Due to the nature of our work, most of us are forced to sit while working. Sitting down all day can cause some serious problems to our body, so a healthy way of life is something that we have to cherish.
One of the things that we could do in order to live a healthy life is workout. It only requires willingness, time and persistence.
We have gathered a team of our colleagues, who are not only willing to train, but they are willing to live by some rules and we have found a great coach to start with Crossfit trainings.
What we love about CrossFit is that it's more than just a sport. It's more than just a workout; it's kind of a lifestyle. You eat well, you train hard, you push yourself to the limits. CrossFit is like a shot of five-hour energy. It teaches us so much more about ourselves than other sports.
It's a vigorous workout that combines weight training, aerobics and gymnastics, all in one, so that you become fit in every area of your game. The goal is to be functionally fit: to push every aspect of your body to the max so that you're healthy, strong and in shape. Not just so you can lift a ton of weight or run a minute mile, but so you're fit to do anything that life throws at you.
Usually, a gym is just a collection of random people focused on doing their own different exercises. At CrossFit we are like Vega IT community.
CrossFit is supposed to be about competing against yourself and not the others. Most of the times, others encourage you and help you push your boundaries. Even the people who finish last get a round of high-fives for pushing themselves as hard as they can. But let us be honest, we compete with each other also.
But the best thing about Crossfit is the feeling when you finish your training. You getso tired, take a shower and then realize that you can't wait for the next training.
CrossFit is not just a guy thing. With the goal of the workout focused around overall physical preparedness opposed to just bulk strength, women are drawn to it also. A few of our female colleagues are a part of our Vega IT community. We are a group of 16 colleagues but we are growing steadily.
If you consider this interesting, join our team, so we could push the boundaries together.
