The Shirt: ABCs of Fitness 2012

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 last year’s shirt(black) with this year’s shirt(red).

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. As you can see the numbers increased a lot from last year(We passed 3 million results). The amount of Benchmark Workouts(Girl Workouts) results, in our opinion, correlate to the rapidly growing CrossFit world. Hence, we decided to begin an annual tradition of making a limited run of the shirt as a reflection of our thriving community.

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

Dated?

We put the date on the back of the shirt and don’t plan on printing more in the future. We wanted to create the classic concert shirt feel. That shirt you keep around for years because it reminds you of a certain event in your life. So if you are at the games, stop by and grab your swag bag. Free for any beyond the whiteboard member.
