Stepping into gymnastics while barely learning her ABC’s, Christina Myers has always known the disciplined environment of being an athlete. As a high-level competitor, Christina’s life took an unexpected turn that closed one door, yet flew open another. This change ultimately led her down the path to the dark side we all love so much, powerlifting.
Now, many years later, Christina has taken on many hats as USAPL Alabama Meet Director, Strength Coach, Figure Pro, Model & Gymnastics coach. Ambitious, driven and paving her way so ferociously, Christina is a quiet storm whose demeanor is chill, yet so powerful.
In this episode, Christina and I talk about how she fell in love with the sport and how she landed on the cover of a Birmingham magazine. Listen as we go over:
- Holding a meet for the first time
- Seminars for the new lifter
