Lindsey's Favorite Gear
SoCal standout Lindsey Valenzuela is 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.
Now 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 and her husband James opened their own affiliate in Moorpark, CA, and they also learned they’d be having their first child. As a result, Valenzuela took a break from competition in 2016 to focus on motherhood, but she expects to be back and stronger than ever in 2017.
