How Crossfit South Cobb Changed My Life: 1/27/2011

I grew up being athletic playing all kinds of sports. I even played college soccer. After college I went from some of the other regular gyms to having a personal trainer trying to keep in shape. \r \r I felt like I was going through the motions and it was hard to get motivated doing the same movements day after day. Not to mention I didn’t see any big improvements.\r \r I thought I was in pretty good shape working out 4-5 times a week until I saw one of my friends go from a regular gym to 3 months into Crossfit. They looked like a new person. \r \r Being a competitive person that I am I wanted to see what Crossfit was all about so during my work lunch break I went to check out Crossfit South Cobb off of Windy Hill.\r \r I was extremely nervous at first because the only thing I knew about Crossfit was through videos I saw online and through what some of my friends said. \r \r I remember walking in and seeing people doing 20-30 pull ups in a row and thinking to myself I would never be able to do that more or less 1 pull up. Needless to say I was having second thoughts on whether Crossfit was for me. \r \r Immediately Miles Davis, the owner, walked me through the gym. It did not look like a normal gym, more like a warehouse with some kettle bells and some medicine balls. He explained to me what Crossfit was all about and the core concepts behind it. I thought it was neat that Crossfit is based on scientific evidence and they even write a journal every month explaining the reasoning behind all the workouts and movements.\r \r Still skeptical I soon went in for my first work out and quickly figured out that I thought Crossfit feels more like a sport then it did just a workout. \r \r You workout with other people. You quickly learn at what you are good at and what you are bad at. Everyone pushes you. You learn what the true meaning of training is that no video or regular gym could ever teach you. \r \r Miles and the other trainers walk you through all the lifting, workouts etc. One thing I learned is that they scale ALL of the workouts to your ability. So for example they have what looks like a large rubber band to help you with pull-ups. I was on the giant rubber band for 3-4 months until I could do a Pull up.\r \r Miles and the trainers actually didn’t let me workout with weights for the first 2 months while I learned all the proper techniques on all the lifting.\r \r Now instead of going to other gyms or doing working DVD’s I go to Crossfit South Cobb 4-5 times a week. I am hooked and my biggest regret was not joining sooner.\r \r I am 2 years into doing Crossfit and have been to many Crossfit gyms around the country. I have never been to a nicer or bigger facility then Crossfit South Cobb. They even have a bathroom with a shower if you are in a rush to get ready for work. It still do new things every week that I never thought I could do.\r \r Not only do I go almost every day but it has changed my whole lifestyle from my diet to my overall well being. \r \r The thing I like most about Crossfit South Cobb is not only does it take your fitness to a whole new level they treat you like family. \r \r I can’t thank Miles and his staff for everything. I would highly recommend Crossfit South Cobb to anyone. \r \r One of the most fun things I have ever done and one of the best decisions of my life. \r \r \r \r \r more
