Next time you see MJ in the box, give her a high-five.
I’ve been enjoying hiking and playing tennis but I haven’t done any exercise on regular basis for a long time before I started CrossFit. My husband started CrossFit before me and he recommended me to try it out. I thought it’s too much for me at first and hesitated. One day, a CrossFit box was opened super close to my place and I decided my mind to give it a try. Of course, it was really hard as expected, but I went to the box consistently, pretty much everyday for more than a year. Neither of us thought that I would enjoy it this much. The reason why I keep doing CrossFit despite of all the physical challenges was that after an hour intensive work out, I felt so refreshed. During the work out I was able to completely empty my thoughts, concerns, and worries, and be filled with good energy. I really like the super positive vibe in the box and people cheering each other. I feel like I won’t be able to work out alone anymore. After I moved to Boston, luckily I found KSCF and I’m enjoying working out here very much. My favorite movements are double unders, box jumps and clean. My least favorite is definitely wall balls – I often get hit by the ball on my face. My post WOD snack is either a banana or a boiled egg. Outside of CrossFit, I used to do woodworking for fun. I have built some furniture but I stopped it for now cause there is no more space to put more things in my place. I also play tennis sometimes, and I hope to go hiking soon. I haven’t gone for hiking since I moved to the U.S. My goals in the gym are to achieve 100 unbroken double unders, better rowing, and more PRs in my weight liftings.
