CrossFit Terms and Jargon

Its been just over a month that I joined my local Norcal Crossfit Box ‘gym’ (Crossfit Workout gym is called a Box). When I first walked inside, I saw mostly white boards, scribbled with various terms, and numbers that were hard to decipher.

Over a month, I did learn few terms and did google up few. Here is my work in progress list:

There are plenty of terms, and you can get a big list online, but these are very basic terms mostly used. Feel free to add more in the comments section.

  • WOD – Workout Of the Day  (the actual workout that is designed to crush you :))
  • AMRAP – As Many Reps As Possible (As Many Rounds As Possible) in given time.
  • RX’ed – As Prescribed, there is no change in the workout that can be done.
  • EMOM – Each Minute Over Minute. You do the round every minute.
  • Rep – Repetition.
  • PB – Personal Best
  • PR – Personal Record
  • Box – A Crossfit Gym

Plenty of online resources, but I do refer this- Crossfit
