We Tried It: CrossFit
Are you into insanely intense workouts where you push yourself harder than you thought possible? Then you’ll love CrossFit. A super-tough, constantly varying style of circuit training that involves exercises from various different fitness disciplines (from kettlebell swings to gymnastics to Olympic weight-lifting), CrossFit has become one of the fastest-growing fitness trends in the world.
Recently I was invited to Reebok’s CrossFit Box on Fifth Avenue in New York City—the first state-of-the-art gym specific to CrossFit—where I got to meet and train with two-time Reebok CrossFit Games champions Annie Thorisdottir and Rich Froning, Jr. Check out the video below to get a glimpse of the workout I tried and to hear about Annie’s favorite CrossFit event and her game-day prep.
