You know, we’re always here for you and sometimes we worry about you, too.


A number of articles have been written about the ‘addictiveness’ of CrossFit so it seemed like a good time to see how you’re doing with your ‘addiction’. Maybe it’s time to check off the signs you’re currently seeing in yourself, friends or loved ones?


Interventions are always available … just sayin’ …


  1. Most of your Facebook pics involve a barbell and a snarl.
  2. The first thing you do in the morning is check the WOD.
  3. Reading the word burpees can ruin your entire day.
  4. You can’t start anything without hearing 3..2..1 Go!
  5. You’ve compared shin bruises and rope burns with a friend.
  6. You categorize your friends by “Crossfitters” and “Others”.
  7. You use the term Rx more frequently than pharmacists.
  8. You’ve avoided shaking hands with someone because of your shredded palms.
  9. You’ve spend more than one Friday night at home shaving your calluses.
  10.  If you meet someone named Fran you’ll involuntarily throw up a little.
  11.  If your house caught on fire the first thing you’d grab is your custom jump rope.
  12.  You’re only at the gym for an hour, but you’ll change shoes twice.
  13.  Your friends or family have staged an intervention. The words ‘cult’ or ‘Kool-Aid’ were used. (But you don’t even DRINK Kool-Aid because it’s not Paleo.)
  14.  You no longer have to ask ‘Is this Paleo?’ (But you do anyway.)
  15.  Bacon, bacon, bacon, bacon.
  16.  You’ve imagined a scenario where you’d have to do handstand push ups or muscle-ups to survive.
  17.  There’s no such thing as too much chalk.
  18. You have serious internal thoughts regarding thump placement.
  19. You know there was a time when you weren’t sore, scraped and bruised, but you can’t remember it anymore.
  20. You’re totally fine with wearing shin skins outside the gym.
  21.  You’ve seriously consider a tattoo of a kettlebell.
  22.  You know for a fact that taking your shirt off makes you faster.
  23.  Grocery shopping involves 2 different grocery stores and a farmers market.
  24. You wouldn’t know how to date someone who doesn’t CrossFit.
  25. People don’t have to ask you if you’re obsessed with CrossFit because you happily tell them.
