Rather than just having one Crossfit Workout this month, we’re going to list a collection of the ‘Girls’ Workouts of the Day’. Many ask Greg Glassman, founder and President of Crossfit, “Why are the workouts named after Girls?” , he explains “I thought that anything that left you flat on your back, looking up at the sky asking ‘what just happened to me?’ deserved a females name.  Workouts are just like storms, they wreak havoc on towns.”
