Why CrossFit is for you in 2022

Updated: Sep 26, 2022

Hey you! Yes, I’m talking to you. I want to share a little story with you.

Once upon a time, there was a girl–aka me–whose biggest dream was to shed some pounds. I wasn’t talking about those annoying five or ten pounds that just stopped me from fitting into that gorgeous pair of jeans; I was talking about a drastic change. You see, I’ve always been a little thicker than the average Singaporean girl. I got put in the TAF club (aka the Trim and Fit club, this program was created in the 90s to reduce obesity amongst school children. It has since been phased out, thankfully), I had to shop for clothes in the women’s section as early as eight years old, and I was told my entire life that if I lost weight I’d be beautiful and worthy.

You would think that would take a toll on one’s self-esteem, right?
