Welcome to KippingItReal.com!
The (Soon-To-Be) #1 CrossFit Blog And Info Source
So this is it! After owning this domain name for over a year, I finally got myself to build this site out. Of course, it’s a work in progress, but all I wanted to do was get a basic layout finished and just write stuff for you all.
Yes, I claim this to be “The #1 CrossFit blog and source for CrossFit info” because it will be. Trust me 😛
There are so many great things about CrossFit on the internet, but there really isn’t that ONE definitive source for everything. For example, I’m always asked where I pick up certain things, like pull up grips. There have been several times I’ve pointed people over to AgainFaster.com for those. I’m sure there are other people out there who want to find out more on this awesome sport as well. So why not point them here?
So Why Start This CrossFit Blog?
I want to be able to give back to the community somehow. CrossFit really changed my life…and I’m not meaning to sound corny or anything. It’s just the truth. A few years ago, I tried it out at my campus gym in college with a buddy of mine (he’s now the head coach of the box in his area), and I was hooked. Sure, I sucked with a 20 minute Fran, but I couldn’t get enough of this.
Then in my senior year of college, I wanted to sign up for a local box and experience the real deal. While I’m dropping some good cash every month on my membership, it’s definitely worth it. I got into the best shape of my life, met some really awesome people, and had a blast in the process.
Also, I’ve always been into blogging. Since high school, I’ve been writing some personal blogs and actually got a decent readership (*cough*…only 100 views in a day lol) then I stopped once I got to college. Now, I want to get back into it. I saw the opportunity in CrossFit, the sport I love. Of course, there’s the official main site and various blogs out there that are quite entertaining. However, nothing really caught my eye.
That’s where KippingItReal.com comes in.
I Also Need Some Motivation
Last month, I went away to visit family out of the country for a few weeks. It sure was a great time, although my health went downhill from there. With the lack of physical activity and the constant eating with relatives, it’s no surprise I’m so out of shape right now. The past two weeks of WOD’s have been TERRIBLE. An absolute nightmare.
There’s a lot of that mental game going on, although I’ll touch upon that in tomorrow’s post.
Basically, I’ll also be using this blog as motivation to get into better shape than I was when I first joined the box. For me, it’s pretty easy to show up five times a week at the box. My only issue is with my nutrition. I love to eat haha.
Then again, what kind of credibility would I have if I ran a CrossFit blog and was simply a keyboard jockey like this?
That’s why I need to whip myself back into shape and shoot for long-term results. So who’s with me?
KippingItReal.com Is For All You CrossFitters
Every day, I see people on Facebook and Twitter post all sorts of CrossFit stuff. Sadly…no one really cares or gets it. Am I right? I’ll be posting multiple times a day on here, and hopefully a lot of you will post some comments. Why? Cause people reading this blog and browsing this site will actually care. That’s what CrossFit’s all about.
