Crossfit Kitchener – Grand Opening

September 24, 2009

I’ve been doing Crossfit for almost a month now and I’m loving it. It definitely feels like the best workout I’ve ever done. The good people at Crossfit Kitchener are having their grand opening this coming Sat (Sep 26th, 2009) from 1 to 4 pm. Come out and see the memebers do the 300 workout (yes, the workout the actors did to get in shape for the movie).

While there, you can also take part in a free introductory workout.

Rumor has it, there might be a one day discount if you’d like to sign up 😉

See you there!


I gained 4lb

September 2, 2009

Stepped on the scale for the first time in over a week today… I gained 4lb! Not sure why, been eating really well and working out like crazy, I actually went down one belt notch! Am I gaining muscle??? 4lb seems a little excessive, although I’ve never worked out this hard in my life.

I think I’ll just put the scale aside, continue to work out and eat well and see if I notice any differences in the mirror and how my clothes fit.

I have to admit, with all of the intense working out, I’ve been feeling great, almost like being on a permenant high 🙂

100 Burpees in 100 days

September 1, 2009

I just signed up for the 100 burpee challange with crossfit Kitchener. The challange sounds pretty simple… Day one, you do one burpee, day two, you do two burpees and so on.

I think I’m more worried about getting past day 50. Doing 70 burpees is tough, but I have a feeling it’s even tougher when you know you have to do 71 the next day 😉

CrossFit “Helen”

August 26, 2009

Today was my first named WOD (Workout Of the Day). Helen, consists of 3 rounds for time each of:

  • 400 meter run
  • 21 Kettle Bell swings (I did 1 Pood, men’s Rx’d was 1.5 Pood)
  • 12 Pull Ups (I had to do mine box assisted)

My total time was 16 minutes on the nose, I’m hoping for 13 min next time 🙂
