Who is Kristan Clever? We may know her as the Fittest Woman on Earth, winner of the 2010 CrossFit Games, but she’s much more than that. Follow Sevan Matossian on this introspective journey into the life of the women’s champ.
Driven by the happiness that shines through in her ever-present smile, Clever is a competitive athlete at the top of her game. Her success is perhaps due to her high volume of training and her commitment to attacking her weaknesses and pushing through even the most undesirable workouts.
It’s clear Clever thrives on competition. She works out at Valley CrossFit with the same intensity she had in the Games, and having seventh-place Games finisher Rebecca Voigt as her training partner helps Clever step up her game.
Despite her overall skills, Clever likes the fact that she’s not the best at everything: “I can’t be No. 1 at everything all the time. If I was then where would I go from there?”
In this feature-length look at the champion, learn more about Clever’s workout strategy and mental poise, and find out how this top-caliber athlete even now continues to improve her fitness.
