8 Feelings All CrossFit Beginners Can Relate To

7. Feeling proud of your growing calluses

Some (our mums included) might think calluses are not a welcome addition to our hands, but calluses are the physical representation of the hard work you’ve put in so far – and they’re easier to grow than muscles.

8. Discovering your competitive side

Of course we all focus on technique and trying to nail the timing of our cleans, ensuring a push press is not a push jerk, or figuring out double unders. Yet when the WOD starts, it’s hard not to get a little bit competitive.

Even if you don’t care where you finish at the end of the day, it’s nice to see when you can keep up with other people in the class. Besides, other people going all out definitely will make you want to go faster too, and you can’t deny that’s your competitive side coming out.
