Cross Fit Fulshear

i have been wanting to try Cross Fit foreeeeever and i finally got the chance!

one of my biggest fitness inspirations, Alli Vasquez, is co-owner of CrossFit Fulshear! I’m incredibly excited for her and was honored to have been invited to their Get Real event yesterday morning. she is so passionate about sharing her purpose with others and such a humble, sweet woman.

IMG_19495098569366_1there was Zumba indoors, and a boot camp happening outside.  i planned to do both before i realized they were happening at the same time!  so after a few songs i stepped outside for some team circuit training. i’ve always seen the row machine at the gym and never used it…until yesterday.

the trainers coached us through a combo of kettle bell swings, high knees, walking weighted lunges, rowing, mountain climbers, and then we flipped a few tires. fun, fun.

i grabbed a quick snack outta my bag as i had a full morning of training ahead of me in addition to this event.  i had a crunchy nectarine right after boot camp, and some chicken breast chunks, carrots, and grape tomatoes for later.  then, Alli hopped on the bullhorn cause it was time….

ours was 1 min of the following exercises 3 times straight, no breaks:

  • wall ball squats
  • kettle bell swings
  • toe touch sit ups
  • ball slams
  • row machine

after each coach explained the exercises i was all like, ‘but where are the muscle ups? handstand push ups? cleans?’ bwhahahaha!  yeah, i am definitely not ready for all that stuff, but those are the moves i think of whenever i hear the words Cross Fit. one of the trainers graciously recorded some footage of me in action:

YEAH. loved it.  i’d also love to stick with it so that i can look back at this a few months down the line and see my progress. we’ll see what happens!

big thanks to Alli and the Cross Fit Fulshear team for hosting such a FUN event.  if you’re located and never tried CF or looking for a CF box, give them a shout!

i had to head back to Houston to train one of our 6 Pack USA clients and spotted this baby on the way to my car. taking pics of cars is so not my thing but when it comes to Vettes…i couldn’t help it! isn’t she everything!? looked like it was about to transform into an autobot or something #chills

20150321_115550_1 fueling up and eating with my hands cause i forgot my fork!  i used two kinds of Weber Seasoning (from Walmart) on the chicken breasts: Beer Can Chicken and Garlic Sriracha. i hope you spent your weekend doing something you enjoyed too!

Q: why do you cross fit?? why haven’t you tried it? what do you like (or dislike) about it?

  1. I LOVE Crossfit! I did it 2-3 a week until I was about 34 weeks pregnant. It was very empowering to me as my body was changing during the pregnancy. My husband had been a die hard Crossfit for a year before I joined. I can’t wait to get back to The Box.
