    Tia-Clair Toomey is the reigning Fittest Woman on Earth. Katrin Davidsdottir has two CrossFit Games championships under her belt. Both women are fierce, determined and fitter than ever.

    In this episode of “Road to the Games,” we follow Toomey and Davidsdottir as they prepare to take on the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games, which are less than a week away. Both women have been training at the very edge of capacity in hopes of being crowned the Fittest on Earth on Sunday, Aug. 5.

    “I want to be as fit as I can, and I want to be as strong as I can,” Toomey says. “In order to do that, I need to test my boundaries.”

    Toomey is doing just that while training in Cookeville, Tennessee, under the watchful eye of husband and coach Shane Orr.

    Meanwhile, in Boston, Massachusetts, Davidsdottir is tackling the famous Blue Hills with coach Ben Bergeron and a handful of Games athletes including Camille Leblanc-Bazinet and Brooke Wells.

    “Whenever something is really, really, really, really hard, in like a lactic, sprint kinda way, that’s when I’m like, ‘Ooo, that was almost like Blue Hills,’” Davidsdottir says of the workout.

    Toomey and Davidsdottir will battle each other and the rest of the field Aug. 1-5 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin.

    Honestly, I think both Katrin and Tia are amazing, they have to be considering they were 1st and 3rd respectively but I think the slight difference is just mindset. As some commenters pointed out, Katrin wants to win whereas Tia knows she can win. Those two mindset can make such a difference for your overall performance. When you know you can win, you just have to understand what you have to do but not torturing yourself mentally. When you want to win and every mistake you do is emphasized individually, that will never get you to where you want to be. You're just so dead set on your flaws, you forgot where you can shine. I mean, TCT got 14th on an event and yet she still won the '18 games. Yes, winning a game means a lot but if you know you're not that good at it, don't stress about your flaws or your mistakes. Think about what can you do next to resolve that and improve your placing on the board

    Honestly I think Crossfitters would benefit from a lot of form work on non-gym-related events such as the swims, rows and runs. They seem just generally inefficient and imo they could do better.

    I look up to many male cross fitters because I workout too, but I will admit: I love CrossFit because of the women. They are always hot! I had most of them liked my posts on m Instagram page. I love women so much.

    This is fun to watch/do, and an admirable body image; but the training will take a toll in the long run.
