10 amazing body transformations with CrossFit
CrossFit boasts a myriad of amazing transformation stories, not only for fitness enthusiasts, but also for CrossFit Games athletes. Their life examples can be an excellent stimulus for external motivation for those who want to radically change their lives. To be convinced of this, it is enough to look at the photographs of athletes before and after functional training sessions, in which they have been transformed almost beyond recognition.
The story of the Icelandic athlete Sol Sigurdardottir is a perfect example for those who want to change themselves for the better. In order to succeed and decorate the covers of world magazines, the girl had to fall in love with sports and reconsider her views on nutrition.
“In 2012, I went to Spain on a student exchange program, and upon returning home I wanted to get rid of a couple of extra pounds I had accumulated over the year. My cousin had just started doing CrossFit and invited me to go with him. I immediately felt that it was mine. I have no sports background. As a child, I tried different sports, but interest in them faded after a couple of months of classes.
In order to see herself in a “different body”, Sol began to regularly visit the gym and count macronutrients. Her entire body, especially her core muscles, is now much stronger than it used to be. In addition to looking great and feeling better, she is now a real athlete and can do things she never dreamed of before.
Reflecting on transformation, Sol said, “This is all thanks to CrossFit and @rpstrength. [онлайн-программа по питанию и тренировкам]… However, I am equally happy in both photos, maybe a little better in the second.“.
The main advice: “Be patient! Develop basic skills first, then you can move on to more complex exercises.
So many people have hurt themselves by making movements for which their bodies are not yet ready. Eat more greens and recover. Don’t neglect it. “
The amazing transformation of American athlete Chin Cho began 11 years ago. The photo on the left was taken in the spring of 2009. Then she only underwent two knee surgeries, and ended her career as a swimmer.
“As you know, swimmers do not pay much attention to their diet and consume a lot of calories to replenish the energy spent in the pool.“, Says the athlete. “Among other things, I was a fun student, went to parties, where my friends and I often enjoyed cocktails.“.
China then weighed 81 kg. In August 2009, the girl joined the CrossFit Milpitas team, where she was noticed and after 4 months they began to draw up a separate training plan for participation in the qualifiers for the 2010 Games. Then she met her future husband Freddie Camacho.
“This photo was taken in December 2009. I was actively involved in CrossFit for 5 months and had already lost 6 kg, but I still did not look my best, because I did not monitor nutrition, recovery and still went to clubs a couple of times a week. As a result, I took 4th place at the regional in California and 18th at the CrossFit Games.
The next year, Cho dropped another 9 kg and took the regional 3rd place, but the selection for the world championship did not pass in a tie-break. An unfortunate defeat prompted her to completely rethink her nutrition and training plan. Chyna went on a paleo diet, giving up gluten and dairy products. Within 2 weeks she began to look slimmer.
“Now I weigh 15 kg lighter and am definitely in the best shape of my life. I have more energy, strength and health than at 20“.
Advice: “Changes don’t happen overnight, stay consistent and enjoy the journey!“.
