CrossFit must be the new craze. I wouldn’t know. My idea of fitness is not getting winded when I carry the clean laundry up to the second floor. But I see bumper stickers, Facebook posts and TV shows proclaiming the benefits of CrossFit.
Wikipedia defines CrossFit as, a strength and conditioning program with the aim of improving, among other things, muscular strength, cardio-respiratory endurance, and flexibility. It advocates a perpetually changing mix of aerobic exercise, gymnastics (body weight exercises), and Olympic weight lifting.
They lost me at “strength and conditioning program.”
I’m not a big fan of exercise programs. I’m not a member of a gym. I don’t walk with others. I don’t own a bike or a treadmill. Anything with the words, “boot camp” is not for me.
My “program” is taking my dog for a walk twice a day. Oh, and I try and park as far from the front door of Target as possible.
