Sam Briggs & Elijah “EZ” Muhammad Throw Down For a Cause
“I truly believe that sports should be for everybody, and you should be able to feel welcome going into a gym and not feel that you have to train at home or you’re not welcome somewhere.” —Sam Briggs, 2013 Fittest Woman on Earth
Two-time Games athlete Elijah “EZ” Muhammad and six-time Games veteran Sam Briggs are doing their parts to bring diversity and inclusivity into sports and the CrossFit space.
In the final week of the 2021 NOBULL CrossFit Games Open, Muhammad and Briggs went head-to-head in Open Workouts 21.3 and 21.4 as part of a charity workout.
Briggs represented the OUT Foundation, and Muhammad represented Project Onyx, an organization he co-founded with Patrick Ford, a physical therapist and fellow leader in the Grimes, Iowa, fitness community.
Both organizations are dedicated to providing equal access to health and fitness services and education to underserved and underrepresented communities.
Watch these two CrossFit legends in action.
