Crossfit is not only the sport of jocks and gym rats anymore. With its high-intensity workout that simultaneously targets every major muscle group without isolating anyone, it’s now a popular fitness regimen for people of all shapes, sizes, colors, and ages. And as more women are developing an interest in endurance sports and fitness with weightlifting, Crossfit has become a favorite way to stay tuned and have fun.
When we studied the database of women who compete in CrossFit, we had to stop at 45. We ruled out any woman over 30 and any woman who is not considered “hot” (i.e., a celebrity). Here are the top 45 hottest women in CrossFit according to our rigorous standards.
