Overall, the qualification process for the Wodapalooza Miami CrossFit Festival will remain largely the same. Athletes who wish to compete for a spot will complete the Online Challenge & Qualifier, set to begin on Wednesday. In light of the recent partnership, WZA has added one division to the WZA Miami event: Elite Co-ed Team of 4 (MM/FF). This does not replace the various divisions featuring teams of 3 of the same gender, however, this will further add to the competitive spectacle. Athletes who wish to participate in the new team division will receive more information later this week via WZA’s social channels and website.

WZA Stories - Amy Williams

WZA Stories: Amy Williams

By News, WZA Community

Amy Williams, owner of CrossFit Carnivore, is no stranger to Wodapalooza. In 2017, CrossFit Carnivore had 85 of their members compete in the WZA Online Challenge & Qualifier (WZAOC). Amy and CrossFit Carnivore are a huge piece of the WZA Community!

Amy’s journey in CrossFit, however, has not always been easy. Before she turned 30, her bones began to spontaneously break. Her body fat had dropped, and her bone density was dangerously low, which ultimately contributed first to a broken hand and then to a broken hip.

“I hit rock bottom when I broke my hip from basically just walking,” said Williams, now 34. At the time she had also been trying to get pregnant but had stopped menstruating, which interfered with her ability to conceive.
