I wanted to share this article back in 2022 but could not access it as it is from Australia. it is now available to read. if you ever wanted to get inspired or want to know everything about Tia, here you go!

When we catch up with Tia-Clair Toomey-Orr – six-time Fittest Woman on Earth – it’d been a month since she last did a workout. “It’s definitely hard,” she says of her enforced break but it’s been a much-needed one. Little did the world know, two weeks out from solidifying her status in CrossFit history as the most dominant athlete in the sport, Tia could barely walk. “I couldn’t even get out of bed. It was a pretty bad [back injury],” she confesses. “It’s not something I’ve spoken or been open about, just because I never want to create excuses or anything like that.”

For the 29-year-old, originally from Nambour, a rural town in the Sunshine Coast region, excuses just aren’t an option. No matter what life throws at her. Like the time she had to dig deep to win a gold medal in weightlifting at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, a week after her cousin died suddenly in a car accident. Or earlier this year, when she qualified for the Winter Olympics in bobsleigh, only to then miss out on selection by the Australian team. So when Tia injured her back, she cast out any excuses and zoned in on what she needed to do – not just to get her body well enough to compete in the five-day 2022 CrossFit Games in August, over 13 events, but to stand on top of the podium. And she did it, winning the title of Fittest on Earth for the sixth year in a row. It’s a feat no other athlete has achieved.

“Now, it’s about recovering my back,” she tells WH from her home in Nashville, Tennessee. “Normally, I’d do the Rogue Invitational in October, but I’m taking this off season as a complete off season. I’m very unfit!” Here, Tia (who, even in this “unfit” phase is probably still fitter than the majority of the planet) shares how she went after her dream life, the way she deals with setbacks and whether she’ll be going after her seventh CrossFit Games title … all in her own words.
