There are many other workouts, such as Hero WODs and Tributes, which are named after females, but “The Girls” are a special group of CrossFit benchmark workouts.
Why girls’ names? CrossFit founder Greg Glassman gave his workouts names because he wanted to “explain the workout once and then give it a name.” The original workouts were given female names, similar to how the US National Weather Service names storms, because he felt that because the workouts were so physically demanding that they left athletes feeling as though a storm hit them.
