Today's lady is as much mental as it is physical. It is the only workout that has made me cry. I tackled her about a year into CrossFit and I struggled to finish. I was the very last person still doing the workout and Matt Conner was yelling "encouragements" at me. I felt my eyes well up with tears and my throat start to constrict. At that moment I decided to tell myself a different story. Instead of thinking, "I'm fat. I'm slow. Everyone thinks I'm a failure," I began to think, "Look how far you've come. just focus on the next rep, your next breath. One rep at a time." That's how I finished the workout, one rep at a time.
Today's Femme Fatale is named for the eleventh named storm and fourth hurricane of the 2007 Atlantic hurricane season. She's a mental and physical painstorm. Good luck! The last time she visited us was Femme Fatale Week 2018.
She made her CrossFit mainsite debut on August 7, 2008.
