You Know You’re a CrossFitter When…..


Funny post from CrossFit Verve

(my good friend Meat Chan!)

■Your shins have more scrapes than a twelve year old boy.
■You know better than to say, “That looks easy”.
■You’ve spent HOURS watching videos of other people working out (who does that?).
■CrossFit t-shirts dominate your wardrobe.
■When you travel, your first concern is if there is a local affiliate close by.
■Refresh is your favorite button after 9pm.
■3 on 1 off takes priority in your schedule.
■The words Snatch and Jerk have lost there comedic value, but farting while deadlifting has not.
■There are days you have to talk yourself OUT of going to the gym because it’s a rest day and that means you are suppose to rest, right? You are confused at this and ask your coach if you can still go for a run. When they tell you rest means rest, still confused, you ask if that means you should do nothing or could you do…?
■You can relate to this sentence “I feel like a GD Navy Seal and an Olympic Gold Medalist wrapped in a F-ing suit of body armor”.
■You shave your hands.
■Pain is a relative term.
■You know what this stands for IWCABTAMD.
■You know the ten general skills by heart and can recite them at social gatherings.
■You have posted pictures of yourself working out on facebook.
■You believe in sweat angels.
■You’ve looked up the criteria for the Nobel peace prize to see if you can nominate Coach Glassman.
■Tape and chalk are at a premium.
■You used to bit your nails and now you pick at your calluses.
■Almond butter is the nectar of the Gods.
■You know that the benchmark WOD’s are named after real people and you would find it interesting to talk with some of them and find out WHY?
■You think in blocks not calories.
■Fat is delicious, you laugh at fat free.
■You don’t remember what it is like to have mirrors in your gym.
■You know that a 70%+ dark chocolate bar can sub as 3 blocks carbs.
■You must workout with loud obnoxious music, but never hear a word of it.
■You consider other CrossFitters family.
■You believe the world would be a better place if everyone was a CrossFitter.

Those are some we came up with, now lets hear yours.

  1. These are some of the points I found that made me a Crossfitter in addition to the post… (by the way the one about calluses is so true along with having no idea what the words to a song are)

    You know you are a Crossfitter when…

    *You are reading the blog at the same time you are icing your soreness after a WOD.

    *You challenge people that aren’t with CF to go a weekend without bread and see how they feel.

    *You don’t see if you are thinner in the mirror but see how the definition of your muscles has increased.

    *You’re a girl that does CF and you tell boys that don’t that you can beat them up.

    *You would refer a friend for free just so they can be a part of the goodness.

    *You find it normal to brag if you puked or cried after a workout.

    *You would sign up for a class on a holiday.

    *You go to dinner with CF people and non CF people and realize that all you can talk about is CF, my apologies to those that can’t understand.

  2. You know your a Crossfitter when you do a different girl for time each week and are not considered a whore!!!

  3. Korena Chester Says:

    You know you are a CrossFitter when you’re hand gives birth to a blister and you’re a proud parent and show it off!

    You know you’re an insane CrossFitter when you actually start naming your blisters…..”This is Joe and this is Jan…..”

  4. Here’s one for Paleo CF’ers:

    You are a member of PETA – People Eating Tasty Animals… 🙂

  5. You know you are a Crossfitter when you get your ass kicked so hard that it hurts to sit on the toilet….but yet you find yourself ALWAYS coming back for more!

  6. You know you’re a Crossfitter when your body is so sore that you can barely move and when a non-crossfitter asks why on earth do you do that to yourself, you say “Because it HURTS SO GOOD!!”

  7. You know you’re a crossfiter when:
    * you schedule everything in your life around the WOD and you have your crossfit schedule printed & posted in your office

    * you start listening to music from the gym hours before the workout so you are pumped up and ready to go

    * your child starts talking like a crossfiter, knows that paleo is and chooses to eat apples rather than fries because, “mom, that’s the right choice”

    * you don’t plan a vacation home because they don’t have an affiliate that you can visit (would someone in Wyoming please open a box?!)

    * you rip the hell out of your hands on pullups and yet you come back the next day for more (and rip them even worse) and when your family and friends tell you that it might be a good idea to take a day off you laugh at them

  8. You know you are a crossfitter when:
    You wear a wig to liven up your 0530 class
    When you are in the middle of a workout thinking this isn’t any Cindy or Jan I know this is just a dang B!@ch!
    You go from no jump roping skills to a “giddyup” :0)
    Farting haven’t had to worry about…sharting a whole nother story
    When someone goes to shake your hand and you have to turn your whole body because your arm won’t straighten out after a kazillion pullups
    And the best. You know you are a crossfitter when:
    When you are struggling through a workout and your teammates are calling your name encouraging you to keep going
    and on another day when you have the priviledge of doing the same for them

  9. You know your a crossfitter when your gone for a few months and you miss it so much, you try to do the workouts on your own, and finally just give in a come back, cause it just ain’t the same.
