If you’re coming to paintball, meet us there at 11:45. It’s called Mission Paintball on 47423 Homestead Rd. It’s cash only! Prices are here.

For those of you that will not be joining us, here’s something to make you smile.

You know you’re a CrossFitter when…

…you don’t own a tractor but you own tractor tires.
…helping people move turns into a metcon WOD.
…every time you go to Home Depot, you are looking for the exercise potential of equipment rather than stuff for your home.
…you go to buy a swiss ball, and the salesperson goes into their spiel about the comfortable feel of the rubber and how easy it is on your back for doing crunches, and you interrupt them and ask, “Ya…but how much will it weigh when I fill it full of sand?”
…when you pick your cubicle at work because of it’s hand-stand practice potential.
…when you get married, you register at Rogue Fitness.
…your steering wheel and radio controls are covered in chalk…
…when you think it’s cool your wife/gf is purposefully scraping her hands with a cheese-grater implement.
…when you laugh at almost all the exercises normal people say they do at the gym.
…when you wake up at 5am to do an 8 minute workout.
…you can tell a woman she has a great snatch and not get slapped.
…the first Japanese word that comes into your mind is Tabata
…you constantly drag your kids to the playground then challenge them to various monkey bar races.
…a holiday is just an opportunity to get that glamourous handstand photo backdrop
…your shins have more scrapes than a twelve year old boy.
…CrossFit t-shirts dominate your wardrobe.
…the words Snatch and Jerk have lost there comedic value, but farting while deadlifting has not.
…pain is a relative term.
…you have posted pictures of yourself working out on Facebook.
…you have an appreciation for the sweat angels you leave on the floor.
…you consider other CrossFitters family.
…you start doing common household tasks “for time”
…you can go home and tell your wife you did Jackie, Helen, Fran etc.. this afternoon and not get in trouble.
…you’re a man and own knee socks.

Can you add anything to this list?

    …you don’t own a farm, but you have more goats then someone who does own one
    … the words 4 cycle metcon WOD actually mean something to you
    … you can actually use sit-ups as an excuse for the chafed skin on your ass

    Hehehe 🙂 I’m definitely a crossfitter and proud to be one!

    Have fun at paintball everyone!

    Oh yes, good point – when I’m in a conversation anywhere other than at CrossFit, I find myself avoiding to say the c word. And when I do say it I feel like I should do 10 burpees!

    You’re a Crossfitter when:
    …When you say the c-word outside of the gym you actually sigh and start to do them due to reflex…
    …you have more calluses on your hands than a farmer…
    …parties take on a whole new meaning when someone decides to box jump something…
    …you realise there is so much more in life and the world becomes your jungle gym…

    …when CrossFit is the first website you check each morning… you check several times throughout the day…. and it’s the last one you check before you go to sleep.

      Sorry for the mark of affection Jeff…. I wasn’t trying to hit your neck… I was just trying to hit you…. well… Success!
      Hope it’s not too painful tomorrow.
      Great time today everyone!
