LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) -

Beach body season is upon us and a national competition encouraging fitness had its sights set on our area. 

CrossFit La Crosse hosted a women's only fitness competition. La Crosse is just one of several locations across the country participating in the event. The goal of the event is to help raise awareness about strength training for women.

"Every woman here is here is to compete against themselves, but they’re also here to encourage others to do their best,” said Peter Olson, CrossFit La Crosse coach.
