No bike no problem 😆😎🤡 These kick back tuck jumps subbed quite well today for assault bike calories… leg burn fo sure. Buttttt for me it's not quite the same… Burpees will always feel easier than the bike no matter the circumstance 😓🙄 #StupidBike #StupidShortLegs #BurpeesGoAlright #Crossfit #FitnessIsFitness

Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir
2x CrossFit Games champion, she moved to the USA to train full time with Ben Bergeron, and is committed to excellence on all levels, as is demonstrated by her favourite quote:
‘Full Effort is full victory’
Foucher is a warrior, and in her 4 appearances at the CrossFit Games, has never finished outside the top 5. 2nd in 2012 and 3rd in 2014, she consistently performs with incredible heart and ability, and is renowned for her work ethic. In 2015, Foucher tore her Achilles tendon whilst competing, seemingly the end of her career, she decided instead to strap on a support and compete anyway.
A great representative for all Crossfit girls!
The Australian Kara ‘big dub‘ Webb finished 2nd at the 2017 CrossFit Games, and is a powerful and versatile athlete. Up at 4.30am every morning to coach and train, she believes in going hard or going home.
‘Training is when I go to a really bad place…the worst place possible. That way, come game day, I know I’ve been worse.’
Fisher is a dedicated Crossfit athlete and a University student. Known for her 250 lb Clean & Jerks, Fisher says that ‘My Dad instilled a work ethic in me since I was a Kid…It can be tough to manage it all – eating well, training, homework, classes. My goal for each day is to stay relaxed, have fun, and just get it all done.’
‘I learned that if you want something, you have to work at it.’
2x Fittest Woman on earth at the CrossFit Games and 7x Games competitor, Thorisdottir has been featured on Vogue, and as a personal reward for winning the 2012 Games, she bought herself two pairs of heels, one Valentino and one Prada.

‘I want to show women that training can give them more confidence—and that being strong is beautiful.’
No matter where you are, weather it’s back at the gym or at the World championships a PR is always worth celebrating! @houstoniwf2015 @crossfitgames @frederikaegidius @thetrainingplan #88kg #likeagirl #allsmiles #enjoythejourney #thorisdottir

Tia Clair Toomey
Toomey is the fittest Woman on earth. She is a tri-silver medalist at the 2015 Pacific Games OIympic Weightlifting and competed for Australia at the IWF Weightlifting champion ships at Houston in the same year. She has also represented Australia at the Olympics, coming off the back of such a strong year, this humble and strong athlete quietly flies under the radar, but could be a surprise contender if things go her way.
Another Icelandic superwoman from the land of ice and fire, this athlete is hotly tipped as a potential winner for the 2018 CrossFit Games.
Her almost unrivalled work ethic, combined with an abundance of raw talent makes her truly one Crossfit girl to inspire you in 2018!
