The Shirt: ABC’s Of Fitness


Many people forget, or don’t know, that the Girl Workouts are named alphabetically, like hurricanes, and are the classic Benchmarks of CrossFit. Pictured above is the screen that was used to make the shirt.

Why Are The Benchmarks Named After Girls?

To quote Coach Glassman, “Anything that leaves you flat on your back and incapacitated only to lure you back for more at a later date.”

Why Are They The ABC’s of Fitness

They embody the idea of CrossFit. To quote Coach Glassman again, “If you are improving at these, you are becoming fitter.”

The Design and Shirt

Simple and to the point. Next to each workout is the amount of posts CrossFittters around the world have posted. Yup, over 20k for fran and 15k for Helen and Cindy. CrossFitters are awesome. We went with American Apparel 50/50 Poly-Cotton blend shirt.

These pieces are comprised of our distinct 50/50 Poly-Cotton blend. Unlike other Poly-Cotton t-shirts on the market, ours is made with combed cotton, giving it an ultra soft, worn in feel and superior drape. Even finer than traditional combed-cotton yarn, this ultra-comfortable fabric features remarkable recovery even after repeated washings. Slightly more opaque than our Sheer Jersey yet still lightweight, these shirts offer a versatile surface perfect for screen printing and embellishment. -American Apparel

Our t-shirt guy actually told us that no one gives these shirts out for free, but we reminded him how great our users are. The back of the shirt has our new logo and date. We put the date on the back because we will never print these shirts in the future, and want you guys to have exclusive gear. Look forward to meeting you guys.
