We Want to Do CrossFit — or, Really, Any Workout — With Laura Prangley

You know how you see people on TV or online, and you’re like: Yeah, we could be friends. Kind of like how we are about Bob, Dooce and Gwen? Well, we have a new imaginary BFF to add to that list: Laura Prangley.

Laura has been a comedian and writer for years, but Erin just hipped me to this new video series called Girl vs. Sweat that she’s doing for Self magazine and, ZOMG, funny. Funny, funny, funny. In the series, Laura goes out and tries new hot and popular workouts. Workouts like CrossFit. And the result is hilarity.

And almost even more fun (and so freakin’ accurate) is her video update, 48 hours after doing said first CrossFit workout.

I’m no newbie, but I feel her soreness pain! And, Laura, call us? Maybe? —Jenn

    Considering I’ve always had this hatred of strength training (I hate how dizzy/sick it makes me feel) Crossfit has always sounded like the thing I should avoid at all costs. However, I’m beginning to learn that if I want the awesome lean athletic body, I’m going to HAVE to strength train. Plus it would probably help me out a lot in my new career as a farmer to be stronger.
    My gym (just signed up, so I’ve got at least a year there) doesn’t offer Crossfit though. I wonder if there’s an alternative?

    Liza,
    If you go to the Crossfit website, they list their WOD (workout of the day) every day, so you can do Crossfit anywhere. Just scale the exercises to your strength and ability and voila!

    I haven’t had the nerve to try it yet…

    Lori, thanks! That’s awesome that they give you that option on their website. I am, however, notorious for avoiding hard work, and a group environment is EXACTLY what I need when it comes to strength training (I need someone to tell me to do 5 more, or I’ll just stop. I’m a wimp.)
