In a world where women are told what they can't do, we are here to do it better than you!!

The Elite Woman's Mission:

We are the women of Elite CrossFit. We are mothers, grandmothers, wives, girlfriends, sisters and daughters. We are secretaries, CPA's, students, teachers, community leaders, professors, and coaches. We are a family of females, driven by the goal to be better human beings. We achieve this through fitness. We will lift, jump, run, swing, press, squat, throw, pull, snatch, clean, row, win, lose, and climb our way to the top! We will never give up. Ever. We are here to send a powerful message that beauty and confidence are found through strength. And we are strong. To all the ladies who are scared of a barbell, to those afraid to sweat, and to all the women who have sufficed to "girl pushups," we challenge you to take the leap; adequate is not our goal. Better is what we must be. We will push each other, compete, succeed, fail, and endure pain some men may not imagine. And we will do it everyday, so we are better than we were yesterday.

my girlfriend can beat up your boyfriend

THE GIRLFRIEND WORKOUT. This is a new blogsite I found dedicated to females working out, why they should not be scared to strength train, and how important it is to incorporate this into your life. The info is valuable; good, written in similar style to a "Shape Magazine" article, but far less stupid in content.

in 20 minutes complete as many rounds as possible of:
5 pushups
10 squats
15 situps
**after every 3rd round, you must perform 3 deadlifts at 75% of your 1RM**
