How have your perceptions of strength changed? "In my youth, I read a lot of fashion magazines and really bought into this whole glossed up, unrealistic idea of femininity. I grew up in Asia where women are expected to look as thin as paper cutouts. I didn't even think about 'strength.' I also wasn't very athletic so the concept never really occurred to me. I think the process of joining crossfit and feeling my own body become stronger was like a lightbulb going off. So now in raising my daughter, I try to always tell her how important it is to be strong." —Ali C.
Susan Pittard: Strong Is A Woman
Today we're excited to bring you another installment of Susan P.'s Strong Is A Woman photos. Susan has been running this series for the past couple of months. With her permisson, we're reposting some of them on the blog over the next two weeks. Here's what Susan herself had to say about the series:
"The motivation behind my 'Strong is a Woman' portrait series was and is the amazing women and men at CFSBK. I knew I wanted to shoot a portrait series after being on a 'break' of sorts, having my son. I ultimately decided to focus on the women at CFSBK because being a woman, I am impressed by the women I workout next to and I am especially taken by the pregnant women who fly by me in WODs. I also thought about the diversity of this great community. My goal was/is to show that strength can come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and ages. In gathering quotes from my subjects. I have learned that strength breaks boundaries for most people. Being strong is not only physical but it permeates into ones mental state and creates a wonderful sense of empowerment and well being for anyyone who seeks it. I feel like I have only scratched the surface with this project and I will be excited to shoot more women, hopefully soon. Thank you to ALL the STRONG women who participated and to CFSBK for providing this amazing community that inspires me daily."
