Trying Crossfit for the first time!

Slightly different post from me today, but I wanted to do a quick post on something un-makeup related that I've been trying to get in to lately. EXERCISE.

I'm one of those people who has every intention of going to the gym, but then for some reason I 'forget'. So when I was invited to try out a brand new Crossfit gym in Rochdale I had nothing to lose (except a few pounds ha). Hundreds of local fitness lovers brought their families to the launch of the new location (Eagle Technology Park) for Crossfit Rochdale East. The successful gym, which moved premises due to client expansion provided healthy treats, a bouncy castle and various fitness activities for the Rochdale community on Saturday 8th August.

If you don't know what Crossfit is, which I never properly until the day, it's a fitness program that combines various movements into timed workouts. So things like, squats, push ups, weightlifting, burpees (hate those!) and loads more. You can add in your own high intensity exercises too to mix it up a bit. It definitely beats running on the treadmill for an hour in my opinion haha.

Owners Hannah and Andy Philip said of the day:
'We loved opening our gym up to the community and welcoming new faces, Rochdale has had a lot of press recently about their healthy eating initiative and fitness goes hand in hand with that'

'Cross Fit is a hugely popular US brand with a large following in the UK and we hope to introduce even more people to a healthier more active lifestyle through our gym'

The facility focuses on making fitness available for all levels of ability and making fitness a part of a daily lifestyle. So even if you're a beginner or feel as though you can't do it, believe me you can!

Have you tried Crossfit before? If anyone has any other fitness tips I'd love to know!
