Beauty in Strength

CrossFit can change how a woman both specifies appeal and feels about her body, as Rita Benavidez, Jackie Perez, Erin Cianciolo and Andrea Ager go over in this video.

When thinking appeal was a photo of a waify female on a publication, Benavidez feels differently now. "My understanding of beauty has altered over the past few years," Benavidez states. "Real charm ... is strength and fitness, and confidence in yourself."

Perez was originally encouraged by trying to be skinny. "That wasn't getting me anywhere," she says. "With CrossFit, I set goals. I wish to deadlift 225, I'm going to hit that faster than I'm going to search in the mirror and like exactly what I see."

Ager states putting in the work is essential to getting what you desire. "I think that hard work and the manner in which your body looks go so hand-in-hand," she says. "When you do get a body that you want, you're extremely proud of it ... you take pride in exactly what your body can do."

Through CrossFit, these females are confident, stronger and fitter. They are moms, tomboys, coaches. They are CrossFit athletes.
