Before becoming a two-time “Fittest Woman on Earth,” CrossFit athlete Annie Thorisdottir developed her drive and work ethic in her native Iceland, where she says there’s always been “support from the community to be a strong and independent woman.” Annie’s personal connection to her homeland is just one of many stories shared by Icelandic strength athletes in the new full-length documentary film Fullsterkur, produced by Rogue Fitness.
Releasing live on Facebook, Sunday, August 26 at 8PM EST, FULLSTERKUR is the third documentary in a collection of films produced by Rogue Fitness, exploring strength culture around the world, connected specifically by the ancient tradition of stone lifting.
The film features some of the modern stars of Iceland strength, including Magnus Ver Magnuson, Hafthor Bjornsson, and Annie Thorisdottir. But it also sheds light on strength culture’s early roots in the region, from the traditions of the Vikings and Sagas to the lives of farmers and fishermen.
