Does your best friend or loved one spend countless hours at the gym? Does he constantly say things like “I crushed that WOD, can’t wait for the next one!” – which leaves you feeling both proud and confused. For those that don’t speak CrossFit, a WOD is the “Workout of the Day,” a term used to describe the different workout that you’ll do in different CrossFit classes. Along with the lingo, there are a few important pieces of equipment that make a CrossFitter’s day at the gym slightly different to everyone else. But, that makes it easier to shop for them this holiday season. Here are 10 gift ideas for guys who love CrossFit:
