Fun fact (or not so fun), if you do a Google search on ‘arm wrestling’, it is definitely presented as the sport of ‘manly men’, of course you know we’re about to tell you otherwise!
Our ZEMbassador Brenda Taylor is a phenomenal woman who wasn’t out to prove anything when she started doing CrossFit. Then, one fateful CrossFit Christmas party, she got challenged to an arm wrestling duel and won. Unbeknownst to her, a fellow arm wrestler would see a picture of that evening’s events and would begin coaching Brenda. She was later scouted from there at the fabulous age of 40 to become a contracted athlete at The Ultimate Arm Wrestling League.
Brenda shared with us that one of the important aspects of arm wrestling is that “when you arm wrestle, you must use your whole body. I need to be balanced and grounded…ZEMgear does the job for me.” Her ZEM choice is the Round Toe 360′s which she told us she wears everywhere drawing attention & questions from onlookers!
“I have competed in multiple CrossFit competitions and Arm wrestling tournaments in California, Kentucky, Georgia, and Tennessee…many, many in the State of Tennessee. I did them in my ZEMs! As matter of fact, my youngest son just competed in his first arm wrestling tournament. He went undefeated and did it in his ZEMs. I am proud to be a ZEMbassador.”
So, the moral of the story is you never know what direction life will take you in when you choose to live in the Zone of Endless Motion!
Good luck to Brenda and her son! We’re of course proud you’re both winners in ZEM’s.
