Women’s CrossFit Hour

As part of the Mutual Inspirations Festival 2016 – Martina Navrátilová, the Czech Embassy’s main hall transformed into a fitness facility in the evening of October 4 as an eager class of women trained under the direction of CrossFit Athlete and Head Coach Danielle Dionne.

The group sweated through the work out of the day, performing constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity and learning the proper forms for pushups, burpees and squats. CrossFit Athletes Karolin Nilsson and Zoe Pond McPherson, who recently earned the title of the “fittest woman” in the Philippines in Crossfit, were on hand to assist and answer questions about the sport and healthy living. The event was inspired by tennis legend Martina Navrátilová’s love to train through many different sports and varied intensity conditioning to reach the best shape of her life, which is documented in her book Shape Yourself on proper physical fitness and nutrition.
