K2 Productions had a great shoot yesterday with Christmas Abbott for Reebok CrossFit. We collaborated with Fuel, filming in Raleigh, NC-based CrossFit Invoke, where Christmas is also the proud owner. The workout video, titled 12 Days of Training with Christmas, comes out next month and focuses on Christmas’s amazing CrossFit workouts and recipes to inspire viewers to keep healthy and fit during the Holiday Season.
If you don’t know who Christmas Abbott is, here are some quick facts from Heavy.com:
1. 1st NASCAR Female Pit Crew Member
Abbott is the first female to ever join a NASCAR pit crew, and she definitely earned the spot. She can toss around tires half her size, and she can bolt them on to the race car with extraordinary speed for a rookie. Officials thought she was trying to join as part of a publicity stunt before they saw her in action, but now there’s no question that she can handle it.
2. CrossFit Trainer and Celebrity
She didn’t get that body from lounging around. Abbott was a longtime CrossFit devotee before she owned CrossFit Invoke in Raleigh, North Carolina. She picked up on the fitness routine from a soldier in Iraq and never looked back. The 31-year-old can squat 255 pounds, which would be considerable even if she didn’t weigh only 115 pounds. She reportedly once carried a 125-pound person in one arm and a 70-pound weight in the other, and she can clean and jerk 170 pounds.
3. She Loves Tattoos
As you can see from her photos, Christmas really likes tattoos. It may fall into the stereotype of the intense CrossFit practitioner, but she doesn’t mind (and we don’t either).
4. She’s Really Hot
The whole tattoo thing kind of plays into this fact, but it’s still just as true. She’s been sculpting her body for years now. She’s about as fit as they come, and you really can’t argue with that face. She did a pretty revealing spread for Inked magazine, which allows one to know Christmas in an entirely new way.
5. She May Have a Reality Show
Yep, apparently some producers are already in talks with Christmas about starring in her very own reality television show about her multifaceted life. She told Yahoo! Sports that the attention is still new and that she prefers to be a “quiet underdog,” but it was only a matter of time before the media got ahold of her incredible story. She’s poised for stardom, so take note now while she’s still building steam.
