Apparently Foundation CrossFit really spoiled me (in a good way!)… I’ve been having such a tough time finding a new home box in Manhattan. I went to CrossFit Hell’s Kitchen for a bit, Coach was great and the WODs were tough… but it’s just not the same. Then I moved down near Wall St and just couldn’t find the motivation to make the 20-minute subway ride. So this year, I switched gears and went into target training with Anna from Rich Barretta Private Training (RBPT). A former Mr. America, Rich looks like he hasn’t aged at all since he won the title in 1987 (less bulky and scary, more tattoo). I want in on whatever it is that he’s doing and eating to look great after 25 years! He brings his dog to the gym sometimes, which reminds me of Foundation CrossFit! And they have a super cozy seating area where I can munch on fresh apples and bananas from their fruit bowl.
Anyhoo, I’ve been training with Anna for a month now and I love it! Anna is great, tough and just full of energy without being over the top. One thing I really miss (other than my CF buddies) is lifting weights. These days, you can see me working a 5-lb max. With target training, those 5-lb’s feel a lot heavier. But I miss doing snatches and back squats and… and… and… Well, I will return to you soon, CrossFit… in the mean time, back to bosu ball, I go.
