It’s not too often we get a sneak peak into what life is really like for a professional CrossFitter.

With all the training, dieting and endless competitions, we often forget they too lead a normal life and deal with the every day battles we all do.

The following video takes us into the life of 2011 CrossFit champion, Annie Thorisdottir, all the way over in the tiny country of Iceland.

The 30 minute doco details her rigorous training regime inside her gym, CrossFit BC Island and tells us more about her as a coach and an athlete.

In the clip she also reveals why she’s not into the Paleo diet, how she’s become so good after just two years in the sport and just how CrossFit has changed her life.

Definitely a MUST SEE for anyone new to the sport.
