Spencer

SPENCER ARNOLD:

Exercise, athletics and competition have been a constant in Spencer’s life since he could walk. He picked up Olympic Weightlifting at age 13 as a complement to football and wrestling. Soon thereafter, football and wrestling became complements to weightlifting. From that platform he has competed  and medaled in National competitions around the United States including the Junior National Championships, National Championships and the American Open. He began coaching the sport in college and has since fallen in love with seeing others do and complete things they never saw possible. As a junior in college, he walked into his first experience with Crossfit. He realized immediately that his background in Olympic weightlifting and strength and conditioning would be of massive help to the sport of fitness.  He began coaching Crossfit immediately.  Eventually, he began coaching and programming for elite Crossfit athletes helping them to reach their goals in the Open, Regionals, and the Games.
