Lisa Ilka Abrams describes how 10 women come together to conquer the bar through positive affirmations, commitment to a defined goal and group support.
Many women remember a time in elementary school when someone said, “Girls can’t do pull-ups!” Maybe it was the schoolyard bully, or even a misguided P.E. teacher. We were led to believe that because we were female, some athletic feats were unattainable.
That idea was proved wrong on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, 2011. Ten female athletes participated in an Rx STAR Pull-Up Summit, sponsored by Ventana CrossFit and facilitated by Aly Willier, founder and CEO of Rx STAR.
