Cali Hinzman

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.

    1. Did LAX shut down because of your knowledge bombs?
    2. I would own at Water-Water-Shot-Shot. I used to work in China. Google “doing business in China at Karaoke bars.”
    2. Denny must be your Marketing Guy. So so eloquent re: subbing heavy lifts for skill work.
    3. See you in November. I want to be the Grand President Ruler of Things.

    Platek should make sure he locks his knees out at the top. It’s not hard but an easy to forget step.
