This is typical me and just to expand...... other Glenn Hill moments were running the Biel 100km race twice without training (no i never learnt the first time), attending the Army Physical Training Instructor course and Army Diver (frogman) course without training. Berlin Marathon, German duathlons, biathlons and 320 mile charity bike ride without training.
You get the idea, i just rely on the fact that the human body is tough and you can pick things up along the way. (i am not suggesting other people copy this though lol)
I digress, i was very interested in Crossfit (the sport of fitness) and without knowing much about it or even attending a workout or Ramp (a preparation course you are supposed to attend prior to completing a workout) i booked myself on the level 1 trainer course in Manchester.
I intended on attending the preparation ramp and a few classes before my course but work and staff shortages ensured that never happened.
I turned up and soon figured out that the other 40/50 course members had all been doing Crossfit for months or years and knew what was going on. However i said nothing and cracked on, actually no one realised that i was an absolute novice. I was picking things up quicker than some and holding my own. I told a couple of the other students that the course was great and i liked the whole Crossfit thing and explained that it was my first ever taste.
Well end of Day 1 and the instructional staff who where excellent had been told that i was an absolute novice and thought it was hilarious. The weekend was great and i am loving Crossfit and hope to be smashing loads of it soon.
Morale of the story here is confidence and a base level of fitness can go a long long way in preparing you for anything. Actually it's all about what's going on in our heads if we think we can do it we generally can. If we think we can't then we definitely can't.
Crossfit is constantly varied high intensity functional movements combining gymnastics, Olympic power lifting and cardio.
