Bad-A*s B*tch Invitational - Women's Only Strongman Contest, Philadelphia, PA

IronSport Gym in Glenolden, PA (outside of Philadelphia) will be holding what is probably the first open amateur women's-only strongman contest ever. We're encouraging both new and veteran strongman (strongwoman?) competitors to be involved, and we'd love to get Crossfitters on board--CF is a great talent pool of women who are not afraid of weights!

The contest is Sunday, August 8th. Contact Steve Pulcinella (steve@ironsport.com) for more info--I've attached an application to this message.

strongman (er..or woman) isn't crossfit. Get the hell outta here!

Just kidding. It's all w/ love.

I hope some crossfitters get involved. I will probably be there as a spectator. Sounds fun!

Ironsport has some real badasses training in it. Kirk and Kevin Nowack to name two as well as Steve Pulcinella I believe (think he may own it actually).
