'Twas the Night Before Christmas ….

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the gym

Not a creature was stirring, not even Tim;

The plates were all stacked by the barbells with care,

In hopes that weightlifters soon would be there;

The members were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of vegetables danced in their heads;

And Lola in her knee-socks, and I in my cap,

Had just downloaded workout songs, mostly bad rap,

When out in the lot there arose such a clatter,

I sprang from the office to see what was the matter.

Away to the bay door I flew like a flash,

Through open the lock and pulled it up fast.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow

Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,

But a John Henry push-sled stacked with plates to your ears,

With a rugged old power lifter, lively and quick,

I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.

Stronger than Ron Coleman and twice as great,

He whistled, and shouted, and called out “Light Weight!”;

From the top of the driveway! to the end of the street!

He pushed that sled around with lightning quick feet!”

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,

When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,

So out to the Interstate throwing sparks out the back,

With the sled stacked so heavy the roadway had cracked.

As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
I saw piles of new equipment spread over the ground.

And I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,

“Merry CrossFit to All and to All a

Good Night!”
