“Impossible to Describe”
(Or, how not to explain Crossfit to your friends)
By Dr. Mike Cutatia
Sometimes, a friend will ask me what exactly do we do in the gym. One of my responses goes like this: “We are two sled-dogs lead by a smiling musher (David or Noah) with a whip…” Usually, this is followed by a prolonged silence, and I know that once again I have screwed up recruiting someone into Crossfit. Oh well. I happen to think that’s very descriptive and accurate (except for the whip part…). Its a good thing I don’t work for an advertising firm. I would be the anti-Christ of product sales. A short, but happy career.
How about this alternative: “Our coaches delight in thinking up weird positions to get into, or impossible movements to perform in the shortest amount of time. Imagine thirty people in a room wrestling with bars, plates, ropes, balls, until they are ready to puke”. Actually, I have not seen anyone puke in our gym-except David. I will never forget this. He went running past me one day out the front of the gym with a gastrointestinal face of pure agony. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry with him.
or this:“There are all these people sweating, grunting, and groaning in pain while lifting and banging down heavy things … “. That’s quite accurate, don’t you think? Now, speaking personally, if anyone every described their gym to me like that I would run, not walk, to find out what the heck was going on in a place like that.
But, sometimes, I just mumble-“its impossible to describe”-and walk away.
