Devon found weightlifting through CrossFit. He instantly gravitated towards the Olympic lifts because of the challenge that they posed. Before, every sport had come fairly easy to him without much thought about the minute details. In weightlifting every day came a new mountain to climb and new aspects of the sport to learn. The constant work that had to be put in to understand the movements created a new passion: coaching.

Currently Devon teaches the movements to beginning lifters daily, coaches CrossFit, and is a full-time student UCCS working towards a undergrad in exercise science. Through patience and repetition he believes anyone can find success and gratification through Olympic weightlifting.
