Inspirational Women

"I don't want to get bulky"

"You look like a man"

"Your muscles look gross"

I don't know how many times I've read or heard these comments associated with female CrossFit athletes. Doing CrossFit will not make you manly, bulky, or gross. It will empower you, make you proud of your ability and strength, and anyone who says otherwise is jealous or projecting their own self doubt.

Watch the video below about two of the top female athletes in the sport of fitness, Kara Webb and Tia-Clair Toomey. They should be viewed as role models and not objects of ridicule. And please think before you say something negative about a woman's body or image.
