Immediately upon Partner A’s return from the run, Partner B heads out, and Partner A picks up at the exact point Partner B left off, e.g., if Partner B has completed 7 push-ups in his fourth round, Partner A starts with push-up 8, then moves on to squats, etc.

    The Ladies behind the Nasty Girls

    Annie Sakamoto

    Annie was the original and quintessential, “Nasty Girl.” She was the pint size woman who regularly accomplished superhuman feats of strength and endurance. She was so synonymous with CrossFit she even had a WOD, “Annie,” named after her. 

    Eva Twardokens

    Eva T (on the left) had a bit of a different story. She was a two-time Olympic Athlete forced to retire due to career ending injuries. She stumbled apon Greg Glassman in a spin class and was soon to become a “Nasty Girl” shortly after becoming a private client of Glassman’s.

    Nicole Carroll

    The director of CrossFit’s Certification and Training Department. She was a helping hand in training Dave Castro to be in the position he is in now today, the programmer of the Games WODs. Today there are roughly 10-20 seminars scheduled around the world on a weekly basis. Nicole has her hands full!
