Are you a CrossFitter? 10 signs you are….

Clare, owning that rope climb!

  1. you bulk cook your meals for the week, so that you don’t have to risk losing any gains in that all important post workout window…..
  2. tried a bulletproof coffee (and told everyone it was awesome even if you didn’t like it…)  You may also have tried eating pork crackling, offal, marrow, bone broth and a lot of kale…..
  3. changed shoes during a workout (nanos for the warmup, then Olys for the strength piece then hybrids for the metcon, then back to nanos to do mobility…..)
  4. travelled across a major city just to get a CrossFit Tshirt
