HeavyWeights PowerLifting Team at 2015 Nationals

HeavyWeights PowerLifting Team at 2015 Nationals

This past week has been one of the most amazing and incredible experiences of my entire life.

I got the importunity to have a team of 20 lifters and coaches compete at the 2015 CPU PowerLifting Nationals in St. John’s.

There was so many amazing moments and so many happy faces.

I love what we do at HeavyWeights Training Center.
