5. STACIE TOVAR
6 x CrossFit Games competitior, Stacie is going back to Carson this year after a solid 2nd place finish at the Central Regional. Stacie is a great role model and advocate for the positive impact on body image that Crossfit is causing. She had this to say in reply to a few idiots on social media that tried to body shame her.
‘I’m proud of the ladies who are owning it — the muscles and the thickness. We are inspiring young girls and young women all over the world to be healthier.
The negative comments I still see on social media only add fuel to my fire. What caused self-doubt for me in the beginning now gives me a great sense of pride, accomplishment and purpose. I am passionate about building a positive body image and ending body-shaming.’
‘I hate to burst your bubble, insecure people on the other end of those rude comments, but strong is the new sexy, and strength is the new beautiful. I’m a healthy, confident, fit and perfectly capable female.’
