Girl Power!


Girl Power!


I fell in love with this shirt Karen Wilson got while visiting CrossFit Balboa. Indeed our female athletes show great pound for pound strength. Individual athletes will have many strenghts and weaknesses. Depending on the nature of the workout, certain individuals will perform better. This is obviously true for men and women. We can speculate on men vs. women but there is some evident truth in the development of our athletes. Women seem to have a great deal of muscular endurance. Indeed, some of our best times for certain workouts are held by the ladies.  One profound aspect of CrossFit is the remarkable athleticism achieved by female athletes. CrossFit has broken the mold and crushed the stubborn myth that men are always stronger and faster. In many gyms, women's workout programs are treated differently than men's. Not here. We recognize and applaud their ability to "crush" the competition!

    Karen, did you have a chocolate covered banana after your workout? (Balboa Island is known for this tasty treat). Okay, two affiliates in Southern California down….lots more to tackle! I can't wait to hear about your experience.
