91: Emily Bridgers Benson, CrossFit Games Athlete - “I was tired of always saying ‘I want to be a little stronger’, so I just decided to get stronger.”
In the 91st episode of Keep Moving Forward, I interview CrossFit Games Athlete and co-founder of CrossFit Terminus, Emily Bridgers Benson.
“I was tired of always saying ‘I want to be a little stronger’, so I just decided to get stronger.” From collegiate gymnast sidelined by injury to professional CrossFit competitor, Emily Bridgers is an unstoppable athlete. Through unshakable mental fortitude and a pure love of sport, Emily forged ahead in her career and qualified for the CrossFit Regionals in her first year as a CrossFit athlete, an unheard of feat. Since then, Emily has competed in numerous CrossFit competitions, including 4 times at the Games and hopes to make that 5 in 2018.
Her resiliency and determination is truthfully amazing and I am so grateful for the chance to help share her story. I hope you all enjoy my interview with Emily Bridgers Benson.
We are in week 11 of trying to get The Rock, so if you want him to be a guest on KMF as badly as I do, then let’s get to work. Just start tagging him on social media and telling him that he has to be a guest; tell him how much you want to hear his story. We have 11 weeks left. We got this.
