227 and 228: Pick a Fight




About a month ago I tried out Cross-Fit. I'm not sure if the gym was representative of how they all are, but I must say I was less than impressed. With all the wonderful forms of exercise out there why would I want to partake in one that wasn't actually fun? I mean, maybe some people thing endless push-ups, sit-ups and other grunt induces repetitive exercises are exciting, but I prefer things where I get to dance or at least beat up the other person. I did discover that I jump rope like a little girl, unsurprising since that's when I learned, which is apparently much more energy consuming and not as cool looking. I politely walked out of my free class somewhere around when they wanted me to lift weights with form that was the complete opposite of what I learned in China. Eh, to each her own.
