Find Your Tribe – Kari Pearce

By Heidi Jones | June 6, 2019

Kari Pearce is a 4 Times CrossFit Games athlete, and is the 2018 Fittest American Female.

And we were pumped to have her as our motivator at Brick Grand Central .

Pearce has been involved in fitness her whole life. She started gymnastics at the age of 3 and did it for 18 years.

After competing in college for the University of Michigan Varsity Women’s Gymnastics team, she found weightlifting, then did a physique show and a powerlifting meet before starting CrossFit.

November 2014 is when she began CrossFit and has been to the Games all 4 years since.

Watch as she inspired the women to always reach for their goals and stand strong in their beauty and their strength.
