Before firing up the grill for the Fourth, don’t forget to fire up your body with an Independence Day workout. Even if you’re traveling or spending the day with friends and family, there are plenty of fun ideas for incorporating fitness into the holiday without hitting the gym.
Priscilla Barrera-Cintron has been active her whole life. She started with gymnastics, jazz, and ballet at age 2, and never slowed down.
For her 13th and final event at the 2017 Crossfit Games, Kari Pearce completed three handstand push-ups and five kettlebell deadlifts, followed by five handstand push-ups and eight kettlebell deadlifts, then another eight handstand push-ups and 13 kettlebell deadlifts. Then she picked up two 35-lb. kettlebells and lunged with them overhead to the finish line. That was after four days of grueling competition: lifting, climbing, running, swimming, and cycling. Of course she was tired. Of course she was in pain. Still, she powered through to finish fifth in the event.
From the moment we’re born, we want to move.
Kari Pearce shot to the top of the global CrossFit rankings when she started the sport in 2014, but fitness and movement have been part of her life since she was a child. She started gymnastics at age 3, and continued competing through college. After gymnastics, Kari switched to bodybuilding, and ultimately found her passion in CrossFit. For Pearce, training six days a week for competition isn’t only a matter of chasing her CrossFit podium dreams; it’s about recognizing that her body was Made2Move.
