For those of you who are not familiar with Christmas Abbott, check out this profile. While she’s already well-known in CrossFit circles, she’s now trying to break into NASCAR as part of the pit crew for Turner Motorsports. She talked about her journey to NASCAR with the Charlotte Observer back in October. Definitely check out this gallery of her practicing in the pit.
While it’d be a huge step for Abbott to break through the NASCAR wall, the other takeaway from this is how transferable the strength and stamina you build from CrossFit is to other areas. Next time you’re doing sit-ups or thrusters, remember that they’re more applicable than you think.
