With a love of cooking and a little culinary finesse, Leah Lutz could be found preparing some amazing dishes for her family and friends. Teacher by trade and amateur chef at heart, squatting was the furthest thing from her mind. But as Leahs weight slowly progressed, she needed something very different to push her out of her comfort zone and make some drastic changes.
Leahs story is one of persistence, dedication, and immense growth. Losing over 100lbs was a difficult road however retraining her mindset to allow foods she deemed “bad” back in her diet proved to be another difficulty. With guidance from her coach Dr. Jordan Feigenbaum, founder of Barbell Medicine, Leah discovered how nutrition & powerlifting could lead her down a path of strength both physically and mentally.
