10 Problems Only Female Crossfitters Will Understand

Do any of these sound familiar?

6. YOUR MOTHER THINKS YOU’RE IN AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP

Yes, those bruises. No, mom, it’s okay, I just (jumped against a Box, spectacularly failed a wallball shot that socked me in the face…).

Though in all seriousness, if Crossfit was a guy, he’d be a pretty bad choice. I mean, you’re constantly hurting, all your friends make fun of him, and he really wants you to stop eating sugar. What an idiot. Why do you put up with that?

5. LISTENING TO THE ERRONEOUS IDEA THAT WE NO LONGER LOOK FEMININE

Due to the changes that happen eventually to our bodies, comments on the loss of femininity start to begin. Femininity is not shaped by the outlook; it’s something we carry within. It’s also in our behaviour, our empathy for each other, our vulnerability to be ourselves and courage to go out of the social comfort zone. What really makes a woman beautiful is seeing her being confident and vulnerable at the same time, with her own body and all of its flaws.

There are some patterns which are related to being feminine: gentleness, empathy, sensitivity, caring, sweetness, compassion, tolerance, nurturance, etc. Which one could be possibly taken away by lifting weights and having a sporty physique? All characteristics are traits of personal development and have nothing to do with the way we look.
