This Saturday Spotlight series showcases the participants of the Kim to Zim Outreach Group.
Q: How did you get started in powerlifting?
A: A training buddy convinced me to do a bench only contest.
Q: What is your favorite lift and why?
A: Deadlift!!!! It is the one lift out of the three where you fight against gravity to start. It is the first opportunity to secure a total in a meet. The last opportunity to fight for championships, placement, records, and PRs.
Q: How has strength training impacted your life?
A: It has increased my motivation to be a better version of me everyday because I want to pay homage to God for this gift. It has allowed me to interact with soo many people around the world and I’m so thankful for such a gift.
Q: What motivated you to want to be a part of the Kim to Zim Outreach Trip?
A: To give back. I love our sport and want to spread the awesomeness of powerlifting in any way that I can.
