It’s time to pay the piper—the fitness piper, that is.
I’m cringing as I type, but this is my public commitment: I will follow the programming on CrossFit.com at least for all of January, and I will post my pathetic results in the comments each day. I’m writing this article so all of you hold me accountable.
As I write this, I’m in Santiago, Chile, and it is Day 117 of our trip through the United States and Central and South America on motorcycles. As we close in on the final days of the trip, I can say with certainty my fitness and nutrition have taken some hits. I have been doing my very best to stay in shape on the road, and while I’m surviving, I’m not setting PRs all over the place.
My diet and training have been less than ideal, and I’m expecting a rough re-entry when I rejoin my crew and start hitting workouts again. And I know myself: if I get back and start programming for myself, there will be temptation to take an easier path because I’m slightly out of shape.
So, once again, I find myself looking to the one source I know for a fact will be dishing out unbiased fitness in large doses: CrossFit.com. I’m dragging as many people as I can into this with me. I invite you to put your own fitness to the test and join me in the January workouts. Misery loves company, right?
Here’s the link to CrossFit.com. Click it, and I’ll be in the comments every day starting Jan. 1. See you there.
