Why Crossfitters Talk About Crossfit So Much
Rogue Fitness

Have you ever heard the joke, "an atheist, a vegan, and a crossfitter walk into a bar... I only know this because they told everyone within two minutes?" Well I have and one thing I know for sure is that it's not true… well sometimes it is true. Being a crossfitter myself, I found that it's incredibly hard to not talk about it. I’m new to the sport I started all of a month and a half ago and I told myself “I’m not going to be one of those people who always talks about crossfit” and here I am… talking about crossfit. One thing a lot of people don’t understand is how hard it is to not talk about something that is a huge part of your life. Somehow everything goes back to crossfit when you do crossfit.

Since I started doing crossfit it has become a huge part of my life. Aside from working at the gym I spend a majority of my time there training. I'm there every day so when people want to make plans I usually say, "Well I have crossfit at 3:30, can we go after?" Also when people ask: Why are you so sore? Crossfit. Why are your hands ripped up? Crossfit. My personal favorite is: why are your legs bruised? It's from the barbell I use... during crossfit. Those are all questions I get in one day. It's not as easy to not talk about it as everyone thinks.

Crossfit is not like going to the gym every day where it's nothing special to talk about. It's like athletes not talking about what sports they play. We watch it, talk about it, live it, and breathe it because we want to get better at it just like other athletes do. Crossfitters are athletes and last time I checked no one gives athletes a hard time because they talk about their sport, we are just as passionate about crossfit as they are about their sport.

Also we talk about crossfit so much because it's actually the sickest thing in the world. We do what most people do in an hour in the gym in 20 minutes. I've never felt so powerful or badass until I started doing crossfit. Have you seen what they do? They literally climb up a wall using pegs, lift ridiculous amounts of weight, climb ropes without using their feet to help. If I can do something I wasn’t able to do a month ago I want to tell people about it. It's the most intense workout/sport out there. You never really think it would be addicting until you do it. I’m lifting weight that I never thought I could. I’m doing pull ups, which I could never do even when I was little.

We are proud of what we do. We do a lot of things a lot of people can’t do. We’re not talking about it so much to brag or to show we’re “better” than other people, we talk about it because were proud, we’re passionate, and because we love it. There’s no better feeling than cleaning more weight than you did last week or finishing a benchmark workout faster than the last time you did it. Everyone I train with are the best people I’ve met. Next time you meet a crossfitter, remember that we are normal people, we just love what we do.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
