HAPPY it’s over, happy and sad, happy to have completed it , happy I won’t be eager to wake up at 3-4 AM Friday mornings to check out the workouts, sad that we won’t get THAT thrill every Friday ..is it fear? is it excitement ? -
We all know that feeling before the countdown, before Lumi says 10,9,8 …GO!!
LUCKY and proud to be part of a nice, kind and supportive COMMUNITY.
PROUD of my little SISTER - Alina P.- and her ambition to achieve great results … such a commitment to redo 4 of the 5 workouts.
And last but not least GRATEFUL, that even after a somewhat recent hand injury and thanks to a great and patient coach Tanase Joe , I manage to complete the exercises safely.. some scaled some RX but still grateful I COULD DO IT!!
In the end I would like to leave you with one thought ... Pray that 20.5 will be a complete surprise ..NO Thrusters NO C2B ! “
We’re definitely praying for a different Last OPEN WOD next year!!
PS- great photo by Adrian C. during #19point3 ( the WOD that made us very anxious
When I was in school I skipped sport classes because I hated them. I completely avoided all sports. This is the longest relationship I’ve had with a gym! Today, people rarely work toward future improvements and I am no exception. But, in addition to the long-term benefits, Replay gives me instant rewards, too. Everybody wants the long-term benefits of CrossFit, but that is not what keeps me coming to the Box almost every day. What keeps me committed is the way I feel every time I come to Replay CrossFit. When I am in the Box and I listen to the Coach teaching me something new, I feel like a child: curious, trying to understand, attempting to learn. When I train I forget I have a job, tasks, chores, other roles in society. For one long moment, I am the sole inhabitant of my body and my mind and there is nothing more important than being my best self, physically and mentally. And when I finish training I feel like I did the best thing I could ever do with my time. When I see my small improvements, I acknowledge that every drop of sweat mattered and that I am constantly evolving for the best. And this is the GREAT lesson: If you want something, you must persist and it will happen for you.
For several years, I've been collecting gym subscriptions and not using them due to the boring "flatness" of the exercises. At Replay CrossFit I have found a new dynamic approach to my workouts - it's all about biomechanics and endurance of every dimension of your body. It was challenging in the beginning, but once you get to know the technique, there's nothing stopping you... only yourself! The classes that I've taken boosted my energy, accelerated my weight loss and muscle buildup in a sustainable and fun way. The community is awesome and always very supportive.
I recently went to Replay Cross Fit and as a former tennis player, I found it to be a much better than going to a regular gym. I love how challenging it is and how it keeps me motivated to become better with every workout. My favorite exercise is wall balls and my least favorite has to be burpees. Hands down! My goals are to improve my upper body strength, become stronger overall and just have a healthy lifestyle. This brings me to another great thing I love about Replay CrossFit --- I love being part of an awesome and supporting community that shares the same goals.
