I’ve been there. I’m at the grocery store picking up some food when I glance at a car in the parking lot and see the telltale sign. This car has a CrossFit 317 sticker. I have to find this person and say hi!
I’m leaving a hotel when I see a group of people all wearing t-shirts or jackets that say “Rogue” on the side. I have to stop myself from striking up conversation with my fellow warriors in the CrossFit culture battle or I hear the battle cry: “Femstrong!” and I immediately know they are part of my tribe.
It’s easy to spot a CrossFitter and more importantly, a CrossFit 317 member, and not just because most of us wear shirts emblazoned with the proud “CrossFit” logo on both sides. When you find them, you know you’ve found family. It’s like the way people from other cultures find each other and live next door in the United States, even if they don’t actually know each other. These are their people. And, friends, fellow CrossFitters and CrossFit 317 members are my people.
So these are just a few of the CrossFit 317 trends I thought lovingly of when considering my fellow 317 family. Yes, CrossFitters have their own language and their own trends but they are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met and certainly a great inspiration for others to treat your body well and have fun doing it.
