"I decided I wanted to give CrossFit a chance, and I'm really glad I did," Annie Thorisdottir says. "I think it couldn't have turned out any better. Really happy with it."

Join filmmaker Sevan Matossian as he captures the 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games winner Annie Thorisdottir back at her Iceland box, CrossFit BC Island. She reveals more about herself as an athlete and coach.

Thorisdottir credits her background as a gymnast for much of her success in CrossFit. She started coaching gymnastics at age 15 and has been coaching CrossFit for almost two years.

In addition to her fitness pursuits, Thorisdottir is also a full-time student studying chemistry.

"I wanna study medicine—I just haven't had time for it," she says.

Thorisdottir has been even busier since returning to Iceland.

"After the Games this year, like everybody in Iceland knows what CrossFit is," she says. In fact, the popularity of the sport means she has even had to turn down new clients due to lack of space.

Thorisdottir says her routine is to train twice a day, with gymnastics, mobility and technique in the morning and strength, heavier technique and met-cons in the afternoon. She also shares info on her nutrition and her supplemental training, which periodically includes yoga.

"I'm excited about next year, and I'm excited about competing next year," Thorisdottir says. "I wanna win, of course, but it's always the thing: you're getting better, everybody else is getting better—you never know."
