Camille Leblanc-Bazinet knows a thing or two about strength and conditioning. (One does not merely win the 2014 CrossFit Games without superhuman levels of fitness.) So when Red Bull introduced the Canadian CrossFitter to a group of elite athletes from the discipline of ice cross downhill (aka “Crashed Ice“) ahead of Red Bull Crashed Iced: Saint Paul, even these ace skaters knew they were in for a WOD to remember.
After the workout, two of the sport’s top athletes—Cameron Naasz and Amanda Trunzo—spoke with Men’s Fitness about competing in Crashed Ice, mental toughness, and training with Leblanc-Bazinet. (Yes, they survived the WOD.)
