On Sunday morning at the CrossFit Games, I had the opportunity to change tires, workout, and chat with Christmas Abbott. No big deal.

Never heard of Christmas Abbott? Well, you’re missing out! She’s super cool. Christmas is an amazing Reebok CrossFit athlete (she’s qualified for the CrossFit Games twice now).

And she also changes tires for NASCAR pit crews. How cool is that?!?

Our workout with Christmas started with her teaching us how to change a tire on a race car.

For real.

I can honestly say changing a race car tire is something I never thought I’d do in my life! It’s actually not as hard as it looks, but in NASCAR races you have to do it really fast. Christmas said she can change two tires in 14 seconds!

Once we learned how to remove the lug nuts from the tire, it was time for a little competition””and, of course, it was CrossFit-inspired!

Here’s the WOD we did:

10 Burpees
5 Tire Flips
1 Burpee
Remove tire from car

It was awesome!

Once Christmas demonstrated the workout, we all had a chance to try it for ourselves.

The Burpees and Tire Flips were no problem for me.

But getting the tire off the car was stressful!


I sort of panicked and struggled with a few of the lug nuts, but, man, it was fun grabbing that tire off the car!

And here’s a short interview that Ericka, Anne, Gina, and I did with Christmas. We each asked her one question, including what she eats (I love what she says about fat), how she changed her unhealthy lifestyle, how she got into changing tires for NASCAR pit crews, and what’s happening with her new CrossFit box.

Questions of the Day

Have you ever changed a tire?

How knowledgeable/skilled are you when it comes to car repairs/maintenance or do you just go to your local mechanic and hand them your credit card like I do?
