Ines Subashka: Introduce yourself.
Jesse James: My name is Jesse James, a college student and Marine veteran.

IS:  How long have you being doing crossfit?
JJ: I’ve been doing Crossfit since June of 2009 at an actual Crossfit facility. Before that I had incorporated some Crossfit workouts into my normal gym workouts.

IS: Have you been involved in some other sports before that?
JJ:Prior to Crossfit my sports experience was mainly limited to intramural sports like football, baseball, and volleyball while in the Marine Corps.

IS:  How did people around you accept the fact that you are doing crossfit?Did they take a jaundiced view of it?
JJ:Most of my friends and family think Crossfit is way too hard and that the only reason I can do it is because of some mystical quality that people in the military apparently possess. They really don’t listen when I explain that its something that anyone can do, all they see is the heavy weights and pictures of people lying on the floor exhausted after a workout and they want no part of it.

IS:  Do you have a nutrition plan that you follow? If yes, do you meet disapproval from you friends?Or do they understand why you eat the way you do?
JJ:I currently follow a Crossfit Football/Modified Paleo Diet approach to my nutrition. I’ll admit I’ve been only about 60% strict with it in recent months as I finish up my degree, but I look forward to returning to about 90% adherence in the coming months. Friends and family think that excluding grains and processed foods is a crazy notion, but they can’t deny the results so for the most part they just let me do my own thing.

IS: What does crossfit mean to you and did it change your life in some way?
JJ:To me Crossfit is a great system for improving GPP and exposing the general public to methodologies they might not ever come across in a typical gym. You won’t really ever see most large gym personal trainers trying to show clients how to do a clean and jerk or a full-depth squat, but that’s the norm for most Crossfit gyms.
Crossfit did change my life in that it exposed me to a new way of approaching fitness, nutrition, and health. Instead of the narrow minded view of fitness as either having to choose between emaciated distance runner or bronzer covered bodybuilder, there’s a whole world of things that can work depending on your goals.

IS: What is your favorite WOD and which one do you hate the most?
JJ:Favorite WoD would have to be Grace or the Crossfit Total. I know, I know…the CFT isn’t exactly a WoD, but I’m a sucker for lifting heavy. Least Favorite is anything with running over 200 meters. Running just sucks.

IS: Is it hard for you to combine your daily tasks with workouts? And have you ever used the excuse that you are too busy to workout?
JJ: Being a college student, trying to work, and maintaining a life outside of the two things had occasionally made finding time to workout more difficult. I’ll admit, since I’m not currently a member at a Crossfit facility I have to use the campus rec center…which has a single squat rack and not much else in terms of free weights. Given that I normally have to schedule 2 hours to workout due to waiting for equipment…it can sometimes mean I skip a workout if there’s already a line for the rack. It’s not optimal and I’m being quite lazy…but shit happens.

IS: What is your biggest accomplishment in crossfit so far?
JJ:
 So far my biggest accomplishment in Crossfit would be getting my deadlift up over 500 pounds. Before leaving the gym I was training at I hit 530#, which was over double my body weight. Granted…seeing me run now is a laughable affair…but I’m willing to trade one for the other.

IS:  What advice would you give to the beginner crossfiters in Bulgaria?
JJ: My biggest advice would be to enjoy Crossfit but don’t get too caught up in the “Crossfit-ness” of it all. It’s a great program but it isn’t the “be all, end all” of things when it comes to fitness. Understand that it’s one more tool (albeit a great one) in your arsenal.

I am a ‘something-searcher person” and I have devoted my life to the mission to reveal myself, to improve, to collect the pieces of puzzle in my own nature, so that to give and to receive from life as much as possible. My Life is history, full of broken dreams, falls, disappointments and finally achieved awareness, that it all depends on me and that each opportunity can be a materialized reality. We only have to think and act in a way, which will lead us on the road to its implementation. The most valuable resources we have are our time and health, and our Body is the instrument, through which we use them, to crate the world we live in. I dedicated my life to share myself, the wisdom and experience, which had left after the mistakes I had done. I am doing this in order to help people find their way, which will let them “’reinvent”’ themselves, to restore their health, confidence and trust for life. I wish they could realize their own potential. Training is rehearsal for the life itself; this is the place, where on a few square meters in the IFS you can experience each of the possible sensations- triumph, fall, disappointment, hope, will, weakness, and most of all power. The place, where in “monitoring conditions”” you can remind your body how to move correctly, how to work in your interest. Everything I have tried to achieve through IFS and the trainings is to help people bring back their consciousness, health and freedom to be who they are-without doubting. I have given myself time to re-build and to re-invent myself! Give yourself time as well. Come and train with us in IFS!
