NSU Law Student and CrossFit

October 13, 2015 / Training

Here at CrossFit 1Pulse we love success stories. Whether you just got your first pull up, ran your first 5k, or lost 20 pounds, we celebrate it all. Today’s success story includes a more unique story of a first year law school student named Andres and how CrossFit has helped him stay on track during his first year. We know he’s very busy with school all day so we decided to keep it to two questions:

How has CrossFit benefited you on your first year of law school?

This is very easy for me! Law school is a lot of work, and if you don’t manage your time correctly you won’t make it. You have to prioritize the things you want the most and for me that 1 hour where I can get away from the books and focus solely on getting through a tough workout is huge. So, my time management alone is one of those things that has greatly improved. Mentally, these workouts leave you feeling great. You come in mentally exhausted from the school grind all day and come out feeling refreshed and with a great sense of mental clarity. I like to start my day with a great workout at 7am because the energy it gives me throughout the day is like no other. Is it always easy waking up at 6am to get ready for a workout? Of course not, but the feeling afterwards is well worth it!

Would you recommend CrossFit to your fellow students?

Oh, definitely! You just have to try it and see for yourself! Is it easy? Nope. I’ve learned that you have to work for all the good stuff in life. Are there days where you just don’t want to move out of bed? Sure, but the community at CrossFit 1Pulse is always pushing me to get in there and to get better! I try to bring CrossFit up to all my friends because I’ve seen all the benefits from it. At NSU we have a great facility but I enjoy clearing my mind from everything that is related to school which is why I head on over to CrossFit 1Pulse down the road.

The poor kid had to go finish writing a paper but as you can see, there are a lot of benefits to getting a good workout in for you students out there. If you’ve been feeling tired all day and are looking to get a great workout in less than an hour, then come check us out and workout with Andres for free (we want you to try it first)!
