MEMES FOR STRONG WOMEN
Something amazing is happening around the world! The eyes of women (and men) are being opened to the elephant in the room when it comes to women and their body shape, ability and strength, and for this Crossfit should be exalted.
So often is the focus of the “Crossfit debate” on injuries or technique (kipping vs. strict etc) that the change in attitude that has evolved within Crossfit about women’s bodies, by women themselves, is overlooked.
However, this newly empowered Crossfit lass was still brought up on the same stigma as me. As a coach I see a struggle play out in almost every woman that comes in the box. The struggle between what we have been brought up to believe and what we are discovering for ourselves.
CROSSFIT CHICKS IN THE BOX
The problem with this self discovery is that, in a Crossfit box surrounded by other female Crossfitters, who are strong and self assured and know that strong is sexy, our new belief is secure. You know who you are, and you know you belong. Because no matter if you are the biggest, strongest lady or it is your second wod ever and you have the upper body strength of a lettuce leaf, the other members of your box share your outlook. Encouraging you to find the limits of your individual ability and discover the strength you never knew you had.
