Since starting CrossFit, I have been lucky enough to compete in several local competitions with friends from my box. I’ve participated in 6-person teams, 4-person teams, 2-person teams and as an individual. If you’ve ever signed up for a competition, you know that you need to think long and hard about a good team name. Because when you get to the event, the emcee will be announcing your name several times during the day. While you could go with your box’s name to represent where you’re coming from, it can be fun to choose a name that will get a good laugh from the audience of CrossFitters in the room. Below is a list of funny and clever team names that I’ve seen throughout my involvement in local competitions. Feel free to change them up or use them for one of your upcoming CrossFit team competitions!

I wouldn’t say that my diet is a typical crossfit diet because of some of my food choices, but I think the logic behind the diet I follow and a paleo or zone are similar. I don’t really think that one diet is better than the other, everyone should find what works for themselves. I don’t think any one diet can be applied to a group of athletes. There are too many factors in a  diet that will determine if it will be the most effective diet for the individual. For example; energy system efficiency, hormone levels and metabolism (age, gender, body fat, etc all play roles), and food allergies, etc.  will play a huge role in the ratio of macros that a person should take in to perform there best.

The Paleo Diet as the “foundation diet” of the CrossFit community is inaccurate. If there is a “foundation diet” for the CrossFit community it would be the Zone Diet. The Paleo Diet is popular, but there are so many versions of what is accepted and what is not that most CrossFitters understand how to personalize their diet for their specific needs. Besides “Paleo” and Zone, crossfitters follow Primal, Eat to Perform, IIFYMs, Precision Nutrition, and others I’m sure I either don’t know about or am forgetting to mention. Suffice to say that crossfitters with auto-immune issues tend to follow Paleo strictly while the more competitive crossfitters adjust by measuring and consuming more carbs than their “strict” brethren.
