My name is Valérie Deslauriers.
Amateur Olympic weightlifter and part-time CrossFitter. I'm just a regular French-Canadian girl on a quest for athletic awesomeness, trying to make sense of all this training, nutrition and recovery stuff. My day job consists of keeping other people organized and being an office superhero. Can you tell I take pride in what I do?! My goal with this site is to hopefully inspire, inform but also motivate the crap out of you and make you laugh as much as possible because, let's face it, life is too short to lift with a frown!
