

Check out the new testimonial from Kathy.  She and Larry are doing a great job.  They are awesome members of the TitanFit Family.  Thanks Kathy!

It took several days of my husband’s convincing for me to try this thing called CrossFit.  After Googling several sites and watching several YouTube videos, I knew for sure that I could never do something like that!  But after a few days of him telling me how he really thought this is what we both needed, I agreed to go to try it with him.  We were both a little nervous going in the first night, but as soon as we walked into TitanFit, we were greeted by Herb who immediately began introducing us to other members.  I have never walked into a gym before and had such a feeling of family and friends so quickly!

We did the baseline the first night and I couldn’t believe how out of shape I was and I had even been “working out” three times a week for several months prior to that night.  I remember while doing some of the basics watching the other female members doing dead lifts and thinking I have never lifted a bar in my life and what in the heck did I get myself into.  That first night I couldn’t do more than 20 air squats.  My husband was totally into it and couldn’t wait to go back the next night.  I agreed to keep going just because I thought everyone was so nice and at least it wasn’t as intimidating as I thought it would be.  I’m so glad we did!  Three months later, I am deadlifting more than what I weigh and I have done workouts that consisted over 100 air squats!

For the first time in my life, I now know what being fit is.  I am a 45 year old mother of three boys and I was never involved in any high school sports – I just liked to watch them!  Herb has been great at pushing me and knowing just how much I can do even if I don’t think I can.  Each week, I’m amazed at how far I have progressed and I can’t wait to see how far I can go!  I’m so glad my husband convinced me to go to TitanFit with him!

  1. Great to see you’re enjoying it, Kathy. We’re glad to have both of you guys. How about Larry getting 38 reps on Games WOD 12.2 the other day!?

    Kirk and I did a medium-length chipper today:

    Run 800, 15 overhead squats (135), 45 double-unders, 45 deadlifts (135), 45 double-unders, 15 overhead squats (135), run 800

    16:52 – This one was brutal on the low back and hamstrings. I haven’t run so slow in a WOD since Murph a year ago. Good one though. Now time to rest up for 12.3 on Thursday.
