CrossFit is replete with stories of people who have physically transformed themselves, lost a lot of weight, gained muscle, leaned out, and every other late night infomercial promise. However, in CrossFit these stories are true, and you can’t spend any amount of time in a CF gym without meeting one of these stories in person. Heck, many of us are these stories. Obviously I love those stories, but I think I like hearing about the non-physical effects of CrossFit even more. I have written about this side of CrossFit before, here, here, and here for example, and I think it is an under-realized aspect of CrossFit training. So, here is another example I was recently sent.
This post is written by a member who wanted to remain anonymous. She has been CrossFitting since the end of last year, about 9 months, and she recently took some large chunks of time off her 10k race times.
To my mind, it is the intangible benefits of CrossFitting that are the benefits that will end up being the most useful, that will make the biggest difference in your life.
