Fitness & Sports: Meshugge CrossFit

CrossFit Journal: The Performance-Based Lifestyle Resource

Serena Schmoll

I started CrossFit at The J in February 2012 in an attempt to get some exercise while rehabing an ankle injury. The previous September, once the kids were back in school, I decided to get back on my treadmill and ramp up! I started walking 4 miles, or about an hour every day. I was going to lose the 30 pounds I’d gained over the last several years. What that got me was a partially torn Posterior Tibial Tendon, tendinitis, swelling, a lot of pain and the possibility of reconstructive surgery - we’d have to wait and see how things went. After an MRI, 3 months in a boot and 8 weeks of PT, I was allowed to use the recumbent cycle. I get bored easily so it didn’t take long on the bike for me to need a change!
I was complaining about this to my new Fitness Floor friends, Erika and Brady, who suggested I try their new CrossFit program. I was hesitant because I still wasn’t allowed to plantar flex which meant no walking, running, stepping or jumping. They assured me I could modify those portions of the WOD until I was able - and even if I was never able, I could still do CrossFit. The program was brand new and sometimes it was just the trainer and I, who, Mike Hicks I’m talking ‘bout you, was/is always supportive. Never did he discourage me because of my age, my fitness level, my being a chick - which was a fear I had in a room full of barbells and weights. It was hard for sure, but also fun and always different. Now, almost 3 years later, I consider myself a diehard Meshugge! It’s still hard, always challenging and never boring. I’ve come a long way. I’ve lost those 30 pounds, was able to rehab a badly damaged ankle and avoid the surgery from hell, but more importantly, I’ve made many new friends - some as close as family - who always encourage and inspire me.
All because of CrossFit.
Very Cool.

What is CrossFit?

CrossFit training is functional movements done at high intensities. It is important that you take the intensity level and define it for yourself based on your athletic and fitness levels.

This program is for anyone wanting to take it to the next level, get in shape or would just like to switch up their routines. It includes all modalities of training (Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics movements and metabolic conditioning) and can be scaled to meet an athletes needs.

CrossFit - CrossFit also known as “The Sport of Fitness” includes a Workout of the Day (W.O.D.) that combines strength training and cardiovascular conditioning by using both body weight and weighted exercises performed either for time or for task. CrossFit classes are for Mixed-level athletes that have experience with CrossFit style classes.
