Superhero WRITTEN BY CORA DESANTIS
“Prepare to self-rescue... No one is coming!” Coach Leslie yells from across the gym at True Spirit Crossfit. That’s right – no one is coming. So, let’s just say your kid fell in a hole... it’s a horrible thought, but could you squeeze your ass down that hole and pull you and your kid back up a la Apocalypse Now? Prepare to SelfRescue; no one is coming. I like Crossfit because I see measurable results through increases in strength, mobility, endurance, coordination and ability. My body feels continually sore in the good-all-over-likeyou-know-you-worked-out kinda way. And, of course, hell yeah, it’s hard and sometimes I look
at the workout and know for damn sure that if I had seen it online before I came... I might not have come. But we choose our hard. It’s hard to get overweight and be inflamed. It’s hard to struggle to move (extra weight always reminds me of being pregnant). It also reminds me of those sumo wrestler outfits they have at the county fair. You can put them on and feel 100 pounds heavier and like you’re moving in slow motion. That’s hard. And it’s hard to go to the gym and focus on you for an hour a day with all of life’s demands.
It’s hard to commit and show up every day and work out. But you get to choose your hard. I’ve been consistently going to Crossfit three times a week and I cannot believe it sometimes when I just did a workout with 100 squats and 100 burpees. I could not have done something like that in the past. Now I know I can do it and sometimes I blow my own mind. Showing up consistently for yourself is a big daunting deal. But you can be your own superhero and you can rescue yourself and your kid. If you need a little help, contact Leslie at True Spirit Crossfit for a free no-sweat consultation.
