TUES 11.15.16 “Nasty Women”

Jeannette and Ashley leading the team on the run.


The Girls

Many have asked, “Why are the workouts named after Girls?” According to the National Weather Service theuse of “short, distinctive given names in written as well as spoken communications is quicker and less subject to error” than “more cumbersome” identification methods, so since 1953 storms have been assigned female given names. Coach Glassman, the founder and President of CrossFit explained it best. “I want to explain the workout once and then give it a name. I thought that anything that left you flat on your back, looking up at the sky asking ‘what just happened to me?’ deserved a females name. Workouts are just like storms, they wreak havoc on towns.”

Only by repeating workouts can we confidently measure our progress. We’ve chosen to repeat those workouts most challenging, formative, and expressive of the CrossFit fitness ideal, and these ladies fit the bill. These workouts come with a blend of elegance, simplicity, form, and impact. They can be nasty! But they get the job done, making us fitter as we improve our performance.

The Girls! Workouts with a blend of elegance, simplicity, form, and impact. They can be nasty! But they get the job done, making us fitter as we improve our performance.
