Before I started CrossFit I had two main concerns – I didn’t think I was fit enough to survive a single CrossFit workout and I thought everyone would be intimidating super athletes. Luckily the reality was very different! The workouts are intense and challenging, but the coaches scale the workouts to suit your level of fitness, they help you work on your technique and strength, and encourage you every step of the way. The workouts give results fast and every day I feel fitter, stronger and more confident than the day before. The sense of community at CFH is also great – perhaps it’s the result of so much shared pain, sweat and success! There is a mix of people and levels of fitness, but everyone is working towards the same goals of getting fit and having fun. Thanks to Piyush, Naveen and the rest of the CF Himalaya team for starting me off on the CrossFit journey. And remember, however much it hurts, just smile through it!
