Weightlifting Coaching


For over eighteen years, Cara dedicated herself to prepare for national and international weightlifting competition.


Throughout her career, Cara was provided the unique opportunity to train at top USAW regional weightlifting training centers, including as a resident athlete at the Olympic Training Center, and to learn from some of the most respected weightlifting coaches in the United States. 


Today as a USA Weightlifting certified International Coach, Cara enjoys sharing her decades of competing and coaching experience through group training and competition team coaching, as well as weightlifting classes, clinics, seminars and camps.


Cara’s fun, accessible teaching style and motivating coaching philosophy ensures athletes at all levels benefit from her extensive knowledge and experience as a world-class athlete and weightlifting coach.
