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 🙂

CrossFit and biking

August 24, 2009

I’ve been biking to work about 3 days a week for a good couple of months now. It started off as a way to help get back into shape and also trying to further cut my carbon foot print. What I didn’t expect is that it’s turned into the perfect way to transition from home life to work and then back to home life again. I do an 8.5 Km commute to work and it took me 30 minutes each way when I start. It’s only taking me 20 minutes now and it’s by far the best way to clear my head each day. I actually miss the ride on the days when I have to take my car to work.

So… feeling like I’m in better shape and having decided that the gym really isn’t for me (routine bores me, and that’s usually what I find at the gym), I decide, on my brother’s advice, to join CrossFit Kitchener. You can read all about it on the site, but the main idea is to have an intense workout each day and have that workout be different each day so that there is no routine. The workouts have been kicking my ass… I seriously didn’t think I could physically sweat as much as I did during my workout, but I can’t wait to go back for more 🙂

The first visit is always free, so come on out and give it a try if you’re tired of the old gym routine (and if you’re not from Kitchener, just Google CrossFit for your town).
