Wall Sits Are Fun

by Jillian on May 18, 2012 · 15 comments

I’m glad that a lot of you agree with me on the CrossFit pricing! I looked into it and you can pay less per month if you pay it all up front, but honestly, I also can’t give up $1,600 for 1 year of something that I don’t know if I am going to stick with yet.

This morning started off with a shot of Fitmixer amino. Literally, I mixed a scoop with a tiny amount of water and just shot it back. Quick and easy. Otherwise, I have to use the bathroom in the middle of my workout from drinking too much water. I drink a ton during my workout, so I try to minimize the amount before so I can hold off on bathroom breaks.


Anyway, I did my own CrossFit style workout this morning. Naomi posted a great cardio workout yesterday. It’s a good base and you can switch up any of the cardio machines or exercises to anything you want. I copied a screen shot from her post below. She is a certified personal trainer and has a ton of awesome workouts, go check them out!

The only change I made was the bench step overs in the last set of exercises. I swapped them out for box jumps.

And guess what? I dragged Joe along with me for the workout! We finished the stepmill 100 calories in under 10 minutes.


The jump squats, burpees, and pushups really got our heart rate up. I finished the one mile run in about 8:20 and Joe a little less, of course! The hardest part though, were the wall sits in the last set of exercises.


Me, loving it…and Joe, wanting to rip the phone out of my hand as I take picture….

Afterwards, Joe asked “okay, so what are we doing tomorrow?”. Haha!

Breakfast was a typical green smoothie bowl with granola and berries.



And now I’m off to get ready for work.

*I found out last night that I get to see these three lovely ladies again on Monday for a fun event in the city!

thats another thing about crossfit i was thinking about – it seems like the workouts could be conducive to a lot of different places, or at least a similar type of workout .. it wouldn’t be the same atmosphere though.

Wall sits kill me but boy do my thighs look great :) I was in PT last year for runner’s knee and my therapist suggest that exercise to strengthen my quads and hips.

Haha! Love Joe’s face, that would be Mike all the way, wanting to kill me for taking a pic!

Can not wait to see you Monday!!! <3

Think of it this way: if you buy the yearly membership then you will feel absolutely obligated to go regardless of anything and everything! Kidding of course…that price is outrageous for something you are not 100% sure about.

Have a great weekend!

I love Naomi’s site, I saved that workout to do later this week! Glad to hear it was hard!! :) True about the crossfit thing, whyyy must it be so expensive! Have a great weekend!

Hurry and get on a plane! I miss you!

Wall sits burrrrrn!

I totally agree with you on CrossFit pricing! Especially since most gyms are catching on and offering more intense classes, more frequently throughout the day.
