Good luck to the Equality Weightlifting team this weekend in Lewisville, TX at the Texas State Weightlifting Championships!

Coach Michael, Aly, Jamie R, David W and Brooke have all been working hard to get to the state level!

If you are new to CFE and not sure who these folks are these are the guys and gals banging around heavy barbells and making loud grunting noises (or is that a scream Coach Michael?!) along the back wall at the box!

During the weightlifting meet this weekend, they will each have 3 attempts at the Snatch and Clean & Jerk movements.  Their score is based on their combined weight on their Snatch, their combined weight on their C&J and their overall combined weight of all successful lifts.  Be sure to get your kilo to pounds app out as all their weights are measured in kilograms!

Below you will find a link to watch a live stream of the meet along with each athletes go time!  Mark your calendars!


MICHAEL  Friday – 7pm – Blue Platform

ALY & JAMIE  Saturday – 8am – Red Platform

DAVID  Saturday – 3:30pm – Blue Platform
