Career and Professional Life
Christmas tried to join the Army when at the age of 18 after graduation. They rejected her and she also accepted that she was in really bad shape.
At the age of 22, she joined the US base in Iraq as an independent civilian laundry attendant then she realized the value of human life and how she was wasting away her life.
Finally, she quit smoking and started following a strict and disciplined fitness routine. She came across the CrossFit regime when a fellow soldier showed her a video of women taking on intensive challenges.
She instantly started achieving one milestone after the other until she destroyed every milestone in the renowned CrossFit Challenge.
Then, she returned to the US after four years in Iraq and started her own CrossFit coaching class in Raleigh. Also, she has a gun tattooed on her hip “to remind her of the time she spent in Iraq.”
In 2010, she opened her own gym, named –” CrossFit Evoke.” And focused on developing her own brand. In 2013, she also became the first woman to be a participating member of a NASCAR pit crew.
She opened a Christmas Abbott CrossFit-centric workshop in 2014. In 2017, she joined Big Brother 19 and won third place.
She broke her foot in the second episode of the season with 10 broken bones, four dislocated bones, and a ligament that was to be reconstructed.
Later, she had to get a donor bone in one place, and surgeons told her that she would not regain full mobility, effectively ending her competitive CrossFit career.
She has been on the cover of Sports Illustrated and Harper Collins with her ripped and sexy physique.
In fact, her physique got so much attention that she decided it was time to write down all of her fitness tips and that is when she wrote her book “The Badass Body Diet”.
In May 2015, Abbott released her first book, called – The Badass Body Diet: The Breakthrough Diet and Workout for a Tight Booty, Sexy Abs, and Lean Legs.
The book sold so well and made her a National Best Selling Author so she decided to write another book. On May 23, 2017, she published her second book, named – The Badass Life.
This book is actually her month-long program to help you achieve a heightened sense of self-worth as well as a higher quality of life.
It encourages habit change through fun, dynamic daily tasks challenging your mind, body, and spirit.
She was with NASCAR for a while changing tires for various kinds of races. Later, she decided that the time requirements and the wear and tear of the job were too much.
She was 30 years old, the age at which most people start having health issues. Even though she loved it she had to move on.
She has also played in other TV shows and movies like Overtown, The Operator: Warfare, and Tattoo Titans. Considering this is a completely male profession it is quite an accomplishment.
Moreover, she is also the Oxygen Magazine Trainer Challenge Head Trainer and an online fitness coach.
