Bio

My name is Lindsey Valenzuela and I have been an athlete all my life. As a child I participated in jazzdance, swam, and played volleyball. My main athletic focus turned to volleyball as I grew into my middle school and high school years. I was fortunate enough to carry my love for the sport of volleyball into a college career at California Lutheran University. It was as a college volleyball player that I discovered Olympic Weightlifing. I used the lifts as my offseason strength program during my college volleyball career. Although my college volleyball career eventually ended my passion to compete did not. The passion for competition led to my start as a competitive Olympic Weightlifter. It was also through Olympic Weightlifting that I stumbled upon the sport of CrossFit. I now use these two sports to satisfy my competitive spirit, and am very thankful for the opportunity to be an elite athlete in both. The motto I swear by is simple, BELIEVE!
