Twas the night before CrossFitmas, all through CFM,
Not a creature was stirring, not even Big Jim.
The stockings were hung by the pro shop with care,
In hopes Better-Than-Sex cake soon would be there.

The members were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of jello shots danced in their heads.
And Dyer in his sweat puddle, and Uran in knee socks,
Had just settled in to decorate the box.

When out on West Peachtree arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the AirDyne to see what was the matter.
Out front to the street I crawled like a bear,
Seeking Santas in speedos and red underwear!

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
I was expecting to find running holiday sweaters,
But instead saw these bad ass CrossFit competitors,

Pulling a sleigh carrying such a quick man,
I knew in a moment it must be Coach Dan.
More rapid than pumas his prowlers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;

“Now, Austin! now, Ellen! now, Tirzah, Shay and Krystol Hines!
On, Carlos! on Brianne! on Dave, Matt and Arielle Fine!
Go crush the competition and give it your all!
Dash away to CFHD and have a ball!”

Dan sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
“We’ll be back for the holiday party tonight!”

CrossFitmas weekend events:

Fri @ 7pm: CrossFitMas Eve burpees. Immediately following the 6pm class, join Lis as she makes good on her losing bet to Levy over the SEC Championship game’s outcome. Lis will don Crimson Tide gear as she performs 100 burpees. Hopefully the mediocre attire doesn’t slow her down.
Sat 9a-4p: Cheer on our CFM teams (Arielle, Brianne, Carlos, Dave, Ellen, Tirzah, Austin, Krystol, Matt & Shay) at the Atlanta Affiliate League Team Invitational at CrossFit HD in Chamblee.
Sat 1:30-3p: Join the CFM Bacon Cheer Station to cheer on the Atlanta Santa Speedo runners as they dash past the gym! The run is at 2. Meet us at the gym between 1:30 & 3. We’ll be blasting some tunes & handing out bacon and candy canes.
Sun @ 11am: Touch football in Piedmont Park. Join us at the Active Oval to play touch football Sunday morning. No experience required… but shoes are recommended (especially after consulting the shoe hero).

That’s all. Nothing else this weekend.

NO! WAIT! THERE’S MORE!

CFM’s CrossFitmas Party is Sat from 7 to 10 in the box. We’ll provide the main course and some drinks. You bring an appetizer or dessert to share. Feel free to bring friends & family. We hope you can join us. ***Overflow parking will be available in the New-South-Construction-marked spots in the pay lot at 13th & West Peachtree.

The CFM team wishes you a happy holiday season and we hope you can join us this weekend at our CrossFitmas party… 7 to 10 pm at the gym (in case you live under a kettlebell and missed all the other announcements).

    1. Brianne Elaine Verraneault

      I feel so honored to make your amazing ode Lis 🙂 I know my name Brianne rhymes with so many things! Hahaha – great post too btw 🙂 I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE HOLIDAY PARTY! SHOT SHOT SHOT SHOT SHOT SHOT SHOT SHOT – EVERYBODY. If I write an ode for jello shots will you post it?

  8. Yeah for ChrisFitMas Eve burpees! All are welcome to come join in the viewing party at 7. Lynn Suzanne, with such confidence that you display in your team, perhaps you'd like to make a similar bet?

    1. Simmer down, Levy! Didnt one of your fans just get prison time for the krystals teabag incident? #classy I dont bet on ND ever. Troy will bring down the house and cover a spread though. #teoforheisman

    2. Yes but I'm not sure how you got from burpees to teabags. I guess these are things on your mind somehow! Also not sure why you're willing to talk the talk but not walk the walk. Don't worry, Lis will help coach you through the burpees. Roll Tide!

  9. "The moon on the breast of new fallen snow" – I'm sure there is some sort of dirty meaning buried in here.

    Good luck competitors! Have fun out there!

    Uran and I are still accepting applications for the party set up/ass kicking committee. I'll be getting cranked up at around 2:30 with some weightlifting and decorating. If you want to join in the action, show up then or earlier if committee co-chair Uran is going to get started before me. Uran, what time are you getting underway?
