If your internal dialogue sounds something like this during a WOD, you may have Dysfunctional Counting Syndrome...
"38, 39, 50, 51...Wait, did I just skip a few reps?...62, 63, 24, 25...Wait, which round am I on? 26, 27, 38, 39...Oh Crap! I forgot my Sit-ups in round 3...4, 5, 6...Oh well, I guess I'll just look busy until a few other people finish..."
Treatment: While there are no known cures for Dysfunctional Counting Syndrome, those affected can elect to enter every possible local, regional, or worldwide competition to occasionally post an accurate score by way of having a judge to count their reps.
One moment someone can be totally entrenched in the functional fitness lifestyle, and the next you'll see them wandering around Walmart with a distant look in their eyes, and a cart full of Ho-Hos.
We can only theorize that this is some sort of Amnesia. They've forgotten the benefits of being fit. They've somehow gone back to neglecting their nutrition, and worst of all, they've forgotten where their gym is located.
Treatment: Don't risk frightening them off, as they are most likely scared and confused. Calmly tell them that you remember them, and that they have a family that loves them, and wants them to come back. See if they can recall any memories at all of their former selves. It may be helpful to have other members of your gym contact them as well.
So there you have it. 5 disorders to watch out for at your box. In the whole scheme of things though, all of them are pretty harmless (unless you never recover from #5).
Have a WONDERFUL day!
