Where the Girls Are

Other CrossFit owners have told me that they have some trouble attracting women to their boxes. Fortunately, that isn't an issue at CFVB. In fact, women make up 50% of our membership!

Our ladies range from teens to mid-60s. Some are tall (really tall) and some are short; we've got muscular types and skinny minnies. They are mothers and grandmothers. We've got students, doctors, business-owners, teachers, techies, dentists, nurses and more.

What they have in common is a take-no-excuses attitude, a willingness to learn, a desire to improve and a fun spirit. They should never be underestimated.

The women of CrossFit Vero Beach are strong and beautiful!

    Yes, that did suck doing the burpees first. Where’s Jared? He would have fixed all this! PS: Tshirt slogan: I like dirty knees

  5. I’m not sure which way would have been harder…thursters first and burpees would have been slow on the first round? Oh well! I definitely need Jared or John Y in the AM – they always find my mistakes.

    Rach Love the shirt slogan! We do have some bad ass woman in the 5 am class. Anyone that can go through some of the crazy WOD’s we have had lately and then do 150 situps is badass. Those Sit Up Queens are head strong and determined women!
