We have all been there.

You’re standing in class, and the coach is giving instructions on the workout but it is like they are speaking in a foreign language. You want to try to understand but they are dropping acronyms and you can’t keep up. You’ll have to Google it after class, but that won’t help you now…

Or, you’ve been in the game for a bit now and you’ve got it down for the most part. But every once in a while you find that you are following along but don’t know what the words everyone is using actually stand for.

We’re here to help! Every fitness style has it’s own set of terms and phrases that mean nothing to anyone else, and at the School of Fitness a lot of those words happen to be CrossFit related. Here is a refresher course for the veterans and a handy guide for the newbies with the most commonly dropped words. No extra Googling needed!
