Lindsey's Favorite Gear
SoCal standout Lindsey Valenzuela has excelled as both a competitive OIympic lifter and an elite level CrossFitter. The Runner-Up finisher at the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games first took up serious Oly lifting during her years as an All-American volleyball player at California Lutheran University. This eventually led her to pursue CrossFit as the ultimate, well-rounded outlet for her many athletic skills.
A three-time Top 10 finisher at the CrossFit Games, Valenzuela showed her intestinal fortitude when she rebounded from a disappointing 2014 to make a strong return to the Games in 2015, placing seventh and proving she was still a force to be reckoned with. Later that year, Lindsey became the co-owner of her own affiliate in Moorpark, CA, and also learned she’d be having her first child. A subsequent year-off has provided Lindsey with her greatest test yet. After narrowly missing a chance to qualify in her return to the California Regionals in 2017, she is already chomping at the bit for the 2018 season.
