CrossFit Cat Gives High Fives

This Cat Gives High Fives at a CrossFit Gym, and Wow, Best Cheerleader Ever?

How do you usually finish a sweat sesh: chug some more water? Fist-bump your fellow class-goer with a look that says, "Thank god we survived?" Head to the showers? Grab a eucalyptus towel if you're at a bougie high-end gym? No matter what your post-workout ritual is, you've been doing it all wrong.

Turns out, there's only one way to end a fitness class, and that's with a high five from a cat. I didn't realize how much I needed a paw-bump from an encouraging feline until I watched this video from CrossFit's Instagram. The friendly tabby gave CrossFitters high fives as they jogged by at a CrossFit box in China. He didn't miss a beat as he stuck his paw out for each patron that jogged past.

You know what my dog does when I finish a workout? Nothing — she just stares at me to be let out for the hundredth time that day. I'm not much of a cat person, but this CrossFit cat has convinced me every gym and fitness class needs one.
