Utah’s Strongest Chick Competition

ECF's Strongest Chicks

Last Saturday I got to compete in Elevated CrossFit‘s FIRST ‘Utah’s Strongest Chick’ competition.

We invited gyms from all over Utah County and SLC. We had 3 weight categories, plus a “Knocked Up” category (that was for me – Thanks Tyson!). Here’s what we had to do: {Read More}
