A hilarious blog from a guy who is extremely passionate about Crossfit

From the website:

I want people to get involved. I want people to have a place to vent their CrossFit thoughts. I want to give people a place they can belong to online. Sure, you can share your thoughts on your latest workout on the usual social networking sites. Unfortunately, there’s a high chance the majority of your audience there won’t give 2 shits.

At KippingItReal.com, I want other CrossFitters to be able to voice out, meet some cool people online, and give you all another place to shoot the shit. It’s great being able to do things like that at your local CrossFit box, so this is a great place to be able to do that kind of stuff online.

An absolutely amazing blog. While not exactly related to Crossfit the information you can learn on this site is invaluable. They also have a great response to a lot of the hate that Crossfit gets:

From the website:​

I am 32-year-old Detroit-based gal and a huge proponent of ladies strength training. I started this blog to keep track of my workouts, my diet, and anything else interesting that came around along the way, and it has since molded into a place where I can reflect on the emotional side of working out, plus also try to motivate and encourage others to find the confidence and strength that comes with being empowered by weightlifting.

Blair from http://crossfitmobile.blogspot.com preaches fitness independence and breaking the status quo. Something that many people don't realize is even possible.

From the website:​

In 2009 I left the United States to study European History at Universiteit Leiden, Sorbonne, and Oxford, and received my Masters Degree in 2010. During this time I was forced to re-imagine what fitness was and could be for an individual living without the standard resources of a gym. I began writing this blog to detail that re-imagination and I have been overwhelmed by the impact it's had on my life to this point.

I competed and placed 7th in the 2009 CrossFit Games. In 2010 I finished 23rd. More than anything, I am dedicated to the pursuit of the physical challenges our bodies were built to face, and the mental fortitude that comes from the ability to overcome them.
