Intimidated by CrossFit? Yeah, so was I, BIG TIME. I was a Division 1 athlete and no stranger to weight lifting or working out, but the idea of CrossFit scared the CRAP out of me. I had threatened to try it at least 10 times over the course of a year, and always chickened out last minute. Not only did the mortification of throwing up in front of strangers scare me, but I didn't want to get sucked into the "CrossFit Cult", like many of my friends had. Then one day I drove by CrossFit Bulletproof on my way to work and decided I needed to suck it up and head in, and I must say it was a great decision. Not only does Philip know what he's doing, but he also knows how to gauge each individual and their level of fitness personally. I had only seen CrossFit competitions and pictures online, so I assumed I was expected to walk in on day one and dead lift 400 pounds and do 300 pull ups in 5 minutes, and for the first time ever, I was happy to be dead wrong. Philip is patient, he won't let you hurt yourself, and if he thinks it is technique you need to work on, he may have you drop the weight all together and use a PVC pipe until you get it right. It's an exciting and frightening drive each morning not having a clue what that day's workout will be, and he will undoubtedly make you work your butt off, but when it is over, it is SO worth it. If you have even one small competitive bone in your body, this is what you should be doing, and if you want to do it in the Austin/Buda/Kyle area, you should be doing it at CrossFit Bulletproof. Not only is it a great workout, but the pricing and class time flexibility is pretty much the best I have come across (and like I said, I've looked into a LOT of CrossFit boxes). No one here pushes the "cult" on you, we all just want to be the best versions of ourselves we can be, and we all love a little "friendly" competition! I work hard at not being corny, but it is amazing the friendship/family dynamic that has been created at CrossFit Bulletproof, and Philip is the patriarch who has laid a foundation to help make us all healthier and happier.
