Camille LeBlanc-Bazine: How Crossfit changed her life
Camille LeBlanc-Bazine is known as the fittest woman on earth. Sport was always an important part of her life, but since she started with crossfit her whole life changed and she goes to the limit everyday.
Since she was a little girl, Camille loved doing sports and being healthy. She started at the age of six when she did gymnastics. When she was 15, she had to stop because of an injury on her haunch – but she could never quit sports, so she did everything else.
In 2009, she had her first crossfit experience and immediately fell in love with the high intensity of the workout. Crossfit became her passion, and in 2014 she won the Reebok Crossfit Games. Since then she is known as the fittest woman on earth.
Doing crossfit not only changed Camilles body, it also affected her on a mental way. She learned not to give up on every little obstacle, but to hold on and fight against the pain. She says that when it’s getting difficult, you have to go on and do something you never did before.
During the training, little challenges of the everyday life are portrayed and you learn how to overcome them. So she also got better grades at university due to her passion for crossfit. She learned how to stay focused and how to concentrate better. It is fun exploring the own limitations, and that’s what Camilla does every day. She says: “Every piece of your body screams to stop, but you simply go on even if you don’t know what will happen.” And then you realize that you can do everything you want if you just do it.
The best competition is a friendly strife. Many of Camille’s competitors are actually her best friends. They respect each other and share both passion and pain. To be a good crossfit competitor, you have to enhance also your humanity. And this of course doesn’t work without friends. Holding together, pushing each other to the limit and getting inspired by others is the key to success.
