CrossFit members in Brazil created a hilarious scene caught on video as a regular workout run outside a gym in the Boa Viagem region off the coast of the country turned into a mad dash for unknown reasons.

In the CCTV video footage, which was first posted online and reported by the New York Post, a frantic scene develops in mere seconds.  

Remind me: For those who aren’t regular CrossFitters, running outside the gym is a regular part of some workouts, where participants head outside as part of the WOD given small gym spaces in most places.

  • In the breakdown of the video by the Post, who spoke to someone who was at the scene, we first see a woman running by a crowded outdoor restaurant on the side of a street.
  • She is then followed by a man with a dog, which prompts one woman to stand up from her seat at the restaurant and then run away, while apparently “urging” others to do so
  • This creates a mad dash by most of the customers in frame, as panicked restaurant goers flee in the direction of the runners, who were reportedly thought to be robbers. 

Turns out they were CrossFit gym members just making sure they got their run in. Watch for yourself below, what do you think?
