I am a former collegiate olympic-weightlifter for the Louisiana State University-Shreveport. Upon graduating college and retiring from weightlifting, I entered CrossFit at Outsiders CrossFit and haven’t looked back since. I love that it combines the movements I have always enjoyed with exercises I have always avoided. It is the perfect combination of strength and cardiovascular ability. Years after my last lifting competition, I have CrossFit to thank for my health, happiness, and continued competitive career.
