CFZ Christmas Party and the Second Annual Merry Fucking Christmas Ugly Sweater WOD

By December 17, 2014 wod No Comments

We’ve got a big week ahead, with a Christmas party and an Ugly Sweater WOD on tap. Let’s find out more about each, shall we?

The CFZ Christmas Party

The Christmas Party starts at 7:00 PM this Friday. Here are the main points you need to know about it to get ready:

  • It’s a potluck, so bring something good! We have a sign-up whiteboard right when you walk in the door. You don’t necessarily have to be specific on the sign-up, but at least put your name in a category so if we have ten people listed under “alcohol,” someone will realize they should bring some food instead. Paleo-friendly is good, but remember there are many of us who aren’t on the paleo bandwagon. No matter what you make, someone will probably eat it. Best bet: make something you want to eat – then you know at least one person will be happy.
  • Dress however you want. There won’t be a workout, and we’re not the Ritz. So you don’t have to wear clothes you’re not afraid to sweat in (like the Ritz) and you don’t have to dress to the nines. Just be comfortable. And warm. Layering will still be important.
  • There will be a grab bag gift exchange. $25 max on the gift. Last year we had everything from the ultra-useful and awesome to… well, you’ve seen the top of our tree, right?
  • While we’re talking about the CFZ tree and gifts, bring along an ornament for our sad, sad little naked tree. It’ll make the tree look better and you’ll have a permanent place in CFZ history, assuming something horrible doesn’t happen to the ornament box.
  • Roll your brain around in the gutter beforehand. Yep, Cards Against Humanity will be played. Time to find out just what horrible people we all are.

Merry Fucking Christmas Ugly Sweater WOD

On the Saturday after the Christmas party, we’ll have our annual Merry Fucking Christmas Ugly Sweater WOD. It kicks off at 9:00 AM and will be the only class of the day. The same Halloween WOD costume rules apply to crafting your ugly sweater:

  • Your sweater must be worn through the entire workout to be eligible for the “Ugliest Sweater” award. So think about burpees and situps and running around and suck before you start attaching all of those decorations.
  • NO. FUCKING. GLITTER. That’s actually a standing rule here at CFZ (which SOME people forgot) : no craft herpes allowed in the gym. Tinsel barely passes muster, but be prepared to clean up after yourself.
  • Bring your friends. It’ll be a fun time and a team WOD and free for everyone. If you’re a 3x per week-er and always wanted to see what this place looks like on Saturday, come on down. Have a friend who think all CrossFit is what they see on ESPN? You’re required to drag them to this workout – they’ll see we’re far from what they see on TV.
