A little over a year ago my friend Brynn somehow convinced to sign up for a crossfit gym. I had no idea what I was getting myself into other than all of a sudden I was getting my booty kicked every time I went to the gym. Ute Crossfit was started by a former Ute football player and his former Ute soccer player wife. They got all their collegiate athletes to join so the place is pretty intense. If everyone wasn't so nice, I would probably have to quit, but everyone really is so nice. We do crazy things like jump on boxes, handstand pushups, carry sandbags, and other crazy things like pull ups. I struggle with a lot of things at crossfit, but pull ups have been the death of me. I thought I would NEVER be able to do them. I've been working and working and working trying to get better but mostly just got frustrated. One day last week we worked on pull ups. I FINALLY did some pull ups...all on my own and I have the blistered/callused hands to prove it. Let's just hope I can do them again next time.


  1. I have never, ever been able to do a pull-up so I am impressed! Sounds like a cool gym!

  2. Congrats!!!! I hate pull-ups, although I have never tried to do one. I'm too scared!!!!!!! haha!

  3. The last time I did a pull-up was in elementary school at fitness CONGRATS to you for doing them now. They are virtually impossible for me to do these days!
