I had the chance to finally try Crossfit Training myself at one of the most prestigious fitness training facility for athletes here in the country today, SPARTA Pioneer! Thanks to #EnsureStayStrong media event for inviting me over to experience what happens at a Crossfit Training Session for Beginners and if it is for me.
Omg! When I looked at the indoor training field,I said to myself “Whoa, this is legit. Am I ready to take the challenge? Am I ready for this? Am I strong enough? This training field is huge!”
First was the push-up area. We have to try to do as many push-up as we can for 30seconds and we have to do it in 3sets.
Followed by the squats. 3sets 30seconds.
- It definitely is an intense workout that will make you sweat like crazy. We had the crossfit Training Session for Beginners but I was intense. It may seem not too much as the entire session is just about 15minutes or less. The workout session we did was something that stretched a lot of muscles that was sleeping or was not used a lot.
- I almost throw-up I don’t know why but I also felt a bit dizzy and was catching my breathe a lot. This is a sign that I need to be more physically active and exercise more because I need to get in tip-top shape. I even had cramps after!
- Crossfit training is something I would like to do more often but it is more fun doing it with friends as they’re kinda support system and cheering squad at the same time. You push each other to your limit!
But the trainors/staff at Sparta was amazing, they are very encouraging, I almost gave up in the Crawl but the Trainor beside me was cheering for me so I was able to finish it.
- You need to hydrate. I think my dizziness was out of dehydration, I did not hydrate a lot when we started so I was crying for water at the end of the Crawl. I’m glad we had standby water and towels!
Yes. Even if it took me two days to get over a sore body, I will definitely do it again. When I stopped sweating after the crossfit training session, I felt really light and good like all toxins in my body was flushed out. I have never sweat as much as I did that day.
