We’ve had people come into the gym who are interested in getting started that say “I’m looking to get in shape, loose some weight, etc.” Then they’ll look me up and down and say, “…but I don’t want to get bulky.” I know better than to be offended and explain how they can get started. My favorite thing, if this person decides they like the challenge of Crossfit and sticks with it, is to see their mentality shift. Instead of wanting to “fit in a size 4 or loose x pounds” they become focused on athletic goals; they want their first pull up, they want to climb the rope, deadlift their bodyweight, jump on a box, etc. And then the best part is that their body changes; not as a result of trying to loose weight, but as a result of all the goals they’re achieving.
