In 2015 I started weightlifting with New York Weightlifting Academy.  The first time I touched a barbell was when I was introduced to Crossfit.  Last summer I trained in a gym that was dedicated to only weightlifting-- (where I am now). I immediately fell in love with the sport.

 At the time I couldn't tell you why I loved strictly weightlifting.  After meeting these weightlifters- It made it all clear why I switched over to the "dark side" as some folks called it. ha!

There's a process, learning curve or whatever you want to call it, when it comes to weightlifting.  Remaining focused and confident is underrated.  Either way, I found these two weightlifters have a good balance and positive approach to the sport.
