In March, six-time CrossFit Games athlete and perennial podium contender Sara Sigmundsdottir suffered a season-ending injury when she ruptured her ACL during a split jerk.

Now nine weeks post-surgery, Sigmundsdottir has resumed somewhat normal training -- she has just been cleared to do kipping gymnastics again, but won’t be able to run until week 16 -- she still has a ways to go, she explained.

  • “What is probably the hardest thing is that everybody I have told that I have this injury says the same thing. ‘Don’t start too early…be patient and bla bla bla,’ and I’m just like, ‘Am I ever going to start again because I’m so afraid of starting’…The hardest thing is trusting that I'm (following) the right process, allowing myself to do the things, trying to push the limit of what I can do, but in a smart way.”

Her partnership with WIT Fitness,  an athletic apparel company, has helped her get through the challenges of being injured, she explained.
