CrossFit icon's journey from front line to "badass"



Christmas Abbott is a muscular new force in the world of fitness. The CrossFit star built a following by rebuilding herself, becoming battle-tested, inside and out, reports CBS News correspondent Jim Axelrod.

"Calories in, calories out" is a mantra anyone chasing the holy grail of a healthier body has heard before, but to earn the body of a "badass," as Abbott describes in her new book, it will take some more effort.

The 34-year-old, barely-120-pound, CrossFit competitor, Olympic weightlifter and fitness model hasn't always resembled a picture of perfect health.

"I was in terrible shape. I had almost a decade of really destroying my body," Abbott said.

She smoked too much, drank too much and says she could barely run a mile.

"It was devastating to me. At 22 years old, I couldn't run a mile and when I finished it, it took me a week to recover," Abbott said. Check it out here: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/crossfit-icon-christmas-abbott-journey-from-front-line-to-badass/
