“I said I’d never work in the NBA”
Coach Cory Schlesinger [@schlesstrength] joins us this week to talk about his 10 years of unique experiences working strength and conditioning at the collegiate level and about how he swore he’d never work in the NBA. Cut to…his role at the Phoenix Suns. His story is a reminder that it doesn’t pay to just blend into an organization and hope something happens to propel you into big programs like Wake Forest, Stanford, and University of Alabama Birmingham. While Cory has predominantly worked with basketball, he’s developed his own philosophy on the role of strength training within the sport. His theory may surprise you, but not as much as his taste in movies.

A strength and conditioning coach since 2009, Cali has worked with numerous athletes spanning from rugby players to cross country skiers. Almost immediately after finding CrossFit in 2010, she was introduced to a program that better suited her athletic goals. With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.
