Learning About Crossfit From Outside "The Box"
Crossfit has never really been something that peeked my interest. For those who know me, you know that I'm a strict addict of my at home, Beachbody workouts. I need my Shaun T cheering me on or else fitness is just not fun for me. But at the same time I am very intrigued by these very extreme workouts such as Crossfit and American Ninja Warrior. I like watching people push their bodies to their limits. I am truly amazed at what people are capable of. I picked up this book with the hopes that I would learn a little bit about the exercise culture that I am not apart of.
I learned so much from this book. Author and journalist J.C. Herz shares some history and inner workings of the CrossFit culture. But what I found most interesting was the information about the human body and it's relationship to sports.
While this book definitely should not be considered as the end all resource on everything fitness and CrossFit related, it is a good place to start for anyone who is even remotely curious in learning about CrossFit.
If you're looking to get some inspiration for your own fitness journey I would highly recommend picking up this book.
I received a free copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
