My Crossfit Experience

Years of IT work and college finally caught up to me. Having a desk job and being on a computer for the majority of the day defiantly doesn’t help your body. After realizing that I wasn’t nearly in shape as I was in high school when I played soccer, I decided to do something about it. I tried at home workout DVD’s like P90X, Insanity, and even P90X3. I found that I would only do days at a time and wouldn’t even finish the workouts most of the time. Between running a company, college, being an EMT, and now working on my house I didn’t have much time for working out. I needed something relatively short and something that would motivate me. There are several gyms in my area that I looked at it but an intense workout program called Crossfit caught my eye. Lucky for me I found one right in the same building as my company. After researching it a bit a coworker and I decided to give it a shot. Its intimidating going for the first time, especially knowing how out of shape you are but the instructors were great showing us everything and scaling the workouts down for us to start. I’ve been going to ADK Crossfit in South Glens Falls, NY. I would highly recommend it to anyone. The trainers Israel, Katie, and James are awesome and it’s a great group of people there. I started March 26th, 2014 and have been going every weekday so far. So I’m on day 17 and I feel great. I look forward to going every day. I find that knowing that I’m working out later I end up eating healthier. I also feel like I have more energy at the end of the day. I’ll post updates along the way with my progress but so far so good!
