We like to celebrate our coach's birthdays with fun workouts written specifically for them! We also like to send athletes off with goodbye workouts when they have to move. CrossFit also has a whole archive of Benchmark and Hero workouts that are known and done throughout the CrossFit gym world. Have an idea for a workout? We'd love to program it!
You can find a list of CrossFit Benchmark workouts here.
Some of the most well-known workouts are "Fran", "Murph", "Helen", "Cindy", and "Annie". Many CrossFit athletes can tell you their times from these workouts by memory, but we also encourage everyone to track their results in a journal or in our app Beyond the Whiteboard (btwb).
The beauty of CrossFit workouts is that we can track our progress. "Overall, the aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness supported by measurable, observable and repeatable results."
