Arielle Loewen – Road To The Invitational

For Arielle Loewen, a lot has changed since her 10th place finish at the 2022 Rogue Invitational in Austin, and it’s giving her a new confidence heading into the 2023 event. “After the Invitational last year, I saw there were huge holes,” she says, “so I sat down and I made a list of things I want to work on . . . my training environment, how I train, the style of workouts I was doing, the style of strength I was doing.”

After a career-best third place finish at the CrossFit Games this summer, it was clear that the changes had paid off. Not only was Loewen the 3rd Fittest Woman on Earth; she also became the Fittest American Woman and the Fittest Mom.

Unlike a lot of her peers, Arielle didn’t look to improve by training alongside other elite CrossFitters. Instead, she took more of a back-to-basics approach, training mostly in her home gym, without a coach, and setting her own direction each day. “I don’t have anyone there screaming at me, saying, ‘go faster, you have to do more!’” she explains. “It’s all internal. And when I step on the floor to compete, guess what? It’s all internal.”

Now, Loewen has her eyes squarely on the ‘23 Rogue Invitational, which she calls “the most intimidating competition I do all year. They will throw in heavier stuff and odd-object stuff, so I’m training for more explosiveness and really honing in on getting stronger.”
