Kari is a six times CrossFit Games athlete and four time Fittest American Female. She is currently the 3rd fittest woman on earth and has been in the top 10 the last five years. She has a long athletic career in gymnastics, and she earned her degree in Movement Science from the School of Kinesiology and was three time Academic All Big Ten.
In addition to being a full time athlete, she has developed PowerAbs, which is a core program thousands of people are doing. It incorporates many of the things she learned in her 18 years of gymnastics and through her education to get people stronger and better looking midsections.
In this episode Ashleigh and Kari talk about her recent CrossFit Games experience, including her training, diet, recovery, and mindset approach; being an older athlete at 31; why we love and hate burpees, and we dig into her Power Abs program too.
