“CrossFit is Dangerous??? And How It Very Literally Saved My Life. By: Miranda Oldroyd
For years I have said that CrossFit has changed my life! I have said over and over again that it SAVED my life because of how it changed me as a person and brought such a passion back into my days.
Well, now I can say it LITERALLY…
CROSSFIT SAVED MY LIFE!!!
But, CrossFit is so dangerous right??? High rep olympic lifting! Muscle ups! Rope climbs!! You could hurt your back! What if you fall from the rope or the rings?!! You can’t have perfect technique when you are moving that fast!! You might lose your positioning!!
What is dangerous?? You tell me…..
The few months preceding June 30th (2012)….were chalk full of all that crazy stuff!! I mean, I had been training with 2 of the most INTENSE athletes in all of CrossFit, Jason Khalipa and Neal Maddox (and the soon to be well known Garret Fisher). I would show up every day and just try to do what they do….including TONS of heavy oly lifting, 3-4 workouts a day, ring muscle up to handstand push ups (yep…I am a bad ass). I was more fit than ever and so excited about the progress I was making.
Me in danger….”
