Just wanted to amke things lively so care to add on to it....

You know you're a crossfitter if..
You dread girls whose names are Elizabeth, Chelsea, Barbara, Angie, Fran, Annie and Angie

The first Japanese word that comes into your mind is Tabata

If you can't park your car in the garage.

The is a tire and sledge hammer in the back/front yard.

You feel the need to climb, jump, press and push EVERYTHING

you reach the point where a "rest day" means working on pullups, dips, and L-sits

You are more fit than any of your gym-dwelling friends and family.

...you constantly stop when passing a playground, then are grumpy the rest of the day 'cause all the bars were too low.

...you take a half day off just to shovel the snow off your driveway, for time, when you could've just hopped in the Jeep and drove through it.

And...you use your steering wheel for isometrics on your morning commute.

...if you have dreams of Tyler's rings coming in the mail and then Russ Greene jumps in the dream and mocks your inability to hold the false grip and do a muscle up on your new rings. (I have no idea what I may have eaten that night to have a dream like that)

People gaze at you the neighborhood gym with looks of utter horror.

You tick-off Bobby McBenchpress because, yes...you really DO need all three oly bars so you can 'blast-through for time.'

You pity Mr. McBenchpress and offer enlightenment.

You discover that Mr. McBenchpress is a HS Football Strength Coach.

You taunt Mr. McBenchpress by asking "So, tell me about how well your team runs the 'benchpress' and 'bicep curl' plays from scrimmage.

You continue to pitty Mr. McBenchpress as he glares at you...while cranking off kipping pullups. He then asks why you "cheat and use a narrow grip."

You ask the owner of the gym if he would consider purchasing things like GHD's, rings, slam balls and kettle bells...and he asks you "what are you talking about?"

You constantly drag your kids to the playground then challenge them to various monkey bar races.

You keep in mind exactly where, how far away, and how much time it will take to get to the nearest trash can in the gym...just in case.

LOL!! Nice Rob!


You know you're a crossfitter when ...

- people ask if you need the chinup bar before they start using it.

- you measure progress by timing how long it takes before you puke.

- someone asks if they should call 911 after Fran kicks your ***.
