Scottsdale Woman Places No. 1 In U.S. At Crossfit Games

A lot of us like to exercise, but what motivates someone to turn it into their livelihood?

That’s what Tennil Reed-Beurelein has done. She’s a professional Crossfit athlete, and she just competed in the international Crossfit Games where 40 women and 40 men who have qualified compete in an all-around grueling fitness competition.

Reed-Beuerlein just got 6th in those games. And she placed No. 1 in the U.S. That means she’s been named the Fittest Woman in the country.

She’s a Kingman native and lives here in Scottsdale. So, I went out to her gym recently to talk to her more about the Crossfit Games and what motivates her to do this.
