No baby, Leave the Socks on
The first “No baby, Leave the Socks on” competition happened in the summer of 2011. We wanted to give our ladies a chance to compete in a competition especially designed for women only.
First we wanted to change the perception of what ladies fitness looks like and help foster a more positive self-image. One where athletism and capability trumped bodyweight and promoted the idea that “Strong is the new skinny”.
Second, we wanted it to be a ton of fun!
We made the events exciting with Car pulls, Deadlift ladders and Atlas stones. Our ladies loved showing their strength.
We only have one requirement. You have to wear weightlifting socks. Booty shorts were optional. That’s when we came up with the tongue in cheek name for the competition: No baby, Leave the Socks on. As you can imagine what happens when you get a bunch of bad ass lady CrossFitters into a competition with this name it took on a life of it’s own.
Our ladies came dressed to impress with bright colors, matching outfits and socks of all kinds. Though they had fun accessorizing they came to throwdown. The displays of athletism and strength were impressive.
This first take of the Socks competition was legendary. Images of our ladies doing bad ass sh#t spread across the net. We held two more summer versions and then partnered with Shoreline CrossFit to hold a winter version called “No baby, leave the Stockings on”. Word spread quickly and it turned into a semi-annual event.
Due to popular demand we have decided to take this competition national, and eventually worldwide.
The first national “No baby, leave the socks on ” competition is taking place this August 17th.
