Sara Armanius – The Fittest Woman in Sweden

Hey Sara Armanius, and congratulations on winning the Open in Sweden. You are now officially ‘The Fittest in Sweden’

Tell us briefly about who you are?

My name is Sara Armanius. I am former dancer, I work as a personal trainer and compete in Crossfit. I love food, hugs and my family and friends… and training of course.

What merits have you achieved so far in CF?

  • 11th Place in Europe 2016 Crossfit Open
  • 6th Place in The Athlete Games 2016

What did you do before CF?

I danced for 11 years (hip hop, jazz, balett, contemporary dance)

How are you preparing yourself for the Regionals?

I train twice a day in the right gear, following a program from Crossfit Uppsala. I eat and sleep well and do stuff that makes me happy when I´m not training.

What motivates you to go on when everything gets tough in the middle of a WOD?

I always think that ‘This will make me stronger and better’ and if it’s a WOD in a competition, I´m just thinking that I want to win!

  • 8 CTB Pull Ups
  • 6 Squat Cleans (80 kg)
  • 10 strict HSPU
