Some girls look up to celebrities, actors, fashion designers, reality stars, musicians but not me, the people I look up to are athletes. It’s something about the drive to compete, pushing through your limits, and becoming a better athlete that I am so obsessed and passionate about. Lindsey Valenzuela is one of those women who I admire. Some people say oh she is to buff for a women, but seriously that’s ridiculous and hate when people say that. I swear she is beautiful and hopefully I can achieve that one day and all i need is determination. 


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!


Sam Briggs vs. Lindsey Valenzuela


I am grateful to have met Sam Briggs at the CrossFit Games Europe Regional. She’s such a great person. Seeing her and Lindsey bounding is even more inspiring to team up and empower each other to achieve ones goals.
