A Beginner’s Guide to CrossFit

I have been there. Almost one year and a half ago I was walking into Crossfit Clusone for the first time and that was my very first time at trying Crossfit. I felt intimidated and worried, I did not know how much it would hurt. Yet, to this day never have I regretted the moment I…

Day 17 – I Am Afraid.

Between this week and next week, I am probably going to try my Back Squat PR. Remember on day 1, when I said I was going to work my ass off for the next weeks because I wanted a 100kg back squat? I literally worked my ass off, to get an ass. But let’s get…

I wasn’t there to quit.

What happens when you try your PR and it does not go as you wanted it? It hurts. It hurts real bad. You are in the gym/box and you cannot start crying. You cannot scream. BUT it hurts. That is what happened to me, a while ago. I had just reconfirmed my PR and wanted to…

You Could Be So Good at This BUT…

Have you ever had this type of conversation? When they tell you that without much effort you’re among the top10 of the class, and with just a bit more time you could become one of the best – not in the world of course, but at least in that peculiar niche environment the conversation took…

What It’s Like to Be Your Girlfriend’s PT for a Day

Do you remember that time when my boyfriend trained me? A lot of you guys asked about his perspective… it took me very little to obtain a YES from him, so there you go! Hope you will enjoy it. I think that sharing your passion with someone is one of the most pleasing things in…

Day 1 – about that Back Squat

For most of the people I know, this is day 365. This is the end. But for me, this is the beginning. Last Saturday, I did my back squat PR, nailing a 90kg rep and failing a 93kg. This is my start. This is what I am going to work on for the new year…

I Hate Crossfit. That’s Why I Go.

I hate CrossFit. Plain and directly. I truly hate it, from the bottom of my heart. From the moment we start the WOD till the moment we hear the familiar sound that symbolizes the end of the workout, my only thoughts are whether I should cry, die or run away. Yet I keep on going……

5 WODs in 5 Days: Can You Survive?

Quando riprendi ad allenarti dopo un periodo di stop, mi aveva detto mio zio, devi fare le cose con calma. Quando ho ripreso ad allenarmi dopo un periodo di squat, ho fatto 5 WODs in 5 giorni, al Crossfit Clusone. Per non farci mancare nulla. E per essere sicuri di non fare troppi danni a natale (grazie struffoli,…

Thank You Crossfit for Making Me Feel a BADASS

Sono in macchina. Al solo pensiero di dover fare gli scalini per andare a casa, mi viene male. Ma ho un sorriso stampato sul volto che rende difficile credere che abbia fatto qualcosa che non mi piace. Anzi, il realtà è evidente che ho appena fatto qualcosa che adoro. Ho fatto gli squat con 60kg,…

Crossfit, Run, Repeat.

Allora, parliamoci chiaro. Fino allo scorso 21 settembre, io avevo gran poche idee su cosa fosse il crossfit. O meglio, sapevo della sua esistenza, sapevo che era tosto, e ricordo che una volta mi era stato proposto, nell’agosto 2014, di andare a fare crossfit a Windsor, in Canada, alle 5 del mattino. Ma a parte…

Di quella volta in cui Ramona provò il crossfit

Come vi ho già raccontato diverse volte, il crossfit è stata la scoperta migliore fatta questo mese. E ovviamente ne ho parlato con amici, tra cui Ramona, che alla fine si è lasciata convincere a dare al crossfit una chance. Tanto che altro hai da fare di mercoledì mattina? Così, ci siamo incontrate fuori da Crossfit Clusone…
