I visited the crossfit gym I’ll be going to after work today and it got me super pumped up. The place is really nice—all open concept and stuff—and I met all the trainers who were super welcoming and excited to hear that I wanted to join. It wasn’t like when I had a trainer for four sessions and it felt very transactional. No, they were excited about me being there. It got me excited.
The only thing I’m worried about is getting there three times a week. Like everything in this city, it’s kind of out of the way. I think it’s going to take me twenty minutes of mixed trail and road biking to get there from work, then another forty minutes to get home. It seems like a lot.
BUT it’s all part of my fitness plan. I’m going to engineer the situation; those are my specs and I’m going to design around them. That means that I’ll just have to really prepare myself for crossfit days by bringing enough food and water to work, etc. It’s going to be organizationally difficult, but so, so worth it.
I start Friday :).
