What is Fitness?
Fitness is such a big word that means a LOT! At it's simplest definition, fitness is any activity that moves your body from one place to another.
For me, my journey these past few years have included a lot more than just running and CrossFit.
For example, this blog began way back in 2006 when I was so frustrated with a very lengthy running injury. I was forced to do other things while recovering from that injury. Spinning. Swimming. The stupid stair climber (I refuse to say climbing stairs because I didn't do that. I was stuck on a mind-numbing piece of machinery).
Those other activities all fall under my Fitness category.
Once I got back to running regularly, I stayed with the gym and focused on those Body Pump classes. I LOVED strength-training.
Then, CrossFit came along and changed my life (for the better). I can't praise CF enough and I do it plenty.
But then life happened and I got stuck in the biggest rut of my adult life. No more running or CrossFit or even, Fitness.
2018-2019 saw a return to more consistent running, but nothing else.
For 2020, along with running, I am returning back to more Fitness workouts. I have lost a lot of strength gains I had while at CrossFit. I tried to return but there are way more things I CAN'T do than things I can.
A return to a small gym with group classes is just what I want and need to slowly build my body back to its former glory. I am so excited for December 2019 and beyond!
