Had a phenomenal time speaking with CrossFit Athlete Lindy Barber about her incredible journey getting to the pinnacle of the CrossFit sport. She takes us all the way back to childhood and discusses her active upbringing and how sport and fitness has always been a huge part of her life. We go in depth on her battle with lower back issues and the incredible story of anguish and then perseverance to overcome the doctor’s prognosis and achieve her goals. We also have a neat discussion around nutrition as well as her own fitness coaching business and the next chapter in her career.
Lindy Barber has a Bachelors in Exercise Science and has been competing in CrossFit for 7 years. She has been to the CrossFit Games twice as an individual (2013, 2015) and three times on a team with CrossFit Mayhem Freedom, winning the games in 2016 & 2018 and coming in second in 2017. Lindy now resides in the northeast and is a full time fitness coach working with students both in person and online to help them with their overall fitness & nutrition.
