Crossfit an account of my personal experience

by on Feb.15, 2012, under crossfit, La vida del Nahual, Que pedo con esto

If you are looking for a review that actually says how much crossfit changed my life, how is a lifestyle, how fun and great it is, you might be a bit disappointed. There are enough posts about that, so feel free to read those, this post is to finally put my thoughts and influence that crossfit has done and give out warnings and tips.

I usually don’t talk about my private life online, but I believe this should change and even better would put the point across of what I’m saying. Anyway you might not agree with this, comments are welcome I don’t have the complete truth but this are my thoughts on crossfit.

Yes, I’m a crossfit head (crossfit-freak) and honestly I’m probably one of the archetypes that drives people AWAY from crossfit, why? I was born with a tumor in my left foot, which technically (according only to 9 out of 10 doctors) stops me from being able to run and do hard activities, so when I was a child I was turned into swimming by my parents, I was for more than 5 years national champion in various categories in Mexico, and going to nationals and swimming 22 km daily was my life (train from 5am to 7am, shower go to school then go back form 6pm to 8pm 5 days a week) after qualifying and having good times and seeing someone else get taken to the olympics (with worse times) my friends and I burned out and left, which took me to take 2 years of gymnastics, in which I ended up in 13th place in my second year at the nationals, then I took rock climbing. I’m not bullshitting or going into an ego trip, I can honestly say in every sport I’ve tried I strive to be the best, it’s exactly what I was taught “be THE best, in ANYTHING but the BEST”.
