Who needs a vacation?


I'm on vacation this week and most people on vacation would have the good sense to sleep in and get some rest but not yours truly. I still got up at 5am and hit the box at 6. Why, might you ask? Because I like working out with my 6am crew. I've been working out with these guys for a couple of years now and it never gets old. 6am class is fun because no one screws around since we all have jobs to get to. Also we are all kinda slap happy from being up so early I think. The class is really diverse athletically and in my opinion it makes for a better class. Here is how 6am rolls:

The Football Team: We have a few "big men" and by big I mean I'm nice to them because they could literally rip my arms off at the sockets. These guys deadlift 500+ and make the gym shake when they drop heavy cleans. Also they really come in handy when you have a flat tire and can't find your jack.

The Met-con'ers: I fall into this group. There are two kinds of Met-con'ers. Those that Rx and those that don't. I personally work under the theory that if you are using the women's Rx, then it is still considered Rx'ing. I love a good loophole....

The Cheerleaders: These are the guys that tell you how you are doing intra-WOD by saying things like "That's awesome!" or "You're a beast". Technically the general rule of a WOD is no intra-WOD talk allowed unless of course it is cursing, sarcasm or smack talk. I am a master of all three...

The Pop-ins: These are the guys that come in once maybe twice a week. We don't have many of these but it's fun when they are there because they look miserable. I get an odd amusement from watching people look like they are about to pass out...

The Newbies: We have a few of these and they will all graduate from this pretty soon to one of the other groups. It's still fun to watch them join the class because we were all there at one point. No one works harder and has more determination than a "Newbie"...

People often ask me "How can you get up at 5am everyday to go workout?".  I tell them all the same thing. It's easy. I go to see my friends. Now if you will excuse me, it's time for my first nap of the day...
