Hailing from Canada, we are very excited to introduce the newest member of Team FITAID. At just 16 years old, Emma Lawson is taking the CrossFit community by storm. Growing up, Emma was a competitive dancer and acro which has been a positive influence for her in terms of athletics, work ethic, flexibility, strength, and teamwork. However, coming from a family of CrossFitters, Emma decided to follow in the footsteps of her parents. She’s been involved in CrossFit since she was 7 years old and began competing during the summer of 2018. 


In 2019, Emma competed in the girls 14-15 division finishing 5th worldwide and 1st in Canada. The following year in 2020, Emma competed again in the girls 14-15 division and finished 1st worldwide and ranked number 1 in Canada. After very strong performances in 2019 and 2020, it was only fitting that Emma would continue to impress during the 2021 16-17 Girls division and she did exactly that. 


At the CrossFit games in Madison, WI, Emma came out the gates hot. She finished first in Events 1 and 2, and a second place finish in Event 3. She is just one of two 16-year olds to ever win the 16-17 girls division, and the first since 2017. Emma was crowned the “Fittest on Earth” after claiming the top spot in the Girls 16-17 division. The FITAID family looks forward to working with Emma as she continues her growth in CrossFit and her rise to the top!
