Within the powerlifting community, the name “CC” has become synonymous with greatness. Young, ambitious and strong as hell, Chakera “CC” Ingram brought the fire each meet, demolishing world record after world record with no end in sight. She stormed the powerlifting community with what seemed like an overnight success yet as you will soon find out, CC has been rising from the ash since childhood.
Not known to many is the struggles CC has endured throughout her life. We intimately discuss not only abuse at a young age, but infidelity and more recently, life-altering domestic violence. Optimistic and yet full of life, Chakera opens up on a level that is raw, inspiring and hopeful towards the future.
In this episode, CC and I find ourselves laughing through heart wrenching difficult stories. Listen as we go over:
- Being true to yourself
- Lifting beyond rage
- Building her life back up
- Forgiveness and moving on
- Laughing through it all
