You know you're a Crossfitter when you go to a junkyard and Home Depotto find/build exercise equipment (Giant Tire, Wheel barrel, Sledgehammer, odd objects to lift and throw, etc.)

You Know you're a C'fitter when you keep a door gym chinning bar in your office desk draw.

I work for a commercial furniture dealer, and the last time I went to our warehouse, I got the idea of installing a climbing rope there, because they have a high ceiling. I'm always looking for high ceilings. Of course, they wouldn't go for it.

I've also done many pullups on playground equipment while my kids were playing.

I'm also the only guy in my gym who does laps around the building, and damn near hurls on the backside every time.

I'm also the only guy who does: wall ball, 1hand/2 hand Power Cleans/Snatches, Bent/Side presses, Kettlebell anything, Zuerchers, L Pullups, Tabatas, and Ring Dips.

When you wanna aggrovate someone, you "Pie" their house instead of egg it since you know the eggs are so good for you.

... someone looks at your arms and says, "wow, how much weight can you curl?" and you reply, "don't know, never done one."

...PR's are broken every month.

...your clothes are tighter in all the righter places even though you are getting ripped.

...gym rats watch skeptically as you load 10 plates (45 lbs ea), onto the Hammerstrength Incline Press, only to look doubfunded at you rep it. realize that gym rat bodybuilders are really dinosaurs

...when you don't think pain and vomit are signals for you to stop.

...when you lock yourself out, you knock the door down instead of hiring a locksmith.

...when your suitcase has wheels you still can't help carrying it.

...when your hands get tired from carrying that same suitcase you carry it like a Husafell stone.

This may not be appropriate, what what the heck..

... when you smile as you overhear your girlfriend recalling to her friends how you two had sex the previous night against the wall.. and her feet never touched the ground.
