Katrin Davidsdottir Releases Inspiring Message for ALL Female CrossFit Athletes

2x CrossFit Games winner Katrin Davidsdottir recently posted an inspiring message for female CrossFit athletes, asking them to challenge pre-conceived and outdated societal norms. 


“Culture has conditioned us to believe that us women are in a constant competition with each other. That ones success is taking away from another. That the “room at the top” or a seat on the board is “the seat” & the only one available.

Reality is: a rising tide lifts all ship. We are BETTER TOGETHER, one woman’s success is there to INSPIRE & prove possible to anothers, when it is hard we are here to support one another. There is space for us all to succeed. Another success takes NOTHING away from your progression.

It’s easy to get envious, frustrated or even angry at someone when they accomplish something you want. Turn that emotion into belief that YOU TOO CAN, celebrate with her & let it inspire you. The more us women succeed, the better we all will become.

THANKFUL for all the amazing women I have surrounding me ?❤️✨ @amandajbarnhart is just one of them for me!!”

Amanda Barnhart Posts Important Message about Having Unrealistic Body Image Goals

Amanda Barnhart finished 7th at the 2019 CrossFit Games. She has continually risen from 272nd in 2017 to 27th last year. Despite an ankle injury, she put on an impressive display of fitness and determination in Madison this summer, exciting the crowds with her weightlifting abilities and brave performances across the board.

She regularly talks about body image, working to dispel many of the myths that social media propagates surrounding this topic. What do you think about her thoughts below?

“The Left pic was taken 2-3 weeks out from the 2019 crossfit games and right pic is from just the other day. I posted one of these last year and I wanted to post another one because I like to continue to be as transparent as possible with you guys. I know some of you will ask what’s your weight difference here? And I’m going to answer that by saying it doesn’t matter. I’m posting this to show THAT I AM HUMAN.”

“I am posting this to share with you that the “Perfect Crossfit Games body” is not sustainable and should NOT be your “goals.” Someone like me, who’s life literally revolves around exercise, should not be your goal.”

“I am here to keep it real, to inspire, and to motivate you all to focus on being the best YOU.”

“Life’s way too short to be constantly chasing “the perfect body.” And don’t get me wrong, having goals is GREAT but I encourage you all to focus on finding the balance between healthy and happy. And I encourage you all to remember to love yourself despite your insecurities and to please give yourself a little forgiveness when you aren’t perfect because trust me NO ONE is.”
