Jody found this one for us (thanks Jody!).  And it is pretty funny, but I'd like it much better with one small change, and it's not that they spelled CrossFit as two words... see below.

... Luckily, I don't hear it much at our gym, but I'd like to formally ask all of our members to not treat the word CrossFit as a verb.  Drives me nuts.  You "do CrossFit"... you do not "CrossFit".  Similarly, I'd also suggest that no one use the acronym WOD as a verb either.  Also drives me nuts.  It's like okay, you're too cool to say the word workout, got it... But, I don't really ever hear this at our gym either, so consider this like a preemptive strike.  Okay thanks in advance! :)


9am Oly WOD

A. hang clean high pulls: 3-3-3-3-3; rest as needed

B. sq clean + hang sq clean: build to a heavy set


10am Class WOD 

A. 15 min handstand walk practice

B. 21-15-9 reps for time:

  • hang squat snatch (75/45)
  • cal row

It drives me nuts when people use the word "verb" (like anyone knows what that even is?)...and "preemptive strike" oh, and the worst one is .."drives me nuts" However I do like the word "formally"

can't wait to crossfit today, wonder what the WOD is ..(you'll just have to picture me saying it)

Sully, apparently it's true, no one does know what a verb is. You know, since you attempted to use WOD as one and yet still used it as a noun. Good try though.
