Regular price $ 29.95

My story so far ... 

Every since I was in primary school, I loved to compete. I lived for sport, particularly running, and would push myself to the limit to become better than yesterday. It may come as a surprise to you, but I always came second; I was always the underdog, that person who just fell short. But somehow, I never gave up, I just felt that fire in my belly get stronger and stronger—I wanted to do more, be more, achieve more. The day I finally came first was something I had always dreamed of. At 24 years old, I was crowned the winner of the 2017 CrossFit Games, and officially became the Fittest Woman on Earth. When I heard my name called in front of thousands of cheering fans, I felt like I was invincible, I felt like I was on top of the world and like everything up until that point actually made sense. With the support of my family, my partner Shane, and coaches along the way, I was able to finally achieve my dream of being number one. 

This is my story of how I got to where I am today. I hope you enjoy it, but more importantly, I hope it inspires you to dream big, work hard and never give up! 

About the Author

Queensland native Tia-Clair Toomey rocked the CrossFit world after taking second at the 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games as a rookie—after only two years of CrossFit—and earning the distinction of Rookie of the Year. She proved it was no fluke with another second-place finish in 2016. Though her background is in track and field, she became Australia’s top-ranked female weightlifter in 2016, qualifying for the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where she snatched 82 kg (180.7 lb.) and clean-and-jerked 107 kg (235.8 lb.) for 14th place in the 58-kg category. Owner of CrossFit Gladstone in Queensland, she is the only CrossFit athlete to have competed in the CrossFit Games and the Olympics in the same year.
