CrossFit: Getting you ready for A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G

My co-worker Amber (center, in mango) took on the daunting task of having your fitness routine examined by the masses in our Sunday bPlus section.  Amber has also been a friend and mentor when it comes to triathlon training, too, so I was excited to hear her take on Lewiston’s newest gym.

Everyone was very encouraging and understood I was just a beginner at CrossFit Lewiston.

The instructors, all certified through CrossFit New England, show variations of the movements so beginners can work their way up to the more advanced motions.

“Our goal is to get you ready for anything. So if someone pulled out a deck of cards with workouts printed on them, you could do any of the workouts, whether it be run a marathon or do 100 burpees,” said Morissette [one of the owners of the gym].

I haven’t tried out CrossFit myself yet, but I’m interested — a few of the blogs I follow are hardcore devotees. If you are too, check out Amber’s article.
