Whether you've been eyeing a CrossFit box for some time or have never considered giving deadlifts and WODs a try, the Instagram accounts of these badass, fit-as-hell CrossFit women will have you running straight to the barbell.

Tia-Clair Toomey

As the CrossFit Games champion from 2017–2022 (aka the fittest of all the CrossFit women), Australian Tia-Clair Toomey certainly runs her feed like the fittest woman on earth. Toomey is also an Olympian, having made her Olympic weightlifting debut at the 2016 competition in Rio de Janeiro — which made her the first-ever athlete to compete in both the CrossFit Games and the Olympics in the same year.

Katrín Davíðsdóttir

This exceptional Icelandic athlete was crowned the Fittest Woman on Earth at the CrossFit Games not once but twice — in 2015 and 2016. She's also the author of a memoir, Dottir, and a children's book, What Is the Way?, which she wrote with fellow CrossFit badass Annie Thorisdottir.

Karissa Pearce

Karissa Pearce has hit up the CrossFit games every year since 2015. If you want to know how strong she is, picture this: During the Mary workout, she completed an incredible 23 rounds of five handstand push-ups, 10 pistol squats, and 15 pull-ups in a 20-minute AMRAP — surpassing the first male finisher.

Brooke Ence

You'll often see Brooke Ence sporting a cowboy hat (and/or a shirt that reads "busy doing cowboy shit") on her off days. But when she's training, she's super serious. Follow her IG for a peek into her training schedule, and subscribe to her Naked Training app for workouts.

Sara Sigmundsdóttir

Sara Sigmundsdóttir fills her Instagram with videos of handstand walks and crazy-heavy deadlifts, as well as rest break hangs with her dog, Simba. What more could you ask for?

Anna Hulda Ólafsdóttir

Anna Hulda Ólafsdóttir has a Ph.D. in engineering and is the head of the National Knowledge Center on Climate Change Adaptation at the Icelandic Meteorological Office. Oh, and she's a champion Crossfit athlete and weight lifter.

Lauren Fisher

Lauren Fisher has been taking the CrossFit world by storm ever since she snagged the ninth overall spot in the 2014 CrossFit Games at just 20 years old. She's still competing, and has created a strength training platform for women called Grown Strong.

Camille Leblanc-Bazinet

Canadian CrossFitter Camille Leblanc-Bazinet took home the top title of Fittest Woman on Earth at the 2014 CrossFit Games. Follow her Insta to see updates from her journey as a competitive bodybuilder.

Molly Vollmer

CrossFit athlete Molly Vollmer currently works as a CrossFit coach at Street Parking, and posts plenty of WOD motivation and nutrition tips.

Laura Horvath

Laura Horvath's CrossFit Games debut (in 2018) was nothing short of spectacular: She snagged the number two spot just behind Tia-Clair Toomey. She still competes, and regularly posts unbelievable feats of strength on her Insta.
