Get Out of Your Comfort Zone 💪🏻

Crossfit women over 50

Comfort zones, let’s talk about that for a minute.  

Stepping outside of your comfort zone.  

We all know it’s a scary place to be, that’s why it’s called a “comfort zone”. Well, because it’s comfortable.

But I did just that this past week.  

I picked up the phone and called The Boot CrossFit. 

I went for an exploratory meeting.

Right off the bat, in the parking lot, women whom I don’t know were waving to me!  


I spent an hour and a half just talking to the owner/coach/trainer.

This is what I was looking for…a place that feels like I belong here. 

I didn’t have to make the awkward first move…people welcomed me in!

Next was orientation.  

A simple questionnaire/assessment. Then a physical assessment.  

I am proud to say I did better than I thought I would, considering I haven’t done much physical activity in years.  

My first class was amazing…again, everyone was so welcome and inviting.  I didn’t feel out of place at all.

Actually met a lady that I used to deliver packages to, when I worked for FedEx.

I know now this is where I belong.  

Can’t wait to go again.  And to feel like I sorta know what I’m doing.

That way I won’t walk around on jello legs and shaking arms.  

I have to let you in on a little secret of mine.  Back in my younger days, I wanted to be a bodybuilder.

But when I found out you had to eat veggies…I chose not to.

Cause back in the day, this chick didn’t eat veggies.  

My, my how things have changed.  I love veggies now!  

Will I become a bodybuilder…eh, who knows.  Stay tuned for sure.

Bye bye comfort zone…take the chance, step out of it, and maybe it’ll be just what you need.
