Caitlin B.
In an industry that is constantly telling women they need to be smaller, I found my passion in the opposite of that: strength training, building muscle and gaining weight. When I started focusing on the weight on the bar rather than the weight on the scale, that's when everything clicked. I found not just physical strength, but mental strength as well. Lifting heavy hasn't just improved my overall health and longevity, it's taught me discipline, grit, and how to overcome adversity. My goal is to dispel the myth that lifting is bad for women because it makes them masculine. Lifting doesn't make women masculine, it makes them strong, confident, and resilient. When I started powerlifting about 6 years ago, my best deadlift was 135lbs. Since then I've deadlifted over 300lbs. The past 2 years I've been doing Olympic Weightlifting and have fallen in love with how challenging it is mentally and physically. It has taught me the harder something is, the greater the reward. That's what I try to express in my coaching. Making a change is never easy, but it'll always be worth it. If it is easy, you're probably doing something wrong.
