Though not born with the last name, Cryssa undoubtedly embodies the traits of a Dragon. Strong, ambitious and not one to back down from a challenge, she takes on life’s maneuvers head-on and focuses her mind on the finish line.
Currently transitioning from EMT into firefighter/paramedic, Cryssa Dragon has learned to style step her powerlifting training to match the demands of the academy. Though training to have 1158 single-ply total was important at one point in time, Cryssa also knew training for her career & lifestyle would need to take precedence. A jack of all trades, you can now find Cryssa snatching some weight in her home gym and kicking some shins with Muay Thai.
In this episode, Cryssa and I talk about how she had a love for dancing and how that love transitioned to powerlifting. Listen as we go over:

- Conjugate training
- Ego Is My Enemy
