We’re going to take a break from wedding photography for a moment and talk about something that’s just as fun for me:
Those of you who know me, know I enjoy CrossFit.
Yeah… we’re going there today. That’s right.
Two years ago, I watched the CrossFit Games and was completely obsessed with the toe-to-bar movement. I had never seen that in a boot camp or at the regular gym before. After spending some time on YouTube and seeing what this CrossFit was all about, I thought this sport was only for pro athletes and I could never attempt those kinds of movements.
But a good friend of mine had me give it a try and here I am a few months later at NoDrama CrossFit in Kincardine deadlifting 160lbs, doing proper push-ups and even rocking 15 consecutive double-unders. These may seem like small feats, but for someone who never lifted before, I feel a million times better about myself and that’s all that matters. Plus, I am no longer that girl who is afraid of the weight section at the gym.
The best part about CrossFit is that it’s for any age. Case and Point:
The Masters Open CrossFit Competition (40 years old and up) at CrossFit Altitude in Burlington yesterday.
Everyone was invited and naturally, I brought my camera along to capture the first Workout Of The Day. These people are truly inspiring and I walked away that day hoping I have the stamina and strength they have when I’m 40. (10 years and counting….)
Here’s a few highlights from the day.
