Stylists work to help female CrossFit athletes conquer their fear of denim and find the perfect pair of jeans.
Spandex is great, but sometimes a lady wants to rock a pair of jeans. The squatting in CrossFit is known for developing a well-shaped rear, so it seems a shame to subject that booty to a pair of ill-fitting jeans.
As with any problem, the best thing to do is go to the experts for advice. In the quest for quality denim that fits the CrossFit body, the CrossFit Journal gathered three top athletes: six-time CrossFit Games competitor Becca Voigt, rising star and former USC basketball player Jamie Hagiya, and two-time SoCal Regional competitor Pam Eamranond.
The women met at The Blues Jean Bar in Santa Monica, Calif. The store specializes in fitting denim, and instead of wandering confused through the racks, you belly up to the bar and tell the “jeanstender” what style you like and the size you typically wear.
The stylists look at the wall of denim behind them and pick some options. They don’t stop until they find a pair of jeans perfect for you.
But were they up for the challenge of fitting the CrossFit body?
