Women, please watch this video. And please share it with as many of your friends as possible. Especially the ones who have said things like:

“I don’t want to CrossFit, it’ll make me too bulky.”

“Muscles aren’t sexy.”

“I just want to get skinny, that’ll make me look good.”

For most of us, the goal at some point, has been to try and work out to LOOK good. Over the last few years, my mind has shifted a lot more to try my best to be as healthy as possible. Not just for today, but for the rest of my life.
Body image issues are almost all geared towards making OTHER people think a certain way about you. Instead, train for YOU. Get healthy for you! The positive changes in so many aspects of your life when you see how your hard work pays off cannot be priced. You deserve to feel that good!

The video below is called, “CrossFit – Beauty in Strength” and that is a perfect name for it. Let the record show… these women are strong AND beautiful. Love this.

Oh yeah, men, you might want to watch the video too. So… you can explain to women in your lives why they won’t get bulky. Also, does anybody know if CrossFit Media is hiring? I would love to work with them on projects like this. POWERFUL message.

  1. That was amazing! It put in a nutshell how I feel about cross fit and why I do it. To be strong is the pinnacle.

  2. Miranda,You were a trainer at my Level One cert and I was in Awe of how strong, beautiful and humble you are!!!!!
