Karissa Pearce

Excelling at athletics has always been Kari’s life purpose/mission. Having been a competitive gymnast for 18 years and being a part of the University of Michigan’s team, Kari is familiar with the dedication and hard work required for success.  

After retiring from her gymnastics career, Kari picked up weightlifting and was a part of a physique show, followed by a powerlifting competition. She officially started her CrossFit training in November 2014 and has been unstoppable ever since! After finishing in third place at her first Regional, Kari qualified for the 2015 CrossFit games. There she earned the title 21st fittest female on Earth.

A day in the life of this Games athlete involves training 5 days a week: 3 days on, 1 recovery day, 2 days on and one day of complete rest. She also adds in extra work when needed. This can include max effort sets of gymnastics elements, technique for Weightlifting, mobility, and endurance for common CrossFit elements.

He started competing in the sport of CrossFit and immediately made it on the OCCF Black team, qualifying for the 2012 SoCal Regional CrossFit Games.

Everyday we wake up we live and breathe the dream and goal of making it to the Crossfit Games at 14. If it doesn't play into that we don't do that. It's in her heart she has love and passion for it and you can see it. She wouldn't train the way she does day in and day out if she didn't love it. She is always working on ways to improve her game whether it's watching videos of those that motivate her, gymnastics, ballet, mobility or skills. Anything for the extra edge all playing into the ultimate goal! At the end of the day she truly wants to inspire and motivate people to believe in themselves and know that they can accomplish anything they set their minds too. Favorite quote. "I'm gonna show you, how GREAT I am!" - Muhammad Ali

Currently Training to compete at USAW Youth Nationals in June in Austin, TX and WODapooloza in Miami in January 2017.
