About Lizzy

Lizzy is a Los Angeles based powerlifter, group fitness instructor, coach, and handstand fanatic. Originally, she starting training to help improve her athletic performance in team sports but quickly fell in love with the sport of powerlifting, as well the overly supportive strength community that surrounded the sport. She has trained and learned from some of the best in the world.



She is a firm believer training should not only make you stronger but be a fun, positive, exploratory journey. By sharing her strength and yoga practice she intends on helping everyone move freely; ultimately allowing them to improve both performance and overall wellness. 

You can find her at taking private clients at Mission Fitness Center in Pasadena, instructing classes Pharos in Echo Park, or sharing her story on Instagram @FresaFuerte. 

Lizzy is currently continuing her pursuit of strength, building a bad-ass physique and continuing her education, but also has experience in other sports such as CrossFit, weightlifting, triathlon, ultimate frisbee, cycling and circus arts.
