We are all envious of Maddie’s PERFECT squat.

You know you are a CrossFitter when…

  • At least 50% of your Facebook posts are about CrossFit.
  • Your shins have more scrapes than a twelve year old boy.
  • You know better than to say, “That looks easy”.
  • You’ve spent HOURS watching videos of other people working out (who does that?).
  • CrossFit t-shirts dominate your wardrobe.
  • When you travel, your first concern is if there is a local affiliate close by.
  • Refresh is your favorite button after 9pm.
  • 3 on 1 off takes priority in your schedule.
  • The words Snatch and Jerk have lost there comedic value, but farting while deadlifting has not.
  • There are days you have to talk yourself OUT of going to the gym because it’s a rest day and that means you are suppose to rest, right? You are confused at this and ask your coach if you can still go for a run.  When they tell you rest means rest, still confused, you ask if that means you should do nothing or could you do…?
  • You can relate to this sentence “I feel like a GD Navy Seal and an Olympic Gold Medalist wrapped in a F-ing suit of body armor”.
  • You shave your hands.
  • Pain is a relative term.
  • You know what this stands for IWCABTAMD.
  • You know the ten general skills by heart and can recite them at social gatherings.
  • You have posted pictures of yourself working out on Facebook. A lot of pictures.
  • You believe in sweat angels.
  • You’ve looked up the criteria for the Nobel peace prize to see if you can nominate Coach Glassman.
  • Tape and chalk are at a premium.
  • You used to bite your nails and now you pick at your callouses.
  • Almond butter is the nectar of the Gods.
  • You know that the benchmark WOD’s are named after real people and you would find it interesting to talk with some of them and find out WHY? 
  • You think in blocks not calories.
  • Fat is delicious, you laugh at fat free.
  • You don’t remember what it is like to have mirrors in your gym.  
  • You know that a 70%+ dark chocolate bar can sub as 3 blocks carbs.
  • You must workout with loud obnoxious music, but never hear a word of it.
  • You consider other CrossFitters family.
  • You believe the world would be a better place if everyone was a CrossFitter.

And a couple of announcements for you:

Next Foundations Program starts TONIGHT at 7pm.  This class will meet Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays during each week, with a limited number of people per class.  There is a total of six (6) classes that will need to be completed in order to then sign-up for membership. 

Next Free Community WOD is Saturday, August 30 at 8AM.  Sign up on MBO.  If you’re looking to try CrossFit Verve out for the first time, here is your chance.  Come join us and learn about constantly varied functional movements done at high intensity.  The workouts are scaled and modified to each athlete’s level and performed at the highest intensity that the individual can sustain with good form and proper technique.

Community WODs are open to our members to bring family and friends or athletes looking to check out Verve.  Different WOD each class, not the WOD for the day.
