Brute Showdown is Back! Meet the Ladies (Feat Brooke Ence)

What happens when a weightlifter, bodybuilder, powerlifter and CrossFit athlete walk into an arena?

The. Brute. Showdown.

After the hugely popular first series, featuring top Crossfitter Jacob Heppner, the Brute Showdown is back. This time its the turn of the ladies. 

Two days. Four athletes. Eight events.

In this first episode, you’ll be meeting the competitors and hearing what they’re most looking forward to in the competition (and what they’re most scared of):

Brooke Ence

CrossFit Games Athlete, 2015 14th Fittest Woman on Earth.

Dana Linn Bailey

Bodybuilder, 2013 Ms. Olympia.

“It was fun pushing each other and doing things that we never attempted before and sometimes weren’t very comfortable doing. It took us out of comfort zones where we had to learn something real fast and preform. We were all teachers and learners this weekend and it was fun learning from some of the top athletes in their sport.”

This was such an incredible opportunity and I’m thankful for the experience to help represent women in strength sports. Trying new things, making friends, and even better- lifting weights. Fuck yes.
