annie-sakamotoAnnie was the original and quintessential, “Nasty Girl.” She was the pint size woman who regularly accomplished superhuman feats of strength and endurance. She was so synonymous with CrossFit she even had a WOD, “Annie,” named after her.

Double-unders
Sit-ups

The picture on the right is a snap shot of Annie at the 2011 CrossFit Games. Yes, after 8+ years of CrossFit and a few kids she still is competing at the top level.

EVATEva T (on the left) had a bit of a different story. She was a two-time Olympic Athlete forced to retire due to career ending injuries. She stumbled apon Greg Glassman in a spin class and was soon to become a “Nasty Girl” shortly after becoming a private client of Glassman’s. Read her story HERE.

Today, Nicole Carroll is the director of CrossFit’s Certification and Training Department. She was a helping hand in training Dave Castro to be in the position he is in now today, the programmer of the Games WODs. Today there are roughly 10-20 seminars scheduled around the world on a weekly basis. Nicole has her hands full!
