Cristina Bayardelle

This Floridian, fell in love with CrossFit 6 years ago. As a competitive swimmer and competitive equestrian rider, she found her desire for daily competition satiated in the box.

She has had some impressive results at Regionals, Wodapalooza, Crush Games, Granite Games and the Florida GRID league. She is looking for her first trip to Madison in 2020.

"Throughout my Crossfit journey I have learned that all good things come to those who work hard and are patient throughout the process. It is very easy to get caught up with your ego in this sport and try to perform skills before your body is ready while risking injury just to prove a point or compete with your fellow crossfitter. This happened to me in the beginning of my crossfit career.

I think that being a crossfit athlete has humbled me in so many other aspects of my life. After pushing my body to the limit in many crossfit workouts and realizing there is still room for improvement I have learned to never take anything for granted and to be grateful for everything I have accomplished. Also, Crossfit has taught me to be more understanding of the struggles other people go through on a daily basis simply by forcing me to face my own battles inside and outside of the gym. "
