I am not affiliated with the CROSSFIT franchise. But I have been a life-long advocate of cross fit training, as in ... I train EVERY aspect of fitness, not just single elements. I train myself and my clients the same way: improving stength, cardio, endurance, flexibility, and mobility. I abhor machines (weight machines, spinning machines, etc., etc.) I will train you in the middle of a room, where you have to sit, stand, and move in empty space. Your core will be engaged the entire hour, assisting you in balance and movement control on multiple planes. Every muscle in your body will be activated and engaged, and in exercises and drills that will enhance your FUNCTIONAL STRENGTH < read: I will be stronger in my everyday life, in both routine and in emergency situations. To me, that is what cross fit training is all about. Training the entire body in complex movements that engage and challenge groups of muscles while elevating your heart rate, accelerating your breathing pattern, and sweating out the toxins. Speaking of which .... it's time for another training session!
I felt guilty about how overweight I had become, and how out of shape I was. Bambi got my mind straight about the "journey" I was on. I'm a work in progress, and every week I learn something new from her about nutrition and living a life of fitness. My progress has been steady(!) and I'm motivated to stay in this for the long haul. To say I "love" my trainer is an understatement.
