After graduating from Alvin in 2009 with two state titles and a second place #nish at the USA Weightlifing University National Championships I moved to Louisiana to a)end LSU Shreveport.

I also had the opportunity to train with the 2011 Colombian National Weightlifing Team and with multiple Japanese Weightlifting Association Collegiate Athletes. In 2013 I moved to Colorado Springs to train at the U.S. Olympic Training Center to train as full time resident athlete as a 2016 Olympic hopeful under National Coach Zygmunt Smalcerz.

  • Carl Vliet

         Grew up playing soccer and football as a kid.  I really got into skateboarding in my teenage years.   It wasn't till 1999 that I first set foot in a weight room, and really fell in love with bodybuilding and powerlifting. After high school I decided I wanted to help people set and achieve their fitness goals. I went to college in California and studied sports nutrition and sports physiology.  

          I remember stumbling upon the Crossfit Games on tv in 2014, watching these people running and lifting and other crazy stuff, and thinking I could do that. I sought out a Crossfit gym shortly after thinking I was going to crush the workout and blow everyone away......I didn't. It was  one of the hardest workouts I'd ever done and I was the last person to finish it. I was hooked, I had to get back and find out how to get better.

         At the beginning of 2017 I decided I didn't want to just train in Crossfit but to help train others. I received my CF-L1 in February of 2017 and have been actively helping people set and achieve their fitness goals since.
