GirlCamp 4.0: 30 Girls, One Day, lots of Lifting & Gymnastics

So what happens when you put 30 Badass Crossfit Girls and two highly respected coaches together for a whole day of intense training, fun and teamwods?


On saturday the 12th of March, Northern Spirit held their 4th Girlcamp. 30 girls from all over Northern Europe gathered at Crossfit Helsingborg and were coached for a full day by Anna Hulda Olafsdottir and Jakobina Jonsdottir. Both athletes are highly decorated Crossfitters/weightlifters and coaches.

The girls met in the morning and first watched Anna and Jakobina perform open 16.3. After that the group was divided into two groups according to their skill level. One group was coached to improve their lifting and the other half their gymnastics. Half way through the day the groups switched places, and at about 5 pm they finished things off with a teamwod. According to the pics and thank yous at #Northernspirit throughout the following days, the participants really enjoyed the day and learned a lot. Joakim Loveng from Northern Spirit stated that:

‘We are definitely arranging more training camps in the future and have gotten some requests to do so outside of Sweden. Stay on the lookout for when and where they will take place!’

‘It is also an opportunity for us to get real life eye-to-eye feedback on our products from the people who use them. It is very valuable for us as we strive to continue to develop our products.’ Says Niklas Carlson, CEO of NS.

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.
