Least Favourite exercise or workout?
Describe your first day at CrossFit Guelph?
Funday! It was my first time in a gym in about a year, and I've never previously been much of a cardio/conditioning guy. The strength portion was ok, but as the workout started, I realized quickly how poor my conditioning really was. From that moment, I was pretty hooked on improving all facets of my fitness.
What sort of changes have you seen since joining CrossFit Guelph
Too many to count! Obvious ones include more strength and muscle, better conditioning and less aches and pains throughout the day (I have a history of back/neck injuries). I also sleep and eat better, and have more energy.
What advice would you give people who are curious about trying CrossFit Guelph?
Come in with an open mind, you will learn a lot. I had been a member at several different globo-style gyms previously, but right off the bat, I learned how to better move throughout all exercises. These small changes and tweaks have made a world of difference, and I'm much safer when working out. The community at Crossfit Guelph is awesome and very supportive no matter what skill level you are, so there's no reason not to give it a try!
