Behold the unparalleled beauty of Camille Leblanc-Bazinet, who is literally “The Fittest Woman On Earth,” as well as the idol of CrossFit fans around the world.
Look, she’s gorgeous, athletic, fierce, adorable…everything admirable. Anyone who has seen any photos or videos of her, can confirm that she is absolutely every single one of these well-suited superlatives.
However, after spending this past weekend with her as one of my coaches during my CrossFit Level 1 Certificate Course, I got to experience firsthand that perhaps the best of all her superhuman traits, is her ability to actually be, well, just a super HUMAN.
Not only was she extremely knowledgable in all of the CrossFit methodology, nutrition talks, and uh, ofcourse the movements, but she was exceptionally engaging, accessible, and grounded. I spoke with her at length both days about themes that transcend the CrossFit community that I deal with on a daily basis with my health coaching clients ala body image, dysmorphia, relationships, and self-love. She and I spoke as two like-minded women chatting about topics that evoked passion and concern. You know, one fit woman talking to, ok, THE fittest woman.
It was her down-to-earth persona that was her most admirable quality of all, and I felt genuinely refreshed knowing that young girls everywhere truly have a respectable role model to emulate. Too often, the word “role model” gets tossed around, as people often confuse celebrity with superior human spirit. Camille Leblanc-Bazinet embodies both. Besides being effortlessly cool, she truly is a super human. And for this title, she’s got no competition
