AlphaFit Equipment and Apparel, one of CrossFit Games athlete Kara Saunders’ sponsors, celebrated her daughter Scotti’s first birthday with what will likely be the envy of all CrossFit parents and kids alike.

Alphafit’s Jamie Montesalvo manufactured the pint-sized squat rack and barbell especially for Scotti Saunders on her first birthday, Friday May 22.

  • The squat rack is equipped with all the same features as the brand’s full-sized racks and cages, including j-hooks and a pull-up bar with a powder coat finish.
  • The brand even matched the color scheme to that of Kara’s affiliate CrossFit Kova in Brisbane, Australia. Take a look at the comparison.
  • Scotti was also given her very first powder-coated barbell in pink, weighing in at 2.2 pound/1kg and 1140mm/45 inches long.

Kara took to her Instagram on Friday morning (AEST) to film the surprise unboxing and an adorable Scotti in her pajamas, looking right at home with the miniature barbell in her hands.

The gift that keeps on giving: The savvy marketing team at Alphafit knew once Kara posted images to her 529k followers on Instagram, they’d be inundated with inquiries.

That’s why they’ve since launched the product on their website so CrossFit fanatics can also have the kid’s free-standing squat rack and barbell custom made to order.

While the setup may be pint-sized, the manufacturing quality is on par with Alphafit’s adult-sized products, so expect to pay a similar price tag. The custom made squat racks start at $945 AUD ($745 USD) and barbell at $175 AUD ($115 USD).

Saunders, a 2020 Games qualifier, has closely documented her postpartum comeback, including her training for this summer’s CrossFit Games. Scotti is clearly her number one fan.

  • Recently Kara posted Scotti’s attempts to mirror her mom in training: “My almost one year old trying to do handstands on her own. She did it for a solid 10 minutes and looked up at me for praise like I had asked of her just minutes ago,” she wrote.

Happy Birthday Scotti from the team here at the Morning Chalk Up. And here’s hoping travel restrictions permitting, we catch you and mom in Aromas, CA later this year.
