2 x winner of the CrossFit Games and an international icon to millions, what can you learn from Iceland’s daughter of Thor to help you become a better athlete?


Annie Thorisdottir is both humble, yet open to admit that she wants to win whenever she competes. She is fiercely competitive, which helps you to improve in Crossfit, yet her ego doesn’t get in the way if she finishes in second place. For her she doesn’t lose, either she wins or learns a lesson.

‘Identify your finish line – and as soon as you get there find the next one. Having goals is essential to growing, essential to learning, essential to be better than you were yesterday.’

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
