The female body has attracted lots of attention from a number of disciplines including art throughout the human history. Every artist has been coming up with a concept that defines what an ideal woman should look like and what beauty really is.
Thanks to CrossFit, women have gotten an opportunity to work themselves out and define their own bodies thereby setting a bar against which they are perceived. The following are the concepts of the female body that CrossFit training has helped define.
The Athletic Physique
Historically, this type of figure has been the subject of continuous stigmatization because it did not match the widely acknowledged ideals. CrossFit is gradually breaking the mold and changing the fact that being too bulky, and masculine is also an acceptable concept of the female body. With many people joining CrossFit, the social mentality is also changing, and the athletic physique is gaining more acceptance.
An Aesthetic of Excellence
When you look at the body of a sports person, you are seeing the many hours these athletes have put in to push their physiques to the limit. The whole aim of the intense training is to enhance the athletic performance of the athletes. Sometimes this hard work gives an impressive image which is simply the proof of the strength and dedication these athletes have invested.
CrossFit builds into the female athlete, speed, flexibility, strength, precision, and so many other attributes that give them extraordinary performance. As you watch every muscle contract to provide you with the right movement, you appreciate that CrossFit is not just about the bodily appearance, but also the excellence.
Fighting to Compete
The human body is capable of doing so much and sports, more so CrossFit brings this out in a very clear way. For women, the CrossFit programme gives them a means of escaping from the numerous expectations and stereotypes that they have been subjected to over and over again in the past. Through training, they get the right to compete in sports such as boxing and weightlifting which previously have been the preserve of men.
In this way, women have shown the female body is not a weakling, but rather can achieve great performances through perseverance and training. As the variety of competitive disciplines increased in most parts of the world, CrossFit women increased their engagement in the sports, not for the purposes of attaining a skinny figure, but rather to make achievements, stay healthy, and socialize.
Pushing the Limits of Performance
CrossFit is a strong advocate of body types that defy socially imposed templates. By testing the limits of the female body, CrossFit enables the women folk to discover their agility, speed, and strength. There is no upper limit of performance that CrossFit imposes on women. All the workouts of the day are aimed at both sexes.
There is no restriction concerning what the female body can do or become. The many levels of training and the spirit of comradeship make women feel more appreciated and welcome.
