Sydney has been a part of our community for quite some time but over the last 6 months has become one of our most consistent youth members. Sydney participates in our CrossFit teen classes as well as our Bridgeport Barbell Juniors Club and has competed in several weightlifting meets. Sydney's athletic abilities have grown tremendously over these months as well as her confidence. We are so happy to have Sydney as a part of the community and can't wait to see what she will accomplish next!
