Become a Better Version of You: An Interview with Alexis Johnson


“CrossFit is still me trying to better me, as opposed to me trying to beat the competition.”

Alexis Johnson is a CrossFit Games athlete, 2x TFX champion, and winner of the 2017 TFX Qualifier — and she’s a math Ph.D. student. Jeremy Thiel, founder of TFX, caught up with Alexis to talk about training, visualization and her journey through the sport of CrossFit.

Alexis shares her experience of entering into CrossFit with an eating disorder, how CrossFit helped her overcome that disorder and ultimately lead her down a path to become the competitive champion we know today.
