Heart Disease is one of the highest rate killers of women in the US, but it disproportionately affects Latina women. The American Red Cross states that on average, Latina women are likely to develop heart disease 10 years earlier than non-Hispanic women (source). As someone who has struggled with weight issues (I lost 100 pounds in between sophomore and junior year of college), I already knew I needed to be conscious of my fitness, but knowing that Latina women like myself are more likely to have heart disease makes it much more important to take care of my body. One of the best ways to proactively address heart health is through exercise (source).
I have tried many different exercise routines, but never particularly liked to workout. I worked out solely because I was afraid of getting heavy again. And then, I found Crossfit. Crossfit is the gym I never knew I needed and the gym I am so thankful to have joined.
In just one hour, I get a great workout and don’t have to spend multiple hours per day at the gym. That is definitely a perk for me, since I am so busy with working a full-time job, pursuing my MBA, running this blog, and freelance writing while also maintaining my relationship with Casey and taking care of my dog, Bo. Since a Crossfit membership is so expensive, it encourages me to actually show up at the gym (or box, as they are called in Crossfit.) The camaraderie of Crossfit is impossible to be beat– it motivates me without being intimidating, like so many other gyms are. The Workouts of the Day (WOD) push me out of my comfort zone to try new workouts. Hero WODs like my first WOD in honor of Sandy Hook elementary teacher Victoria Soto inspire me to keep going when I want to quit. The workouts are actually fun. Exhausting, but fun in the sense that I know I have totally kicked butt and am getting stronger by the day. Joining Crossfit has absolutely changed my life and is something I plan to stick with as long as I am physically able.
Unfortunately, sometimes my Crossfit workouts leaves me with more sores, aches, and pains than I can handle. When I’m feeling aches and pains, I turn to Advil®. Advil® is the #1 selling pain reliever among over-the-counter brands and has provided safe, effective pain relief for over 30 years. *Among OTC brands *Use as directed
I buy my Advil® at Walmart because it’s conveniently located near Crossfit Raeford– literally, I just down the block and around the corner. It’s so easy to stop by Walmart on my way home from work to grab a bottle of Advil® when I am needing pain relief. Also, in Walmart, the pharmacy and medical aisles are located near the front of the store, making it easy to stop in quickly to grab what I need.
Advil® reduces my pain so I can get back to my Crossfit workouts to keep taking care of my body.
