Kristin is a High School teacher
Kristin hs been doing CrossFit for 6 years now after finding out about it during her time in Kyoto. Through participating she was about to find the motivation to exercise more as well as make friends while getting fitter. She sees the box as not just a place to workout but a home to a wonderful community of which some have become her best friends. If you're feeling a little nervous about coming in she recommends coming in with a friend. She found this helped eliviate the fear of going it alone during her first steps. Why not celebrate your first wod with a friend by enjoying a nice cold beer at iBrew in Ebisu as Kristin suggests. In moderation of course 😄
High School Science Teacher
Right when I first moved to Japan, I started at the CrossFit box in Kyoto. I needed a place that would motivate me to exercise at a more intense level than I could achieve on my own, and I also wanted to make friends.
The community. I have made some of my best friends in Japan through CrossFit. The CrossFit box for me isn't just a gym; it's a place where I can socialize, laugh, play, and work hard with others towards a common goal.
Not really, but I admire all of the women who still make time to work out at the box, even with a full-time job and kids.
Anything with metcon intervals!
Find a friend and start together! Push each other and motivate each other! In the beginning, I was too nervous to go to the box alone, but going with my friend was easy and fun.
iBrew Ebisu: for post-WOD beers (in moderation)!
