I recently had a conversation with a client about Crossfit. I admit I know nothing about it. But what I do know is that ZILLIONS (I counted) of people are getting incredibly strong and fit going to their local CrossFit gyms.
Here’s the thing. She said she didn’t care for it when people acted like it was the ONLY way to get healthier. And I responded that I didn’t care for any fitness group that acted like their way was the ONLY way. Everyone has to find THEIR THING. Do you have A THING? Is it yoga? Is it running? Is it Zumba? Great. Do that. It will keep you wanting to do it.
Sure, I’d love it if your thing was one of MY classes, but I actually don’t think that stroller fitness IS for everyone. And that’s okay. Maybe that’s not going to get me rich, but then that wasn’t my goal going into this.
What I really want is for more people to LOVE fitness. For them to LOVE setting goals for themselves and CRUSHING THEM. I wouldn’t mind helping out with that, but I’m not going to shame you or tell you you’re WRONG for not coming to me. And you shouldn’t join something because someone did that to you—YOU ARE WORTH MORE. Do what you LOVE, and what you’ll still love when you’re 70, even if it’s Prancersize, down to your NEW WHITE STIRRUP PANTS and your “come along hand” and STICK WITH IT.
We’re starting a stroller friendly Couch 2 5K program in 2 weeks, and I have to be honest—I’m so excited I could burst. I know that most people hold running up as THE WAY to get fitter, but what is more exciting to me is all the other stuff that our program will include to make people stronger on the way. It is my hope to help a lot of people love running, and to remember what it was like to be 10 and want to run everywhere. Let me know if you’re interested. Even if you do CrossFit on all the other days. ;)
