    20 Ways To Know You're A Crossfitter

    It's a language all your own.

    1. You understand what acronyms like WOD and AMRAP stand for.

    Your non-Crossfit friends look at you weird when you use them too.

    2. Counting down backwards from 10 can only mean one thing.

    3, 2, 1, GO!

    3. You have suffered the lash marks associated with double unders.

    Via trojancrossfit.com

    Oh don't worry about those streaks up my legs, arms, butt, etc.

    4. Box jumps and shins don't always get along.

    Did that box just move?

    5. Fran can be one mean, mean lady.

    Via crossfit13stars.com

    If she takes a celebrity trainer to the brink, where will she take you?

    6. You're beginning to wonder how many other ways you could possibly "Sally Up."

    Via vimeo.com

    Your muscles will be singing at the two minute mark.

    7. Rich Froning and Annie Thorisdottir aren't human.

    How else do you win the Crossfit Games more than once?

    8. You know you are a part of a community.

    Via crossfit8035.com

    Someone is always there to cheer you on no matter if you are the first or last done.

    9. Chalk is your best friend.

    Via google.com

    Although your hands will inevitably still look like they went through a shredder.

    10. Achieving something like a muscle-up or a new PR can make your day.

    Via crossfitinvictus.com

    Mission accomplished.

    11. The importance of the right shoe cannot be stressed enough.

    Via stonewaycrossfit.com

    Running shoes need not apply. Reebok has the sponsorship, but others work great too.

    12. You love that you never do the same thing twice.

    Via breakingmuscle.com

    Goodbye treadmill. I won't miss you.

    13. One word: burpees.

    Via queenbeeberta.blogspot.com

    You mostly have a hate-hate relationship with them.

    14. You swear by the kip.

    Via carrotsncake.com

    Don't tell us it isn't hard.

    15. You know the importance of proper form.

    Via agymlife.com

    "No rep" are the worst words to hear.

    16. You have tried Paleo at some point in your life.

    Via alisocrossfit.com

    Whether it stuck or not is a different story.

    17. You can't remember the last time you weren't sore.

    Via trojancrossfit.com

    No pain, no gain right?

    18. You're in the best shape of your life.

    Via crossfittucker.com

    Stuff like olympic lifting, rope climbing and tire flipping will do that to a person.

    19. You tell EVERYONE you know about Crossfit.

    Via divorcedmoms.com

    Because lets be honest, we can't shut up about it.

    20. When a non-Crossfitter says it's just a fad workout, you KNOW they are wrong.
