In an attempt to avoid too many mundane details, I will just say that I have a multisport athletic background. By the start of On-Ramp, many years and pounds of fat had found themselves between me and that background. After college I went to work, got married, and made babies. Oh yeah, and sat down on the couch and didn’t move for almost a decade.
CrossFit came into my life out of unhappiness and chance over two years ago. At the time, I was unhappy about the “college weight” that I had put on but yet had no motivation to go the SRSC and workout for an hour or two on an elliptical or stationary machine. Needless to say I was at a standstill.
The first time I heard of CrossFit was from my brother, Jermey, a long time ago. He started CrossFitting 6 years ago, and every time he came home with his wife, we would do a WOD. I never understood what CrossFit was, besides a type of workout. My first workout was the “Filthy Fifty.” It was horrible!!!! I was sore for days. I never really thought twice about it or continued to CrossFit on my own.
I’d heard about CrossFit off and on during the past few years, but I never really gave it much thought. Then a friend started going to Hoosier CrossFit earlier this year, and I started to hear about it a lot. A LOT. Seriously, she talked about it all the time.
