CrossFit has gained popularity among us females recently. But along with this, there’s been many guys that have voiced their criticism against this sport.
The fact is, countless women have been able to successfully transform their physique through this method of training; they’ve either signiticantly lost body fat and become shredded, or gained lean mass and become fitness models.
For this reason, we want to voice our support for CrossFit females – by publishing an article filled with pictures of before & after female transformations.
Check it out:
Best CrossFit Transformations
1. Lauren Fisher
Lauren is one of the most popular CrossFit girls for one reason – she’s sculpted a powerful and aesthetic figure, inspiring many to lift heavy weights.
In fact, she’s known for her raw strength; regularly posting pictures and videos of herself on Instagram, breaking new personal records on her squat, clean and jerks etc.
But if you look at photos of Lauren before she began her fitness journey, you’ll realize she’s come a LONG way. This is why she’s cemented her position as #1 on our list.
2. Christmas Abbott
Second on our list is Christmas Abbott, who has one of the most inspirational stories on this list.
She was badly affected by a car crash at the age of 13, which resulted in her sister falling into a coma. This led to her trying to numb reality with alcohol.
However, she turned her life around at 22, when she decided to make a change; Christmas began working as a civilian contractor in Iraq, and started her fitness journey shortly after.
Since then, she’s become an Olympic weightlifter and successful CrossFit athlete. She inspires over 400k followers on Instagram with pictures of her figure and workouts.

What We Can Learn From CrossFit Transformations
These 5 CrossFit athletes have shown the world that it’s possible to shape your dream figure by lifting weights.
They’ve helped dismiss the ‘myth’ that weight-lifting makes girls bulky – instead, proving that deadlifts and squats will tone up your figure more effectively than simply performing hours of cardio.
Ultimately, it doesn’t matter whether you take part in CrossFit or follow your own routine. But one thing that is important, is that you include weight-lifting in your routine (instead of running on the treadmill all day!).
