CrossFit has quickly taken the fitness world by storm, and who doesn’t love extreme fitness chicks? They are everywhere kicking some serious ass! Here are a couple of famous Crossfit athletes who are inspirations to all of us!
1. Sara Sigmundsdottir
This 22-year-old from Iceland is classified as a CrossFit amateur. However, her raw talent and amount of dedication applied to her training makes her one of the best in the world. She really doesn’t know how good she is, but she’s placed first in the International Games and has her eye on the 2015 CrossFit Games. Her mantra is believe in yourself, and I think everyone can apply that to their training. Good Luck, Sara!2. Valerie Voboril
Valerie is a 36-year-old mom, full-time teacher, and CrossFit athlete. Placing fifth in the 2012 CrossFit games just months after delivering a baby girl, she is proof that fit chicks can do it all! When asked how she manages such a busy lifestyle, she talks about her rigorous scheduling, and her family’s support system. Way to go, Valerie! 3. Kara Webb
This 25-year-old athlete from Australia can teach us a valuable lesson about listening to our bodies and putting safety first. During the 2014 CrossFit Games, Kara withdrew due to her back injury. Though, she was likely to take second place. Her recovery had taken quite a while, but was used to focus on clean eating and becoming a well-rounded athlete. Now she’s back with a vengeance and ready to take on the 2015 Games. Go, Kara!4. Elisabeth Akinwale
Elisabeth is a 36-year-old mother and considers herself a CrossFit athlete and a secondary weightlifter. She supports the Train 4 Autism organization and is also competing in the 2015 Crossfit Games. A lifelong gymnast, Elisabeth has recently made the switch to CrossFit after a knee injury. She advocates letting go of rigid training and embracing a flexible attitude towards self-image and focuses on clean eating. Motherhood has been a big influence on her life as well. Good luck, Elisabeth!5. Michele Letendre
This 29-year-old athlete from East Canada is one of the best in the world. She makes a living as a CrossFit coach as well as managing a CrossFit gym. Standing at 5’1, her physique is pure muscle. She is predicted to finish in one of the top spots for the 2015 Cross Fit Games. Way to go, sister.
