Winnipeg–Crystal has been training with CrossFit 204 since before we had a name!
After competing in triathlons and fitness/figure competitions, Crystal jumped into CrossFit in the summer of 2009. By March of 2010, she was entered into the Central Canada Sectional, where she finished 18th and narrowly missed moving on to the regional level. That experience gave her all the incentive she needed to train harder than ever, and in May of 2010 she had a great performance at the CrossFit Regina Spring Fling in Saskatchewan.
Like any CrossFit contest, those events revealed strengths and weaknesses, and Crystal’s been working hard to get stronger, faster and more powerful over the last months. She’s now got her sights set on the 2011 CrossFit Games qualifying events, which will happen sometime in spring.
We’ll use this space for Crystal to talk about her workouts at CrossFit 204, her training, her diet and her thoughts as she prepares for the challenges ahead. The updates will be a great read for people interested in competition, as well as anyone who’s interested in CrossFit for females and CrossFit culture in general.
