You Might be a Crossfitter…

If you have to shave your hands …you might be a Crossfitter.

If you own a Lululemon anything… you might be a Crossfitter

If you anxiously await the WOD to be posted for the following day…you might be a Crossfitter

If your non-crossfitting friends look at you like you have a 3rd eyeball in the middle of your forehead when you tell them what your workout was…you might be a Crossfitter.

If you’re 100% paleo 50% of the time…you might be a Crossfitter.

If you judge the difficulty of a workout by whether or not you felt like you were actually going to vomit…you might be a Crossfitter.

If you feel butterflies in your stomach when you hear “3-2-1 GO”…you might be a Crossfitter.

If you take pride in leaving a sweat angel…you might be a Crossfitter.

If you refer to said sweat angel as “liquid awesome”…you might be a Crossfitter.

If rope climbs=ridiculously patterned knee socks…you might be a Crossfitter.

If you like hearing the sound of weights slamming on the ground…you might be a Crossfitter.

If you can’t dress or undress yourself properly because you’re so sore…you might be a Crossfitter.

If you bleed during a WOD, you might be a Crossfitter..

If you have to explain bruises to your co-workers…you might be a Crossfitter.

If you know what rhabdo means and you are afraid of it…you might be a Crossfitter.

If you HAVE to use the handicapped bathroom because you NEED the railing to lower yourself to and assist in getting off the toilet…you might be a Crossfitter.

If you have a tattoo or piercing of some sort…you might be a Crossfitter..

If you have had your ego checked by a WOD that swiftly kicked your ass…you might be a Crossfitter..

I’m sure there are many more I have missed and/or forgotten to mention. I love the fact that Crossfitters are not defined by any one stereotype. We are from all walks of life, enjoy different aspects of our workouts, have different careers, have different athletic backgrounds, even. The one thing that does define us unilaterally is that we all love our community and embrace the differences we all bring to the table.

I AM A CROSSFITTER!! And I am damn proud of it!
