Happy Holidays, from WODDITY

Hey there, friend and podcast listener. This is Ben Garves from the WODDITY Podcast for news about CrossFit. As you can imagine, there wasn’t much in the way of breaking news on this Christmas day. But, whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Solstice, Ramadan, or any other belief system I apologize for missing, I wish you the best.

We talk all the time about CrossFit being a community. We support each other in the gym. We support each other on the field and on the competition floor. We cheer for weight loss, first muscle-ups, and personal achievements, that first consecutive double-under, and bonding over watching Mat Fraser tie Rich Froning’s four-peat.

We transcend seven continents and a space station, communicate between countless languages, and universally get destroyed by burpees. We are each others’ family. We are each others’ friends. So from affiliate to affiliate, garage to garage, me to you, happy holidays.
