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.
