Last year, I got really interested in CrossFit. I had the opportunity to try a WOD (workout of the day if you don’t know the CF lingo) at the Healthy Living Summit back in August. I loved every bit of it! The fast pace, the intensity and the encouragement. When I started to research local Boxes in my area, I found that I do not love the cost. Ouch! Super expensive and out of my budget right now. So until the budget can handle paying that much, I decided to do my own WOD at home. There are tons of sites that can give you the WOD to do at home or your gym. You will just have to modify according to what equipment you have available.
Or you can do what I do – make my own WOD!
This WOD could be done at home, a gym(if there’s room by your treadmill and you don’t mind stares from others), track or outside. I did a warm up of easy running for 5 minutes before I cleared the time to begin. EMOM (every minute on the minute), I stopped the treadmill, jumped off and completed the 3 exercises before resuming running.
I loved this! It’s fast paced and kept me interested. You get cardio and strength in one workout. Perfect for time crunched days!
If you are interested in more WOD, here’s a few of my favorite resources:
