Who dat?

Prisais, aka “Princess P”, is a four-year-old CrossFitter who just might smoke you in the gym.

Her dad, James Townsend, is a former Chicago Bears wide receiver turned CrossFitter and co-affiliate owner of Autumo CrossFit with Lindsey Valenzuela.

Her stats.

Growing up with a gym-owner dad, she spends a lot of time around the box. She began swinging from the rings and doing push-ups when she was only 12-months-old. Now, at four, she’s doing 55 pound deadlifts, handstand push-ups, L-sits, pull-ups, and box jumps. And she recently started taking gymnastics. Being in the gym is just her fav.

Her future.

With a growing social media following, this tiny little Californian has a bright future ahead, but not everyone’s on board. Back in November 2017, a video of Prisais back squatting 55 pounds went absolutely viral, being viewed almost 2 million times and causing quite the stir. Like we’re talking ‘big deal’ folks, with parents up in arms all over the Internets. It doesn’t seem to have slowed them down tho.
