CrossFit has Ruined My Life…

Why CrossFit Ruined My Life: (found from

Dedicated to Greg Glassman, the man that ruined my life.

My WHOLE life I searched for a fitness that I couldn’t explain. I was always active, always “healthy”. I was a vegetarian for 16 years, because it was “healthy”. I ran, biked, climbed, surfed and lived a relatively balanced and happy lifestyle. Then I found

CrossFit and my life will never be the same….

Because of CrossFit, I will never eat Mung for dinner again (unless it’s a cheat meal). Mung is a delicious mixture of re fried beans, peppers, onions, cheese, and salsa cooked in a crock pot on low. I used homemade tortilla chips for dipping, cuz they are healthier then the store bought ones, right?

Because of CrossFit, normal everyday people just don’t look the same. When you are constantly surrounded by CrossFitters your perception of human anatomy is skewed. Too skinny is weak and too strong is slow.

Because of CrossFit, I believe all people are capable of amazing physical feats, when they don’t produce, I take it personally and have no tolerance for laziness.

Because of CrossFit, I will never be alone. There will always be friends I should spend time with, athletes I need train and new people I want to get to know.

Because of CrossFit, I may look amazing naked, however, damned if I can fit into normal girl clothes. Put me in yoga pants and I’ll knock your socks off. Send me on a mission to find a dress, pair of jeans or a feminine top and I’ll come home defeated. My wardrobe will forever consist of 90% t’shirts.

Because of CrossFit, I will spend at least half of my waking days lurking on websites, watching, learning, getting pumped up and being inspired. will be the first site I look at every morning and the last before bed. Why am I mesmerized by people working out. Damn you CrossFit.

Because of CrossFit, my hands will never be soft and silky. They will forever remain rough and coarse. They have become hands of capacity and are not for looks or ginger caressing.

Because of CrossFit, I will never be able to separate my health and fitness again. They will always be joined as one, interlocked in an intimate marriage of understanding. I have no excuses.

Because of CrossFit, people think I work out all day, deprive myself of sinful pleasures and am generally unfun (because their definition of fun has become so incompatible with mine)!

Because of CrossFit, I will never be satisfied with my fitness. There will always be something to achieve, something to try and something to “get better at”, nothing I can’t do!

Has CrossFit ruined your life?

    CrossFit has taken over my life because I look at the CrossFit website first thing in the morning!!!

    I’ll never again have soft & silky hands which I don’t mind because I can say “BOOM I DID WORK and have something to show for it”

    and last but not least:

    I’ll never be satisfied with my fitness because I know by recording all of my WODs I can look back and see that I have myself to compete against to PR on my next WOD every single day that I am a member of the BOX FAMILY!!!

    Thank you CFSF!!!
